Causing relationship conflicts throughout the states, is this past weekends number #1 movie, Think Like A Man. The movie takes a look at relationships and the things woman can do to make sure they get the man they want. The film focuses on four men and the woman that are dating or presently pursuing. The men think that being in a relationship or a one night stand, is a no-brain-er, until the woman in their lives get a hold of Steve Harvey’s book Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man. Once the woman have the formula for getting a man to do what they want, it’s an all out war of battle of the sexes. The men find out about the book, and decide to use it’s knowledge to turn the tables on their significant others, and teach them a lesson. This could be a bad or good thing for both parties involved.
It’s been a while since we had a mostly all black cast for a romance comedy, and this movie definitely made up for the time. It’s a smart, sexually charged, hilarious movie that pokes fun at the ups and downs of relationships. The cast is a perfect ensemble of Michael Ealy, Jerry Ferrara, Meagan Good, Regina Hall, Kevin Hart, Taraji P. Henson, Terrence J, Jenifer Lewis, Romany Malco, Gary Owen, Gabrielle Union, La La Anthony, and guest appearances by Steve Harvey playing himself. There are also a couple of other cameos in the movie, and one of the funnier roles goes to Chris Brown, who has a run on joke that is hysterical every time its done throughout the movie. Needless to say Kevin Hart shines brilliantly in this movie, as most of the funniest lines of the movies were his. The cast all seemed like they had a lot of fun while filming this movie, as the friendships seemed so real and genuine.
Will this movie cause conflicts between men and woman? Maybe, maybe not, but it will cause a whole lot of laughter at the theater. I gave this movie 3 stars out of 4. It’s one of the funniest romance comedies that takes a look at real relationships, to come out in a while. The film runs 2 hours long. Its rated PG-13 for sexual content, some crude humor, and brief drug use. It was written by Keith Merryman and David A. Newman, from source material from Steve Harvey’s book “Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man” The film was directed by Tim Story.
