This movie is based off of Steve Harvey's book "Act Like a Lady,Think Like a Man". I heard Kevin Hart talk about this movie before, maybe a year ago, and now it's finally ready for it's release. I'm glad Kevin Hart will be in the movie because he's hilarious. The rest of the cast is made up of a good bunch: Gabrielle Union, Taraji P. Henson, Michael Ealy and Morris Chestnut. I'm glad to see some of my favorite black actors coming together on a project.
Although the one casting decision I'm sure others were skeptical about is Chris Brown. He will play the lead role as a relationship expert. Really? Past events, don't allow my imagination to put that image in my head. I've never taken him seriously as an actor, so I'm not sure if he'll give the strongest performance. I'm just hoping he doesn't ruin the movie for me.
The story takes me back to the 90's flick, Two Can Play That Game starring Vivica A. Fox, which was a great movie also with Morris Chestnut and Gabrielle Union. While it's sequel wasn't as successful, I see this movie following in suit with the original. The difference being, the script will be completely original, according to Gabrielle Union in a Sister2Sister article. Also the fact that there will be some interracial loving going. With a great cast, and the fact that it's based off of a Steve Harvey bestseller, which doesn't just focus on one race, I think this is going to be a good one. I'm hoping it doesn't turn stereotypical, aimed at a target audience that's just overdone. I'm crossing my fingers.
Think Like A Man hits theaters April 20th. Check out the trailer below. What do you think?
