Summary "A thin line between love & hate": A womanizer persistently woos and finally wins the love of a savvy businesswoman. But when he decides it's time to move on, her fierce countermove is something he didn't anticipate. One way or another, she always gets her man. "Love Jones": A smooth-talking writer and a sharp-eyed photographer explore their mutual attraction in this tale set in hip Chicago settings and layered with the emotional uplift -- and rocky shoals -- of a new relationship. "Love and basketball": From the playground to the pro leagues, Monica and Quincy taught each other how to play the game. Now, their commitment to the sport will force them to make a choice between each other and the game ... between family and team. "Love don't cost a thing": Alvin is a brilliant, but awkward teenager, who seizes a golden opportunity when popular cheerleader, Paris, wrecks her parents SUV and is strapped for cash. Alvin and Paris agree to strike a bargain: Alvin will do the repairs for free if Paris pretends to be his girlfriend for two weeks, all in the hopes of elevating his fledgling social standing. Little does he know, being popular is not all that it's cracked up to be.
