Today, if you weren’t under a rock, in a coma, or trapped in China, you probably know the film that has been talked about for over a year will finally be hitting theaters….”Think Like a Man”.
First off, I will fully admit that when I heard this film was coming out I rolled my eyes and wanted to throw myself down a flight of stairs. I really wasn’t feeling the premise of the book “Act Like a Lady, Think Like A Man”. Now I had nothing against Steve Harvey, but I just didn’t feel his book furthered the relationship dynamic. And as a film connoisseur I thought to myself… “Damn, here we go with another lazy storyline.” The interesting thing is that the more I saw about the film over the next year I began to think that maybe, just maybe, this film may not be as bad as I originally thought.
I am going to give you Five Reasons (especially for the fellas) you may want to check out “Think Like A Man.”
I was reading an article the other day that the film received a 98% approval rating among test viewers in the screeners for the film. I understand that those screeners can be skewed, but a 98% is still a 98%. Then even my people over at Shadow and Act said the move was a lot better than they thought as well. Now, if any of you know how the people over at Shadow and Act get down you know they keep it thorough and real when it comes to their reviews.
If you look at the previews you will see that Kevin Hart stands out tremendously from all the cast members of “Act Like a Man”. I mean seriously, this dude is mad funny. Everything he touches now is a comedy jewel. If you have ever seen any of his Chocolate Droppa battle raps or his standup you will see why this dude is running and winning with the comedy torch.
Everyone knows my admiration for her (See my proposal on Megan Good). And I know a lot of other brothers are on the same tip, so this point should be self-explanatory.
It’s Just a Romance Comedy
I’m not gonna front – I can come off as a film and music snob (As my Straight Outta Locash Cohort calls me a Negroacci). I’ve begun to appreciate films for what they are, instead of imposing some deep esoteric meaning into it. “Think Like a Man” is just a romantic comedy that’s displaying people of color. There was nothing wrong with “When Harry met Sally”, “He’s Just Not That Into You, and “Friends With Benefits.”
This last point is for the fellas, but ladies you can read long…
Think about this fellas – you get a free, EASY, night out with this film. You have a woman you’re in a relationship with (or trying to get with. WHY NOT take her to see this film. In general, women love romance films (and Michael Ealy) and a woman may want to check this out with a YOU. If any of you fellas are like me, I love to have that feminine energy around, especially if it is a woman you’re feeling.
Do I know how the film is going to be? Nah, I don’t. But I’m sure my reasons at least made you think about seeing “Think Like A Man”.
