You wouldn’t go to an optometrist for a sprained ankle, why do we always go to girls for guy advice? Thanks to Steve Harvey’s “Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man” we don’t have to. And thanks to Screen Gems’ “Think Like a Man” starring Kevin Hart, Taraji P. Hensen, Romany Alco, Megan Good and Gabrielle Union, to name a few, we can have a hilarious movie version.
“Think Like a Man” gives an inside look into a man’s world and what can happen when ladies get their own guidebook for how to get what they want. The film features a few great case studies: Mamma’s Boy (Terrence J), Player (Romany Alco), Dreamer (Michael Ealy) and the Non-Committal (Jerry Ferrera). Where does Kevin Hart fit in? He’s the hilarious thread that weaves it all together and the self-proclaimed happily divorced man.
The women of the film have had enough of let downs and losers. After Mya (Megan Good) has a terrible experience with a hot, but douchebag player, played by Chris Brown, she turns to Steve Harvey’s book to learn how to get a keeper (It has something to do with cookies). Gabrielle Union’s character has been with her boyfriend (Jerry Ferrera) for nine years and he still hasn’t put a ring on it! The film tracks how their relationships unfold and how the guys depend on each other for support during their YMCA basketball games and bro parties at Rush Street.
You might need to see the movie twice, just to catch all of the celeb cameos in this movie! Keep your eyes peeled to see Lisa Leslie, Toccara, Keri Hilson, Wendy Williams and so many more.
Romantic comedies often deliver one or two laughs, but hardly the howls you get from watching “Bridesmaids” or “The 40-Year-Old Virgin.” “Think Like a Man” may make you cry, but they will be tears of laughter! Its balance of romance and comedy makes it a tasty treat. Director Tim Story shot for a romantic comedy that appeals to everyone, not just an African-American audience, and he scores.
