Subtitled "The Definitive Reason Why Men Are Dogs", Book of Love is a mockumentary following the lives of three L.A. bachelors (Eric K. George, Anthony "Treach" Criss, and (Richard T. Jones) as they recover from a series of unhealthy relationships. The team of average Joes are no match for their manipulative girlfriends (Robin Givens, Mari Morrow, and Salli Richardson) , however, and the over eager men are taken for all they're worth. It's this manipulative, self-serving treatment that drives the young bachelors into behaving like "dogs" themselves. Directed by Jeff Byrd, Book of Love was produced by both BET Studios and 5th Gear Entertainment, and eventually released by Strange Fruit Films. ~ Tracie Cooper, Rovi
Since I never heard of the film before but rented it based solely on the description and reviews my expectation was luke warm. The is a pleasant surprise. A very good film with good performances. And for anyone who like to see hip hop artists in film will smile warmly at Treach's performance.
I can't believe how much I enjoyed this movie.
I would recommend this movie to all of my girlfriend.
The reason some men act the way they do "is" because of how some woman / women ( from their past) have treated them.
And then when a good woman does comes along, he doesnt know how to treat her. Let's not forget the scene in the movie when the guy does meets the good woman but he still has that baggage and destroys what could have been a good relationship.
And another good reason to watch this movie, "Treach" All I am going to say is Laaaaaawd have mercy. (smile)
