Think Like a Man Reviews

June 19, 2012
For what amounts to a feature-length ad, this is surprisingly entertaining.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
April 20, 2012
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.

April 20, 2012
It seeks to rescue contemporary black storytelling from the clutches of men in drag and misogynist moralizing.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
April 20, 2012
Yes, this movie urges women to "Think Like a Man." But it thinks like an infomercial - and for a pretty old-fashioned product.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

Despite the crass book promotion, the overlong film is harmless romantic fun that's well played.

April 20, 2012
Pleasantly sitcom-ish - kind of a knowing, urbane variation on the sort thing that would get more earnest treatment from Tyler Perry.
April 20, 2012
While using the book as a plot catalyst is certainly not a bad approach to constructing a fictional story from the material, the movie is bogged down from the get-go with too many bits of business and a very lengthy setup.

April 20, 2012
Though it is funny - at times, laugh-out-loud funny - this comedy is by and for adults.

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.

Even though Think Like a Man espouses something akin to the philosophy in Beyoncé's Single Ladies(Put a Ring on It), it makes manipulation more fun than it ought to be.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
April 19, 2012
There's not a single conversation that isn't about the mechanics of dating, or some other issue of conflict between the genders, but this cast is so uniformly engaging and charismatic that they make the whole thing work.

I'm not going to claim this is a good movie, in some Platonic-ideal way...
April 19, 2012
The script ultimately resorts to just counting off comic beats as it creaks through its unfathomable two-hour running time.

"Think Like a Man" becomes as tedious as "Valentine's Day," a movie based on a holiday, or "He's Just Not That Into You," a movie based on putdowns disguised as advice.

Think Like A Man isn't the first movie based on a self-help book, but it may be the best.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
April 19, 2012
An ensemble piece that packs more easy enjoyment than I was expecting or, even now, care to admit to.
April 19, 2012
As romantic comedies based on self-help books go, "Think Like a Man" unfolds pleasantly enough; you know exactly where it's going, but that's probably the case for the book as well.

As cheesy and trite as it comes off from its general outline, the particular pleasures it offers are enjoyable and reasonably consistent.

April 19, 2012
One of the more unpromising comedies of the year has turned out ... pretty funny.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
April 19, 2012
The comedy treats Harvey's book as a Rosetta stone that unlocks the mysteries of men's minds and of male-female relationships.

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

You've seen "Think Like a Man" before. In fact, you've seen it dozens of times.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
April 17, 2012
You have to give "Think Like a Man" credit for not only trying to serve as an alternative to Tyler Perry-style date-night fare, but for even going so far as to make fun of those movies for their soapy conventions.

Enduring a day-long session of couples' therapy is more fun (and flies by faster) than this film...
April 12, 2012
An attractive, game cast helps liven up this handsome but overlong urban rom-com.

The actors make good company.

While the result deserves some credit for finding a creative way to bring the book to life, the overlapping storylines simply aren't compelling enough, despite the best efforts of a game and attractive cast.
