A Thin Line Between Love and Hate would be completely forgettable if it wasn’t also the debut (and, only) film written and directed by star Martin Lawrence. Ah, yes lets remember back to a time, when in early 1996 Martin was considered a bigger movie star than Will Smith. That was before Lawrence’s disruptive behavior on-set and in his personal life torpedoed his once white-hot career streak. I digress. It’s clearly obvious that A Thin Line Between Live and Hate is a vanity project in the mold of Eddie Murphy’s Boomerang. However, unlike Murphy’s star vehicle, Hate is lacking anything remotely resembling wit or style. It isn’t exactly terrible – it’s just completely uninspired.
