Friend of mine referred me to this movie to go see with my girl. I saw
the rating on IMDb and was hesitant. However, he insisted, so I went
The movie is funny as hell. It may run for two hours but for me and my girl it passed by quickly; there's always something going on keeping you interested or making you laugh.
I don't need to write a detailed review. If you're hesitant, don't be...it's worth it!
PS I'd really give this movie an 8, but I feel like the current rating is way too low.
Another PS: I'm not black!
Don't be put off by the low ratings. So far the movie has only been
rated 6700 times which isn't really enough for it to shadow the
I suspect there's been a lot of men who aren't into these types of movies that have been forced to watch it with their girlfriends and have then given it low ratings because it definitely leans towards being more of a soppy romantic comedy than a gritty one.
It's definitely not a 'fairy-tale soppy romantic' movie by any means. I would class it as having a realistic amount of soppyness which is what makes it good.
The main cast are pretty diverse in their personalities so most people will be able to relate to someone in the movie, but even if you can't it's got enough comedy/fun in it to keep you entertained.
I think racially this movie is fantastic and it makes a lot of very positive statements. We have a mostly black cast with a very middle class Friends(TV series)'ish feel to them with 2 white guys in the group, 1 of whom has a black girlfriend.
There's a couple of light racially inspired jokes at the expense of one of the white guys in the group which further emphasises that race just isn't and shouldn't be a serious issue in the group.
It's really nice to see a movie like this with a nice intelligent middle-class group of African Americans. Too many movies focus on the gangster element of African American culture these days, so I think this is a really positive and refreshing movie.
I definitely recommend it to everyone except those who are put off by a bit of soppy romance.
I am sure that a lot of folks will think that this is a film to plug Steve Harvey's book, but trust me when I say that the book does not need plugging since it made the best seller list (just wanted to get that off my chest). This is one of those films that I am going to have to watch again because the audience was laughing so loud and long that I fear I missed some of the jokes. That being said .. Kevin Hart (Cedric) is a fool (in a good way). He had me (and the rest of the audience) cracking up. His comic timing and expressions are priceless. The relationship between Dominic (Michael Ealy) and Lauren (Taraji P Henson) was probably the most honest (compared to the others). I like the reference that they made to For Colored Girls (classic). I have always considered Michael Ealy to be very sexy and he did not disappoint in this film (Yum). Michael (Terrance Jenkins) was a true mama's boy almost to the point of being sickening, but Candace (Regina Hall) did what she had to do to rectify that situation. The longtime relationship between Jeremy (Jerry Ferrara) and Kristen (Gabrielle Union) is one that a lot of couples will be able to relate to. Finally, Zeke (Romany Malco) . What can I say, there are a bunch of you out there and I am glad that Mya (Meagan Good) stuck to her guns. The only negative thing that I would say about the film is that I am not sure that Alex (Chris Brown) needed to keep popping in on the scenes. It was kind of redundant since the film already had a "playa". Wendy Williams (Gail) and Sherri Shephard (Vicki) had small roles in the film, but it was good to see the talk show hosts represent. I think that a lot of people may see this film as a "chick flick", but I like to think of it as a great date movie. I think that the implied war of the sexes will appeal to all and if nothing else, Kevin Hart will keep you in stitches. This film is well worth the price of a ticket. Put down the book and get out and see this film because this will be the one that they will be talking about next to the water cooler on Monday. I am giving this film a green light.
I have seen the previews for this movie & thought it was definitely one to pick up at Redbox, not pay $10 to see. Boy was I wrong. I walked out of the pre-screening pleasantly surprised. Not only is it hilarious from beginning to end, the cast is perfect. Kevin Hart made this movie what it is, he was great. The pairing of the couples couldn't have been more believable. It was above and beyond what I expected going into the theater. Not to mention i've never seen an audience so into a movie, nobody had a bad thing to say about it. I am so glad I got to see this early so I can be sure to let everyone know its worth paying to see. I would probably pay full price to see it again to be honest....DON'T MISS THIS ONE!! It's clear to me the people who rated it 3 stars definitely haven't seen this movie.
I watched this movie not expecting anything great, taking in consideration its very low IMDb rating. It completely proved me wrong, and it absolutely made my day. It was funny, charming, and full of really great moments. I loved the fact that the movie was following more than one relationship. It has a great storyline. The characters are great, and all the couples in the movie have great chemistry between them. Even though Cedric was the funniest character in the movie, all the others always had something pretty funny to say. I loved seeing Turtle in something else besides Entourage, he's a really great actor. The soundtrack is also amazing. I would definitely recommend this to all my friends.
