Directed by Tim Story
The opening lines of Kevin Hart’s voiceover wax philosophical on the history of Las Vegas, but they’re less an introduction to Think Like a Man Too so much as a restatement of what is obvious to anyone in the audience: this is Kevin Hart’s movie. The massively popular comedian’s ubiquity is no secret (see: Hart discussing his pro wrestling reawakening with Jon Stewart) and his presence in Tim Story’s 2012 half-adaptation of Steve Harvey’s sex advice book Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man all but guaranteed his return for any sequel.
But, beyond the serious box office legs of the original, why a sequel? Think Like a Man begins with Hart’s same overly-enthusiastic narration, though the original sports a quick-witted dissection of monogamy and »

Happy Fourth of July! To celebrate our favorite summer holiday, we've pulled together some of the best celebrity beach bods of the season.

Audiences didn't have to think very hard about which new movie to see on Friday, as the Kevin Hart comedy "Think Like a Man 2" earned a solid $12.2 million. Clint Eastwood's "Jersey Boys" was singing a much sadder song. Screen Gems' "Think," a sequel to the 2012 hit, is on its way to $32 million or so for the weekend. That puts it just about on the same level as the first film, which earned $33.6 in its opening weekend. "Think 2" also stars Michael Ealy, Jerry Ferrara, Meagan Good, Regina Hall and Gabrielle Union. Another comedy sequel -- "22 Jump Street," starring Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill -- took second place, picking up another $9.4 million. Its domestic total stands at $91.8 million. Yet another sequel -- DreamWorks Animation's "How to Train Your Dragon 2" -- flew at No. 3, scaring up another $7.6 million. So far, the film has earned $77.4 million domestically. It still »

Kevin Hart has struck box office gold once again.
Hart’s “Think Like a Man Too” opened Stateside to $12.2 million on Friday and is on track to gross $34 million this weekend. The studio is projecting a slightly more modest $32-$33 million launch.
The Sony/Screen Gem comedy edged out newcomer “Jersey Boys” and last weekend’s sparring sequels, “22 Jump Street” and “How to Train Your Dragon 2,” for the No. 1 spot. This marks a record-breaking ninth consecutive weekend that a new release has topped the U.S. box office.
If the estimate holds, the sequel will match the original “Think Like a Man” — an adaptation of Steve Harvey’s self-help book “Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man” — which surprised with a $33.6 million bow two years ago. The pic, with an ensemble cast that includes Jerry Ferrara, Gabrielle Union, Michael Ealy and Regina Hall, is on track to repeat »

That’s the same turf occupied two years ago by the original “Think Like a Man,” which opened with $33.6 million. The sequel started solidly with an estimated $12 million Friday, including $1.8 million in Thursday evening shows.
Friday forecasts pegged “Think Like a Man” with another $13 million on Saturday and between $8 million and $9 million Sunday.
Clint Eastwood’s “Jersey Boys,” the weekend’s other opener, appeared to be performing better than expected in recent days with an estimated $6 million on Friday — with trackers expecting an $18 million opening weekend to finish fourth behind the second weekends for “22 Jump Street” and “How to Train Your Dragon 2.”

All week long here on Vulture, we’ve been saluting some of the best and most significant shows, performances, and moments from the past year of television. But not every show can be a banner hit. There are some gems that seem to slip through the cracks, somehow not garnering the attention, adulation, or audience they deserve. Here are the ten best shows you might have missed this season.Being Mary Jane, BETIn the era of prestige drama — and as often as not, "prestige" drama — we sometimes lose sight of the scintillating joys of the prime-time soap. Bmj stars Gabrielle Union as a successful, glamorous news anchor whose personal and family life is a mess; her boyfriend is married, her folks are kind of crummy, her brother's sobriety is in question, etc. If it's occasionally formulaic, so be it. It can also be gutsy and sexy and the right amount »
