The balance of power in four couples’ relationships is upset when the women (Gabrielle Union, Meagan Good, Regina Hall, Taraji P. Henson) start using the advice in Steve Harvey’s book, Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man, to get more of what they want from their men. When the men (Michael Ealy, Jerry Ferrara, Terrence J, Romany Malco) realize that the women have gotten a hold of their relationship “playbook,” they decide that the best defense is a good offense and come up with a plan to use this information to their advantage. Let the battle of the sexes begin!
Fans of Steve Harvey's wildly popular relationship self-help book, Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man--and even people unfamiliar with the book but interested in love, lust, and related topics--will enjoy the fictionalized film based on it, Think Like a Man. Harvey's book's tenets involve letting a woman's softer side show more, and understanding that men have different sexual needs. The book has been polarizing, but Think Like a Man, the film, gives women more of an even playing field, and handles the topics with a lighter touch. The stars are uniformly excellent and believable, including Gabrielle Union, Taraji P. Henson, Michael Ealy, Chris Brown, and Kevin Hart. They help make up four couples in which the women have decided to take the advice in Harvey's book and use the recommendations to get their men on track. When the men discover this, they in turn try to turn the tables on their women. While one wishes so much manipulation weren't necessary in personal relationships, both Harvey's advice and Think Like a Man's softer point of view have merit. The struggles of the couples are believable, and the viewer secretly hopes there will at least be a few happy endings (it's not a spoiler to say there are). Crisply directed by Tim Story (Barbershop, Fantastic Four), Think Like a Man is a funny, moving chick flick that will appeal to guys too. --A.T. Hurley

After scenes which establish five male stereotypes: Dreamer, Player, Commitment Phobe, Mama's Boy, and Divorcé, we then meet their female counterparts: Career Woman, Twice-burned Single, Wanna-be Wife, Single Mom, and Divorcée. These women discover Mr. Harvey's best seller which gives them insight into how men think. They quickly modify their behavior, which enables them to ensnare their guys. This works fine until the men tumble to the scheme and decide to fight fire with fire.
You should recognize many of these names:
* Steve Harvey ("Madea Goes to Jail") plays himself, a successful self-help author.
* Michael Ealy ("For Colored Girls") is an oft-employed dreamer. He's between jobs right now...
* Taraji P. Henson ("Larry Crowne") is the career woman. She wants a résumé along with long-term goals from any prospective date.
* Romany Malco ("A Little Bit of Heaven") is a smooth operator. It's fun to watch this guy in action.
* Meagan Good ("Jumping the Broom") is ready to try the ninety- day trial period...IF she can last that long!
* Jerry Ferrera ("Entourage") is an overgrown boy. Why give up that old couch and those video games when he has such a nice woman to support him?
* Gabrielle Union ("Good Deeds") has lived with her guy for years; she really wants to get married.
* Terrence Jenkins ("Burlesque") knows his mother will look out for him. She makes sure he doesn't date anyone who might not measure up to HER standards.
* Regina Hall ("Death at a Funeral") already has ONE boy to raise, she doesn't need a second one.
* Kevin Hart ("Exit Strategy") is the divorcé. He knows three rings: An engagement ring, a wedding ring, and suffer ring.
* Wendy Williams (lots of TV) has all three of those rings (see above).
Attractive stars, an intriguing premise and a funny script make for a rollicking PG-13 skirmish in the battle of the sexes. Amazon.com will notify me when it's available on DVD.
Normally I don't like romantic comedies, I like action, adventure, violence, death, destruction and mayhem. However I watched this and it was pretty funny! It was neat to see how men and women act when the other gender isn't around, well at least according to the film-maker this is how they act.
***SPOILERS*** ***SPOILERS*** ***SPOILERS***
The best parts of this movie are Kevin Hart's antics and voice-over work as the narrator.
We have all the different types of men and women, and as usual the men screw up, but what is really good is that one of the women screws up as well. So instead of just the men making mistakes, we see that women make mistakes too, so it's kept in perspective.

So even if you're a guy like me, you'll still enjoy this funny movie that also is kinda touching at the same time.
Check it out!
