All Critics (96) | Top Critics (32)

For what amounts to a feature-length ad, this is surprisingly entertaining.

No great shakes, but it's well-made and often very funny.

Philadelphia Weekly

Think Like a Man tries to tackle more characters than it can handle, making for a mess of a film that ultimately feels like a two-hour advertisement for Steve Harvey's book.

We Got This Covered

The movie does provide plenty to chew on and the respective story arcs are executed well enough to make the overall journey worthwhile.

Full Review… | October 2, 2012

The only thing [Story's] successfully done with this film is publicize Steve Harvey's book, which seems to have been the main goal all along.

Full Review… | September 16, 2012

Despite the best efforts of some solid character actors, a muddled plot means this self-help themed film neither engages nor entertains.

Audience Reviews for Think Like a Man

Not exactly my favorite genre, but I found this movie enjoyable. Kevin Hart was a hoot!..especially in the video segments during the end credits.

An engaging, wildly entertaining and extremely funny movie. A pitch-perfect combination of romantic and buddy comedy. A heart-warming and outrageously funny comedy that delivers big with heart and wonderful performances from its great cast. A well-written and crafted piece of great entertainment made and for adults. Jerry Ferrara, Kevin Hart, Michael Ealy and Terrence J. are a comic dream team that deliver the laughs and the romance. Meagan Good, Gabrielle Union, Regina Hall, and Taraji P. Henson are sexy, smart and a blast.

Based on the book of the same name by Steve Harvey, this movie plays like a long advertisement for that book. At first it seems like every other "African American" romantic comedy, but this has 2 things that most don't usually have. First, Kevin Hart, who is hilarious. He makes every scene he is in better, and is genuinely funnier than most other actors. The second, is a very smart script/story and way of telling the story. It's about four couples and how the women use the book "Act like a Lady but Think like a man" against the men, and how they turn the tables and use it on them. Throughout, is some great, truthful insight by Steve Harvey that helps the movie move along. Nice to see that Tyler Perry isn't the only one who can make movies like this(there are a few Perry jokes through that are pretty funny). Good movies, that couples will enjoy on the couch together(or one on the love seat, and the other on the couch).
