Think Like A Man
Date Nights

Plot
Four African-American men learn that their partners are hooked on the advice of dating guru Steve Harvey. Their attempts to turn the tables on their other halves quickly go wrong.


Review
Think Like A Man
Usually when rom-coms adapt advice tomes, they take the title and general theme and spin something from that. But Think Like A Man, based on broadcaster/comedian-turned-advice guru Steve Harvey’s book, which advises women on how to handle their male partners’ dating games, serves more as an infomercial. Yes, there are various plots about the usual characters: playa, mama’s boy, commitment-phobe etc., but the text gets almost as many close-ups as the cast. Still, the actors are mostly solid, landing the jokes and making the mushy stuff work for an enjoyable if utterly predictable date-night choice.


Verdict
More certain of its tone than Tyler Perry's melodramatic rom-coms, it's a good-hearted comedy of modern manners that provides a chuckle or two.
