Blu-ray Review: ‘Think Like a Man’ Offers Zero Insight into Relationships

6 September 2012 6:22 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Steve Harvey seems to be everywhere these days. He’s hosting morning radio programs, headlining “Family Feud,” launching his own daytime talk show and even hawking the latest attractions On Demand. Yet for all of his media exposure, the man has yet to prove that he’s much of an authority on anything. He’s basically an average comic blessed by the kiss of Oprah.

However, since Harvey’s self-help book, “Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man,” was an Oprah-backed bestseller, Harvey now appears to be modeling his revamped persona after Dr. Phil. He offers women tips on how to please men while warning them of which guys to avoid. The film adaptation assembles an ensemble of instantly recognizable stereotypes (“The Mamma’s Boy,” “The Non-Committer,” etc.) who are all laughably obsessed with Harvey’s allegedly inarguable wisdom.

Blu-ray Rating: 1.5/5.0

Screen Gems Will 'Think Like a Man' Some More

28 June 2012 7:06 PM, PDT | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Apparently, Screen Gems hasn't quite spoken its mind yet.

The studio will continue to think deep (-ish) thoughts as it plans on moving forward with a sequel to this year's ensemble relationship drama, "Think Like a Man," according to The Hollywood Reporter.

"Think Like a Man" was based on Steve Harvey's nonfiction bestseller, "Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man," offering a sort of meta-twist on its source material as it concentrates on four couples in which the women apply the advice of Harvey's book to rein in their men.

Original screenwriters Keith Merryman and David A. Newman will return to pen the sequel. It's currently unknown which actors will come aboard for the second go-round, but rising star Kevin Hart, who just scored a part in the "About Last Night" remake, is a likely candidate.

"Think Like a Man" was released on April 20 and went on to »

Film Review: Strong Ensemble Carries Funny ‘Think Like a Man’

20 April 2012 11:02 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Tim Story’s ‘Think Like a Man’ can be a frustrating film but the overall likeability of the cast and the inclusion of some of the often-missing elements from relationship movies (like chemistry and believable friendship dynamics) overcome the movie’s flaws. It’s a movie that could have been better but works on its own terms – it’s funny, clever, and even sweet. It’s not going to change the romantic comedy landscape but so many films in this slumping genre fail spectacularly and no one can say that about “Think Like a Man.”

Rating: 3.5/5.0

Based on Steve Harvey’s hit book “Act Like a Woman, Think Like a Man,” this is yet another film about the battle of the sexes in relationships but it doesn’t minimize or demonize either side like so many of these movies typically do. There have been dozens of male-driven raunchy comedies »

[Review] Think Like a Man

19 April 2012 9:45 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

In 2009, comedian and television personality Steve Harvey gave women the keys to the castle. His best-selling book, Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man, flew off the shelves after day-time talk show appearances allowed him the forum to explain how men simply don’t ‘love’ the same way ladies do. With insight on archetypes like “The Momma’s Boy”, “The Player”, and “The Non-Committer”, Harvey had declared open season for the manipulation of y-chromosomes everywhere on behalf of the fairer sex. Whether you see the work as a legitimate self-help book or comedic tome on relationships, though, I don’t think anyone would have imagined it as a feature length film. But screenwriters Keith Merryman and David A. Newman saw the possibilities and decided to weave a rather generic—albeit very, very funny—romantic comedy around its secrets.
