The most complicated game one will ever play is the game of love. Men and women both are guilty of making wrong moves. In attempt to claim one's heart and keep it, we make some foolish decisions simply because it seems like the right thing to do.

Think Like a Man screenplays Keith Merryman and David A.Newman brilliantly portray this in their film rendition of Steve Harvey's book Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man.

The characters in this film really do not even matter; while there are a few breakthrough surprising performances; the concept of the movie is classic and fun.


After God created Adam, he went totally left in making Eve. It's as if God said, "Whatever goes through the mind of man, let the woman think the complete opposite." He saw it was good and it was so!

Women are always in pursuit of the thoughts that possess a guy to love her and leave her in the same sentence.

In this film, Mya (played by Meagan Good), Lauren (Taraji P. Henson), Kristen (Gabrielle Union), and Candace (Regina Hall) seek the advice of a man to capture the attention of their leading fellas. Those gentlemen, on the other hand Zeke (Romany Malco), Dominic (Michael Ealy), Jeremy (Jerry Ferrara), and Michael (Terrence J-enkins) use that man's advice to turn the tables but in the end only play themselves.

It goes to show how much better relationships could be if men and women were completely upfront with each other from the start rather than waiting until they've traveled through hell and high water. They reach a breaking point and are forced to share their feelings, but by that point that other person has endured so much they may no longer have the energy to put up with anymore mess.

Of course as with any love story there is a fairy tale ending which makes this romantic comedy a perfect date movie.

Kevin Hart, by far steals the show showcasing his funny-acting combo knock out with an extremely hysterical shocker that comes near the end of the flick.

There are too many cameos in Think Like a Man to count but a few left me surprised. This is not La La Anthony's (NY Knicks' Carmello Anthony's wife) acting debut, but I was amazed by her performance. Those acting classes are definitely serving her justice. I actually believed she was her character Sonia rather than Kim Kardashian's Rodeo Drive shopping buddy.

Another great cameo came from Chris Brown. He has played much larger roles in the past such as Baby in This Christmas and Jesse Attica in Takers but his little part was actually quite hilarious.

This film is a must see if only for a good laugh. The relationships analysis is only a bonus for us hopeless romantics:-)  Anytime I'm planning on heading to the theatre for a second showing, it must be outstanding! One of the funniest movies I've seen in a long time. You will laugh from start to finish!
