Shante Smith (Vivica A. Fox) is a woman who gives advice on how to keep a man in check. Her ideals are challenged when her man, an attorney, named Keith Fenton (Morris Chestnut), threatens to stray. Smith is a well educated woman who feels that when it comes to men and their tricks, she knows them all. On the other end, Shante’s boyfriend Keith is being led by his friend Tony (Anthony Anderson), who thinks he knows all the tricks that women play. When Shanté's boyfriend, Keith, is caught red-handed stepping out with a co-worker, Shanté institutes her "Ten Day Plan" to get her man in line. The battle soon begins.Though at the conclusion of the movie Shante and Keith get back together, it is insinuated in the sequel Three Can Play That Game that they are separated.
Tony: I don't need to know nothin' 'bout women when I got a momma, a cat, nine sisters and a gay uncle.
Tony: The CIA ain't got shit on a woman with a plan!
Shanté Smith: Hmm, men. They like a woman in public....and a freak in private.
