Think Like a Man

Rated 2.0

Think Like a Man: Comedian and radio talk show host Steve Harvey wrote the bestselling book Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man: What Men Really Think About Love, Relationships, Intimacy and Commitment in 2009. Even though it’s an advice book, with no plot, somebody has managed to make a movie out of it anyway. The film follows four couples as the women read and take the sage advice of Steve Harvey, who strikes me as an arrogant asshole. So I don’t buy that the characters in this movie would give two shits about what Steve Harvey has to say. Harvey appears occasionally in the film, spewing his nonsense straight at the audience, appearing on talk shows in the film, etc. A winning cast makes things sporadically tolerable, with fun performances from Michael Ealy, Jerry Ferrara and Gabrielle Union. They are good. Steve Harvey the douche can suck it, as can Chris Brown, who appears in a lame cameo.
