Funny! You might see yourself in this film.

Think Like A Man is the big screen adaption of comedian Steve Harvey’s popular relationship book Act Like A Woman Think Like A Man.  This is a hilariously funny film!  What did you expect?  Kevin Hart is in it.  He keeps you rolling!

Think Like A Man offers many dating tips taught in the book, emphasized by using real life scenarios. Think Like A Man craftily disseminates relationship dos-and-don’ts and often breaks for personal dating tips from Steve Harvey himself.

Think Like A Man focuses on the lives of 5 male friends and 4 women whose personalities personify common character-types depicted in Harvey’s book.  Of the men:  there’s the player; the momma’s boy; the bitter divorcee; the immature guy; and the ambitious, yet unsuccessful, entrepreneur.  Of the women:  he shows the single mother;  the reforming loose-lips;  a Ms. High Standards; and the dissatisfied perpetual girlfriend.

Much like the book, the movie advises women how to handcuff the player;  how to cut the umbilical cord of a momma’s boy’s;  and how to persuade that elusive man-child to commit.

Harvey tells women to assess a man’s masculinity by asking one simple question: what is his long-term and short-term goals.  He also says, to gain respect, women must put game-players on 90-day trial, a sort of sex probation, until they prove worthy of ‘the cookie’.  Great advice.  Wait, let me check my calendar.  Ok, 90 days might be a stretch.  But suggesting he not get ‘the cookie’ too quickly is great advice.

Think Like A Man is a good film with a lot of great tips in it.  It could’ve been stronger with an all Black couples casting, but we understand.  Hollywood is not a strong proponent of Black Male/Female Relationships.   What they call ‘diversity’, Black activists call ‘meddling.’

Mired in hype, we were anxiously awaiting the release of Think Like A Man.  Thankfully, we were not disappointed. Yes, the book is plugged a billion times in this film, but we adore it , especially its ending.  It shows the reward of putting pride aside to let love in. Good movie!
