Steve Harvey teaches Women How to Think Like a Man (2012)
If women knew what men were thinking then I’m sure we wouldn’t have peace. I mean, when Mel Gibson started hearing What Women Want, it nearly drove him crazy. But what if you were a woman who wanted to know how a man thinks? Ask Steve Harvey!
In the 2012 romantic comedy, Think Like a Man, a group of female friends try to turn the tables in their relationships based on Steve Harvey’s book, Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man. However, not everything works out like expected.
The film is plotted into four couples and story lines intertwining into one story. The first couple are Candace and Michael, then there is Jeremy and Kristen, Dominic and Lauren, and Zeke and Mya. The only odd one is Cedric, comically brought to life by Kevin Hart, who is happily divorced.
Candace (Regina Hall) is the single mother who is looking for a man might become the father to her son and Michael (Terence J) could just be the man. However, he still has a strong bond to his mother Loretta.
Jeremy (Jerry Ferrara) and Kristen (Gabriel Union) have been a relationship for too long with no sign of commitment in the near future. After reading Harvey’s book, she might have found a way to make him commit.
Dominic (Michael Ealy) and Lauren (Taraji P. Henson) are from different ends of the spectrum. While he does not have a successful job and constantly dreams of making it big, she is a successful executive who sets her standards too high, making it very difficult to find Mr Right.
Then you have Zeke (Romany Malco) and Mya (Meagan Goode). Zeke is the player and has no intention of a committed relationship. Mya is looking for someone who can commit but unfortunately has a habit of always falling for the jerks, until she starts reading Steve Harvey’s book.
In the mix of oddball couples are Cedric who is happily divorced and the happily married Bennett (Gary Owen). However, they aren’t all too happy. Throw in a few basketball players and Steve Harvey, and you have a recipe for success.
