Hundreds of thousands of people flocked to the movies on 4/20 to see Steve Harvey's movie Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man, and yes I was one of those people. Lol. The movie was actually better and funnier than I anticipated. Without giving away too much of the movie, its basically about a group of men and a group of women who are using the tactics in the book "Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man" to keep their mate happy. However, we see along the way that using tactics can backfire on you if you aren't smooth enough. Now lets get to the cast:
Kevin Hart aka Cedric: Kevin Hart is a man that is "happy divorced", it seems as if he and his wife are on the brink of divorce and his commentary about divorce is hilarious throughout the entire movie. He definitely is one of the highlights.
Terrence J aka Michael: Michaelis a mommas boy that isn't able to tear hisself away from his mom, he does any and everything for her and often puts her before the woman in his life. We see how that affects his current relationship.
Michael Ealy aka Dominic: Dominic is a sweet man prep chef that has dreams of being a famous head chef and owning his own restaurant, he finds out that even though being completely honest works for most women it doesn't work for all.
Jerry Ferrara aka Jeremy: Jeremy is a man that is obviously afraid of commitment and still hasnt completely grown up, he takes his relationship for granted, and watches it come crashing down after his longtime girlfriend gets her hands on Steve Harvey's book.
Romany Malco aka Zeke: Zeke is a player who is only interested in getting with women for sex, but when the woman he is pursuing follow the Think Like A Man strategy she read in the book, he finds himself getting frustrated with her rules, until he gets his hands on the book....
Gary Owen aka Bennett: Bennett is a happily married man who is full of side and sarcastic comments about his friends which also brings tons of comic relief.
Taraji Henson aka Lauren: Lauren is a highly successful power women who is determined to find a man that is her equal. After reading Think Like A Man she mends on her standards and begins dating Dominic, until an old flame, who is everything she wants on paper pops back, and she realizes that isnt what she wants all along.
Regina Hall aka Candace: Candace is a divorced single mother who reconnects with Michael from highschool, she uses the Think Like A Man tactics to ween him off of his mother, and finds out he has been lying to her.
Gabrielle Union aka Kristen: Kristen is a relationship with Jeremy that is going no where fast, after getting her hand on Steve's book she springs into action to change her man and her relationship, but once Jeremy gets his hands on the book, she finds out everything was a lie.
Megan Goode aka Mya: Mya is a women scorn, after she keeps getting caught in what she think are meaningful relationship but the men think as only sex, she picks up Steve's book. She follows the book to the tee when meeting Zeke, only to find out that Zeke has been reading the book as well to get what he wants.
The movie includes small roles with Kelly Rowland, Morris Chestnut, Wendy Williams, Chris Brown, Tony Rock, and Lala Anthony. The movie is full of eye candy for both men and women, a sexy cast. All in all its great movie to see with a group of friends or with a date. I definitely want to see it again.
I wont tell my favorite scenes because I dont want to ruin the movie for anyone, but Morris Chestnut was def a highlight for me....and he has hair again!! Lol.
