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.

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

The cheap production values, excessive length and lackadaisically paced editing ... kill what could have been a sharp comedy.

You've seen "Think Like a Man" before. In fact, you've seen it dozens of times.

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

No amount of charm floating to the top can hide the bland, uninspired underpinnings.

Unfortunately, like so many women have prophesied regarding the weaker gender's lack of commitment, there's just not enough follow through.

These actors all deserve better than being forced to spout dubious relationship advice from an egomaniac.

Here is an idea that somehow came to mind... buy the book and skip the movie.

Anyone who reads advice books about romance has one problem to begin with: bad taste in literature.

Hollywood needs a non-fiction self-help book about how to say no to pitches for adaptations of non-fiction, self-help books. Charismatic actors sadly stuck in an omnibus of a rom-com, aka an omni-rom-com

A romantic comedy that represents a clash between a very likeable cast and a rather unappealing storyline.

It quickly becomes exhausting in adhering to its many lessons, all mostly about how women can manipulate the men in their lives to treat them better.

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

Movies that claim to have answers to life's relationship questions should really offer up those answers.

The product placement for Harvey's book is a blatant disregard for the audience's intelligence. I felt like I was watching a 3am "ShamWow" infomercial!

Harvey's a terrific comedian and hosts the heck out of Family Feud, but when it comes to matters of the heart, the man has perverted passion into a moviegoing event that induces conversion disorder.

The script ultimately resorts to just counting off comic beats as it creaks through its unfathomable two-hour running time.

A running joke is that Mr. Harvey has thrown men under the bus by giving away their secrets. But, gents, if they were secrets they wouldn't be clichés.
