Highly Anticipated Sequel THINK LIKE A MAN TOO Hits Theaters Today!
Inspired by Steve Harvey's book 'Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man', highly anticipated sequel 'Think Like a Man Too' opens in theaters today, June 20th. The original cast from the first film reprise their roles, including Michael Ealy, Jerry Ferrara, Meagan Good, and Regina Hall, and Terrance J.
This time around, all the couples gather in Las Vegas for Candace (Regina Hall) and Michael's (Terrance J) wedding. The guys and girls split to enjoy their separate bachelor and Bachelorette parties, but complications ensue as the gang throw themselves into various hilarious hijinks that could potentially ruin the big day.
Let's see what the critics had to say!
Frank Scheck, The Huffington Post: While the film seems poised for major box-office success, it mainly squanders the talents of its talented cast and is bound to test the patience of more discriminating audiences.
Justin Chang, Variety: With its mash-up of Sin City shenanigans and be-good-to-your-woman relationship advice, watching it is like attending a self-help seminar where the keynote speaker keeps trying to give you a lap dance.
Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News: "Think Like a Man Too" consistently lands on the right side of The Comedy aisle, despite more than a few cliches - we never need to see a shot of pals walking in slow-motion to thumping music ever again.
Jordan Hoffman, The Guardian: Put bluntly, Tim Story's film wears you down until you relent and say, yes, I like these people and it's fun to watch them all have such a good time.
Claudia Puig, USA Today: A comedy meant to offer wisdom about gender politics, instead it's as if it opened its mouth to say something clever, and nothing came out.
Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Gate: Throughout we see good ideas with no follow-through, or comic impulses that turn sour upon development.
Jeff Labrecque, Entertainment Weekly: Lacking any real game plan - other than to test each relationship with commonplace conflicts related to parenting, competing careers, and commitment - the film instead doubles-down on Hart, a Tasmanian devil of a performer who can make almost anything funny.
Peter Travers, Rolling Stone: The only reason I'd 'Think' again is the return of Kevin Hart, who mines comic gold out of sloppy seconds.
Ignatiy Vishnevetsky, AV Club: Though barely funny, Think Like a Man Too serves a clear cultural purpose: providing viewers with their semi-annual reminder that we live in a profoundly broken society in which the only movies that can guarantee a budget and substantial distribution with a predominantly black cast are corny ensemble comedies set around weddings.
