It's always fun when the tables are turned on connivers! Advertised like a Chick Flick, I was delighted to hear the most uproarious laughter was coming from the many men in the audience. This predictable, crowd-pleasing comedy is based on thrice-married Steve Harvey's best-selling book "Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man: What Men Really Think About Love, Relationships, Intimacy and Commitment."

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.

I'll keep this short and sweet.

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.

***END SPOILERS*** ***END SPOILERS*** ***END SPOILERS***

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!

My family found it funny. I was a fan of the book and wanted to see if the movie would hold up. While it's in no way as good, I still enjoyed it a lot. I've read the reviews and really think people are reading too much into the man vs. woman
This movie has great acting, wonderful storyline and was entertaining. I think everyone would enjoy it wether you are in a relationship or not. All in all, a bankable romantic comedy.

review from Metacritic-
Think Like a Man may want to be a self-help catalyst for relational change. Modern relationships are unhealthy, it tells us. It's time to return to a more balanced, even old-fashioned way of looking at things.

I appreciate that. The film suggests that some traditional gender roles have been successful for a reason. It insists that love is more important than sex. And in its own way it encourages men to take more responsibility while asking women to be patient with their guys but insistent that they, as women, deserve to be treated with respect. That they deserve to be pursued.

But while past relational models are templates here for a healthier understanding of relationship, there's a failure to understand what was at the core of those models: an understanding that relationships should echo divine love. The compromise we see is a step in the right direction—if tripped up by sex, drugs and swearing—but it falls short of the selfless giving we're to embody. Staying abstinent for 90 days is arguably better than merely holding out for 90 minutes, but it gets nowhere near the beauty and importance of sex reserved for a committed, lifelong love within the protection of marriage.

I watched this movie and I liked the message it delivers in a way. But they based only on certain type of men and women. I also read the book I stole it from my wife and read it. I didn't agree with every single thing but it does give good pointers somehow. I got the book and movie for my sister that might give her an idea what direction she wants to take on her love life. I do think that the problem is how our brain works men and women are wired different. Women use their brains and hearts more than men do. And men usually don't know the real meaning of love until it hits them on the face. Women in the other hand are born with it. Now this decade women are more out spoken and want equality in this crazy society. Women have come a long way from past decades but they are becoming cold and want to act like men sometimes. Do not loose your essence its a gift, be women but choose wisely, its easy to make the wrong choice and hard to make the right one when you sometimes know its right. Men are becoming less interested in relationships because he can get one almost every night there is not much to conquer and fight for. When you give a man the challenge of trying to conquer a woman he will take it head on. That is the right time and opportunity for woman to show a man what love is, by the time he realizes he has conquered he is already in love. We men are a product of your behavior and you women are a product of our behavior. All that has to be done is change the way how we take things and act on them. And remember dont always go for looks and economic stability take a roll of the dice you might find your prince charming in a frogs body but with your intelligence and love you can turn him into the man of your dreams.Read more ›
