"Think Like A Man" is a new movie based on Steve Harvey’s best-seller, “Act like a Lady, Think Like a Man”. The cast includes talented actors like Michael Ealy, Meagan Good, Kevan Hart, Taraji P. Henson, Regina Hall, Romany Malco and Gabrielle Union and this film contains commentary from author Steve Harvey himself.

The movie revolves around four women, who find solutions to their relationship problems in Steve Harvey’s book. The book provides complete guidance to women about how men think so that they are fully equipped to win the war with men. There are various interesting advice given like the ninety-day rule and five questions to be asked from a potential partner. There are six men in the movie with each categorized as a particular type during the introduction (according to Harvey’s book). These men hang out together and discuss their relationships with each other. Four of them find out that their girlfriends are using Harvey’s book as a guide to win the relationship game and thus a funny battle starts between the two sexes.

"Think Like A Man" is a light comedy flick and there are many funny scenes, especially those of Kevin Hart, who plays Cedric, the storyteller. He is going through divorce and is not very much hopeful about his friends’ affairs. In addition to this, the couple which steals the show is of Romany Malco and Megan Good. Their relationship is quite interesting and a pleasure to watch. There is a nice balance between comedy element and romance in “Think Like A Man”, which makes it highly entertaining. The movie has got positive response from critics and it aims to break box office records.

According to The Washington Post, cast of the movie is appealing. It said, "Forget hackneyed clichés about Players and Dreamers and the scheming women who seek to domesticate them. Focus on the pleasures of watching a group of gifted actors spar and seduce each other with genuine warmth, and 'Think Like a Man' just might go straight to your head.”

Kevin Hart, one of the cast members, is quite optimistic about the movie. He expressed his thoughts to The Root, saying, "This is my first solid, good movie. I've been part of a lot of movies, and I can't say that I have tons of good movies under my belt. I'm about 20 movies in the can, but this is just a good film."
