Ok, I'll be honest. When I first heard about this sequel, I didn't jump for joy. Let's be honest, people were surprised to see the first film do as well as it did. The first breakout film outran most Tyler Perry films 2:1, according to IMDb. For viewers who enjoyed 2012's Think Like A Man (I sure did), expect to see familiar faces in the sequel. After reading about the story of the second film, I'm still not sure it's enough to pull me into a theater. I'm curious to know if it'll end the way a typical rom-com does. I'll put it out there, the first film's ending was cliche--they all got back together after facing their differences. In this film, their in Las Vegas. Each of the couples are at a different phase than the first movie. So it'll be nice to see how they've progressed.
One of the main things that made the first film work was the chemistry between the characters. I'll look forward to seeing the bromance, as well as seeing the ladies come together. In this film, you'll get to see the ladies interact and group together the same way the men did in the first movie. Gabrielle Union knows creating that special bond, won't be an issue. Her character Kristen, is newly-married in the sequel. Union admits that the chemistry for the women were just as strong off-camera."During the downtime between takes, we don't just scurry off to our trailers. We hang with each other. You're watching friendships blossoming, but it's all happening organically" (BET).
Well here's to hoping it does well. And I'm not the only one. Even Taraji P. Henson, who plays Lauren was apprehensive about the sequel in the beginning. "I was a little nervous, to be honest. I've seen a lot of part twos flop. Sometimes when it's so good, you should leave it alone. But I just feel like this one could possibly be better than the first one " (BET). Well....I'll be the judge of that. Just kidding! But I'm crossing my fingers.
See for yourselves. What do you think? Will Think Like A Man Too, be a success? The sequel hits theaters June 20th. You can check out the trailer below.