This film is much better than it's rating! Obviously it's not jammed
full of amazing special effects and Oscar winning performances but it
doesn't pretend to be either. The film is what it is a light hearted,
feel good, comedy romance.
Strongly recommend watching if you're feel a little bored or want a movie to kill time with some great laughs provided by Kevin Hart.
The story line is a little predictable but no need to worry because the laughs make up for it. All I can say is just watch the film, you won't be disappointed, I'm certain you will be pleasantly surprised.
Great film 8/10 will be looking out for part 2 :)
There are ups and downs to this flick. The story is interesting and
unique. The cast is beautiful, the emotions are spot-on all through the
film. Another plus is the humor. Every character has a situation that
we can all relate to. A momma's boy, a player, a divorcée... All
characters that we have interacted with at one point.
Kevin Hart does an exceptional job and he stands above the rest of the cast. The downer is the last quarter of the movie. It gets too sappy for a dude. The resolutions of the relationships become way too predictable. I mean, it's predictable down to the actual words spoken by the couples.
That aside, this is a movie suitable for a night in with your girl, or a date. It will set your chic in the mood :-) A better than average movie, and still worth your money.
"There is no such thing as a perfect man." Four male friends think they have it made. The all have great girlfriends who make them happy. Four female friends all think that they have the worst relationship. When Steve Harvey writes a book for women about how they should act the tables in the relationship turn. The men think they find an answer, but like most everything we do that backfires. I have to admit that I am not usually a fan of these types of movies. Without sounding racist I am not a fan of the Tyler Perry movies (even though this isn't one) and this just looked way to girly for me. I can't believe how wrong I was. While the movie is formulaic and predictable it is still very funny and really entertaining. There were a few parts in this that I laughed really hard at and when it was over I couldn't believe how much I enjoyed it. While this is, and should be, considered a chick-flick this is one of the "girl movies" that I liked and I think most men will like it too. Don't base you seeing this or not off of past movies like this. This is much better then I expected. Overall, very funny and much better then I expected. I surprisingly give this an A-...I know.
A great ensemble cast of comedic greats, and familiar faces, Think Like
A Man is an entertaining, funny film. Based on a 'self help dating'
book by Comic Steve Harvey, similar to "The Rules" the plot follows the
book's suggestions for women's dating technique in order to get what
they want from the men they date.
It's predictable, of course, but gripping and amusing. All the actors bring something different, similar to Best Man casting. Comedy Golden Boy du jour Kevin Hart was the main overt comedy of the piece - as the downtrodden soon to be divorced from an overbearing wife character. Gorgeous Meagan Good goes up against the "playboy" character as Mya dating Zeke (Romany Malco), Regina Hall (Friends, Bad Boys II) dates "Commitment-phobe" Jeremy (Jerry Ferrara - Entourage's Turtle), Taraji P Henson plays Lauren the rich business woman, falling for jobless eye candy "dreamer" Michael Ealy. Morris Chestnut also puts in an appearance, playing arrogant high flyer. Jenifer Lewis, a stalwart Black American actress, known for her face and her voice in equal measure plays the Mother to the "Mother's boy" character Terence Jenkins. All the pairs of daters are up against/use the book for their own ends with comic effects.
A really fun film. You are quickly involved in the characters - no doubt female watchers would root for the girls, and males the boys - and with the variety of the couples, there is something for everyone to watch, enjoy and relate to. Something for men and women to watch, this isn't like a "chick flick" as it might appear. A very entertaining, laugh out loud watch. I was a little disappointed when it finished.
I have watched and critiqued my fair share of movies and cannot find any reason that this movie is below a 7.5. First, I do not rate comedies above 7.5 because they do not have the "wow" factor that most dramas or suspenseful films have. I will say, Act Like A Woman, Think Like A Man, was 2 hr and 10 minutes long and I wish it were longer; I enjoyed it that much. The cast was an excellent choice and each character played their role perfectly. It was a great combination of comedy, drama, and romance. I would highly recommend seeing this movie. And again, I do not rate comedies above 7.5 so this movie gets my highest rating! If you see it, I promise you won't be disappointed. Shame on STARZ for rating it 2.5 stars. Give it four stars!
