Comedian Steve Harvey became something of a relationship guru several years ago when he released the book Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man. The book is designed to help women get what they want out of relationships by out-guying guys. Of course, Harvey’s on his third marriage, but whatever. Its lessons are fictionalized in Think Like a Man, which operates kind of like He’s Just Not That Into You: There are attractive actors walking through specific scenarios (e.g. the Momma’s Boy meets the Single Mother), with Harvey’s love lessons guiding the way. Thanks to comic Kevin Hart, Think Like a Man has some genuinely funny moments, and Taraji P. Henson and Regina Hall give the light comedy a little punch. It’s actually a little better than the movies it is supposed to mimic—even with Steve Harvey popping up from time to time.
