The scriptwriters appear to be more concerned with packing in 'humorous' quips and jokes than anything else.

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 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.

Despite the best efforts of some solid character actors, a muddled plot means this self-help themed film neither engages nor entertains.
June 24, 2012
Benefits from a likable cast who lend much-needed zing, almost overcoming the fatuousness of the script. Almost.
June 21, 2012
This is not so much a film as an insufferably aggressive exercise in product placement.

Beware beaming self-publicists bearing relationship advice. Those bold, bright one-liners point the way to a life of abject humiliation.
June 20, 2012
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.
May 16, 2012
Retro and formulaic, acting primarily as an informercial promotion for Steve Harvey's self-help book.

If you're a fan of those involved, you might cut it some slack. Or you might wish they were in a better movie.

In Steve Harvey's man's world, the guys face extra anxieties. Not only do they worry their physical prowess might be inadequate, but also, as Cedric announces, the "balance of power has shifted."

Even though Think Like a Man is better than it has any right to be, that's a far cry from saying that the movie is particularly good.

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

'Think Like a Man' is a unique achievement in cinema. It is possibly the first two-hour big screen informercial.

When the movie was over, I remember saying, 'Well, that wasn't terrible.' (I'm sure Screen Gems will be calling any moment to put that pull-quote on their DVD cover box.)
April 20, 2012
The book is plugged so many times visually and verbally that moviegoers might need to check twice to make sure there's not an order form on the back of the ticket stub.
April 20, 2012
Drastically overlong, burdened by too many stories about too many couples who are too one-dimensional to be relatable.
April 20, 2012
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
April 20, 2012
Movies that claim to have answers to life's relationship questions should really offer up those answers.
April 20, 2012
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!
