Think Like a Man (2012)



Critic Consensus: In Think Like a Man, an otherwise standard rom-com is partially elevated by a committed -- and attractive -- cast, resulting in a funny take on modern romance.

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

Drastically overlong, burdened by too many stories about too many couples who are too one-dimensional to be relatable.

The more this alleged romantic comedy begs you to adore it, the more you wish you could block its calls.

The execution almost overcomes the thinking in "Think Like a Man." Almost.

It seeks to rescue contemporary black storytelling from the clutches of men in drag and misogynist moralizing.

Audience Reviews for Think Like a Man


This was another Netflix with my mum choice. Quite enjoyed it. Though there's a lot of couples, it wasn't hoo hard to keep track of which was which as it can be in an ensemble film, and mostly their stories were good. The mothers boy has me cringing, though I like how it turned out. I liked how the female characters were all strong women who knew what they wanted. Apparently there is a part 2, which I will be interested to watch as well.

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.
