'Think like a Man' reviews: It's an 'enjoyable' and 'funny' romantic comedy
The reviews have been mixed but mostly favorable. Here's what different publications are saying about the PG-13 movie.
Associated Press: "What is essentially a shameless and overlong infomercial for Steve Harvey's dating advice book becomes more tolerable and even enjoyable at times with the help of an attractive, likable cast."
CinemaBlend.com: "It's unclear if writers Keith Merryman or David A. Newman simply couldn't think of a more clever way to adapt the material, or if Harvey himself demanded to hang over the moving like some advice-spewing Cheshire Cat, but 'Think Like A Man' quickly becomes exhausting in adhering to its many lessons, all mostly about how women can manipulate the men in their lives to treat them better. "
Chicago Tribune: "The movie may be the very definition of contrivance, coming as it does from the blithely sexist relationship guide 'Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man,' co-written by radio host and comedian Steve Harvey. Considering its source, though, one of the more unpromising comedies of the year has turned out ... pretty funny."
NY Daily News: "If you can look past the annoying quirks, you'll probably have a good time. As Steve says, sometimes, it pays to compromise."
San Francisco Chronicle: "The script...is packed with tricky situations and funny incidents, and, if anything, it's a triumph of economy. It covers four relationships with enough detail to do justice to all of them, without ever giving the sense of a movie going sideways to account for everybody. At every moment, the motion is forward, with the audience wondering what will happen next."
