A relationship expert has trouble with his own love life.
" It seeks to rescue contemporary black storytelling from the clutches of men in drag and misogynist moralizing. "
" Drastically overlong, burdened by too many stories about too many couples who are too one-dimensional to be relatable. "
" "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. "
" For what amounts to a feature-length ad, this is surprisingly entertaining. "
" "Think Like a Man" is a surprisingly engaging, entertaining and very funny movie. "
" It wants only to entertain - and it succeeds. "
" Pleasantly sitcom-ish - kind of a knowing, urbane variation on the sort thing that would get more earnest treatment from Tyler Perry. "
" [It's] smart, funny and impossibly good-looking. "
" Though it is funny - at times, laugh-out-loud funny - this comedy is by and for adults. "
" 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. "
" The execution almost overcomes the thinking in "Think Like a Man." Almost. "
" The script ultimately resorts to just counting off comic beats as it creaks through its unfathomable two-hour running time. "
" Despite the crass book promotion, the overlong film is harmless romantic fun that's well played. "
" Yes, this movie urges women to "Think Like a Man." But it thinks like an infomercial - and for a pretty old-fashioned product. "
" 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. "
" Think Like A Man isn't the first movie based on a self-help book, but it may be the best. "
" I'm not going to claim this is a good movie, in some Platonic-ideal way... "
" The more this alleged romantic comedy begs you to adore it, the more you wish you could block its calls. "
" 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 cliches. "
" Even though Think Like a Man espouses something akin to the philosophy in Beyonce's Single Ladies(Put a Ring on It), it makes manipulation more fun than it ought to be. "
