Think Like a Man Reviews

We Got This Covered

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.

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

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.

The National

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

Benefits from a likable cast who lend much-needed zing, almost overcoming the fatuousness of the script. Almost.

As comfort-blanket romcoms go, it is the rare one that will not bring you out in a rash.

Yes, it's a large slice of cheese, but an entertaining one at that.

This is not so much a film as an insufferably aggressive exercise in product placement.

What Culture

As far as adaptations of self-help books go, this one - which bites back at the source material - is one of the recent best.

Beware beaming self-publicists bearing relationship advice. Those bold, bright one-liners point the way to a life of abject humiliation.

Black - or indeed any audience - gagging from Tyler Perry's sugary depiction of Afro-American middle classes will welcome director Tim Story's wittier approach to the shifting sands of courtship.

The script presents a reductive view of relationships that borders on insulting and it's hard to get emotionally involved in any of the storylines as a result.

Empire Magazine

More certain of its tone than Tyler Perry's melodramatic rom-coms, it's a good-hearted comedy of modern manners that provides a chuckle or two.

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

Any film that gives Curb Your Enthusiasm's J.B. Smoove little more than a walk-on needs more thought.

Spectrum (St. George, Utah)

This sharp, multi-racial adult relationship comedy has enough witty zingers and uses a zesty cast to overcome some structural issues and a too-long running time.

Retro and formulaic, acting primarily as an informercial promotion for Steve Harvey's self-help book.

Yeah, the movie is cliched, and you can pretty much guess what's going to happen. But the enjoyment of this film is watching the characters hang out and interact with each other.
