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 »

Henson, Meagan Good, Terrence J, Romany Malco, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Gary Owen, Gabrielle Union, La La Anthony. In the highly anticipated sequel, which was inspired by Steve Harvey’s best-selling book ‘Act Like a Lady, Think Like A Man,’ all the couples are back for a wedding in Las Vegas. Tim Story renews his collaboration with many of his darling actors, without failing to carry with him the coarse and tawdry humour of his previous flick, ‘Ride Along.’ The film – which opens 2014’s American Black Film Festival in New York – [ Read More ]

“Think Like a Man Too,” raised the roof at multiplexes this weekend, carousing its way to $30 million domestically, according to studio estimates.
The Sony Pictures and Screen Gems sequel premiered on 2,225 screens and cost a modest $24 million to produce. It was able to capitalize on star Kevin Hart’s rising profile as it held off challenges from “22 Jump Street” and “How to Train Your Dragon 2.”
“It’s not bad being number one,” said Rory Bruer, Sony Pictures president of worldwide distribution. “The girls versus the guys element and getting the perspective of both sexes is something that’s always appealing to folks.”
However, it could not match the $33.6 million debut of the first film in the series in what was altogether a ho-hum weekend at the U.S. box office.
Overall, the box office hit roughly $151 million, down 37.4% from the same period a year ago, when “World War Z »

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 »

At this point there’s no denying the ascension of Kevin Hart as the premier comic working today. The man is omnipresent – even before going to see a film he’s not in, there he is – in a pre-show commercial – endorsing some Vitamin Water product. Just this year – he’s already had two unexpected hits: the buddy cop comedy Ride Along and the Mamet-Lowe/Moore redux About Last Night. Think Like a Man Too further cements Hart’s rise to comedic dominance. In the (first) Think Like a Man, Hart was a supporting character, peppering in brief appearances throughout, commenting on the various character’s travails; here – in the sequel – he is very much the focus, most of the conflict in the film stemming from his antics. Typically in a comedy, there is one ‘straight man’ asked to react indignantly to all the eccentric characters surrounding him (think Bradley Cooper »

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.”

Chicago – Date night at the movies has a new alternative to the summer sci-fi and animation with “Think Like a Man Too.” The sequel to the popular first film has a burst of creative juice from an energetic cast, and dares to do something different with the bachelor party in Las Vegas theme.
What distinguishes the film is that the women – putting on their own bachelorette event in Las Vegas – in many ways outdo the guys. Part of the is due to the very funny Wendi Covey-McLendon (the grossed out Mom in “Bridesmaids”) who gets her freak on and steals every scene. But also, there is the super-hot personality of Kevin Hart, in collaboration with director Tim Story, who keeps the proceedings loose and entertaining. From the beginning to the end, with Hart and Story the conductors, the guys and gals of “Think Like a Man Too” just want to have fun. »

Directed by: Tim Story
Running Time: 1 hr 46 mins
Release Date: June 20, 2014
Plot: The men and women from Think Like a Man migrate their battle of the sexes to Las Vegas.
Who’S It For? Will you watch Kevin Hart in anything? And (in Katherine Hahn’s voice) I mean, a-ny-thin-g?
Steve Harvey does not guest appear as his own televangelist in Think Like a Man Too, the sequel based off the movie based off his offensively titled book “Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man” (I assume no one wanted to name the sequel to Think Like a Man “Act Like a Lady”). That’s a plus. He only appears in the form of a smiling face on a “Family Feud” slot machine, »

2012’s Think Like A Man was an adaptation of comedian Steve Harvey’s New York Times best-selling book Act Like A Lady, Think Like a Man, where audiences met a group of close friends whose romantic entanglements with the women they pursued made for plenty of sharp comedy and heartfelt reflection once Harvey’s generous relationship advice was added to the mix.
In the end, the non-committer proposed, the dreamer won the heart of the independent woman, the player settled down with the 90-day-rule stickler, the mama’s boy broke free of his mother’s grip and vowed to put the cute single mom first, and the happily divorced guy went back to his wife.
In Think Like A Man Too, the couples are back, along with new stories and funny storylines.

Chicago – Sequels just need a dose of energy and creativity, and then they work. The cast of “Think Like a Man Too” – including Kevin Hart, Regina Hall and Terrence Jenkins – provide that energy, as the gang from the first film heads to Las Vegas for a competing bachelor and bachelorette parties. The audience wins that contest.
Kevin Hart is arguably one of the hottest performers of the moment. Fresh from his record breaking stand-up film of last year, he hit a trifecta in late 2013 and early 2014 with the films “Grudge Match,” “Ride Along” and “About Last Night.” His quick wit and energy also has the character of appreciation, for the collaborator and director Tim Story, and his co-stars Terrence Jenkins and Regina Hall.

The influence of “The Hangover” looms like a toxic cloud over “Think Like a Man Too,” a raucous mess of a Vegas-set sequel that brings new meaning to the term “sloppy seconds.” Although funnier and mercifully shorter than its 2012 battle-of-the-sexes predecessor, this third collaboration between manic comedian Kevin Hart and director Tim Story (hot on the heels of their January hit “Ride Along”) is an exceedingly formulaic and ultimately exhausting thing to experience; with its mash-up of Sin City shenanigans and be-good-to-your-woman relationship advice, watching it is like attending a self-help seminar where the keynote speaker keeps trying to give you a lap dance. Still, that’s not a recipe likely to turn off target audiences for this Screen Gems release, which is on track to land in the vicinity of the first pic’s $91 million domestic haul.
