Critics 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.

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

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.

"Think Like a Man" is a surprisingly engaging, entertaining and very funny movie.

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

Apr 20, 2012 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

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

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.

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).
