Think Like a Man is rowdy and funny and showcases an immensely likable ensemble cast it uses to delineate its war between the sexes.
Story and collaborators succeed in making a courtship comedy that will entertain women and amuse men.
Though it is funny - at times, laugh-out-loud funny - this comedy is by and for adults.
Think Like a Man is what it is. But its hangout factor is considerable, because the actors' charms are considerable.
It's all about making everybody happy. If that's not grounds for a good relationship, then I don't know what is.
Despite the crass book promotion, the overlong film is harmless romantic fun that's well played.
Think Like a Man is so busy tracking courtship as if it were a science project that the bite-size love stories lack spontaneity.
The director doesn't require - and doesn't really get - distinctive acting from his cast, but every once in a while, the company manages to wink broadly at the film's genre.
Even though Think Like a Man espouses something akin to the philosophy in Beyoncé's Single Ladies(Put a Ring on It), it makes manipulation more fun than it ought to be.
As executed by an appealing ensemble of smooth operators, this adaptation often hits its amusing marks, but with a weighty running time of two hours, it often feels more like a lecture than an intended romp.
If you can look past the annoying quirks, you'll probably have a good time. As Steve says, sometimes, it pays to compromise.
