Think Like A Man Review x TammyTalks

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:

The Men:
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. 

The women:
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.

I give the movie an A....go check it out!!!!

The end of the Breakfast Club is near

The Breakfast Club has been on air for 9 years this month, and is going strong with ratings, engagement, and seems to be adding new markets every month...but I think the end is near.
I sound crazy right? I know you're thinking, Tammy how and why would you think that a successful morning show would have it's future in the balance? Well, there are a couple of reasons, let's go through them. I mean this could all be in my head and I’m projecting, or I could have some legitimate points and the near future will tell.
Shock jock radio value going down- The Breakfast Club has been known for it's shock jock style of radio for years. Charlemagne says the most outlandish things in interviews, creates false narratives that he doesn't even agree with for hot takes, and Envy always goes against the grain and disagrees with the masses on any given topic, just to disagree. Podcasting is huge right now, put five people in a room and at least three of them have a podcast; just at the…

15 Black women that need to host SNL

Saturday Night Live has been around for 45 years this fall and has had a series of hosts, of all ethnicities, ages, and entertainment occupations. They've had hosts that are comedians, actors, singers, rappers, and more. Now, while the diversity has been decent...I would love to see more black women as hosts. I've compiled a list of black women I think would do a damn good job at hosting the late night show. Let's get started shall we...
Tracee Ellis Ross - Tracee is a no brainer and should be at the top of everyone's list when thinking of who should host when they are doing the planning over at NBC. Tracee has perfect comedic timing, which we've seen time and time again on Girlfriends, and now on Black-ish we’ve seen her transform into Rainbow Johnson, and also into the other smaller roles they play when they have episodes within their episodes, if that makes sense. Her personality is playful and fun, which is evident through her Instagram. So, she’s topping this l…

Grown-ish is a far cry from A Different World

When it was announced that Black-ish, the hit ABC sitcom about an affluent African American family doing their best to immerse their kids in the their ethnic culture while still enjoying the fruits of their labor, would be getting a spinoff following the oldest daughter, Zoe Johnson, as she headed to college people were somewhat excited. When it was pegged to be an updated and more current version of the hit series A Different World people were more than excited and the show was highly anticipated. We were expecting to see Zoe navigate life as a college freshmen, out of the sheltered and, low key white bread, lifestyle. We were anticipating seeing her explore more of her life after highschool, then it aired…



Now, don’t get me wrong, I like Grown-ish, I think it’s entertaining, but it’s a far cry from A Different World. I didn’t expect the show that be identical to A Different World, mainly since Zoe wasn’t attending an HBCU, so there’s that, but I think the show is missing the mark on …
