movie "Think Like a Man Too"


What happens when couples get together in Las Vegas for the nuptials of one of them? The result is "Think Like a Man, Too" which opened in theaters everywhere Friday, June 20, 2014.

The original cast members of this sequel to "Act Like a Woman, Think Like a Man" are back. They include: Kevin Hart, Michael Ealy, Jerry Ferrara, Meagan Good, Regina Hall, Gabrielle Union, Taraji P. Henson, Gary Owen, Jenifer Lewis, Adam Brody, Terrence Jenkins, Romany Malco, and La La Anthony. Also starring in the movie are Wendy Williams, Dennis Haysbert and Wendi McLendon-Covey.

Directed by Tim Story and based upon the book by Steve Harvey, the movie begins with the couples reuniting in Las Vegas as Michael (Jenkins) and Candace (Hall) prepare to get married. Enter Michael's mother, Loretta, (Lewis) who does not like Candace and has plans of her own for their wedding, including the bachelorette party. With her list of do's and don'ts for the "best man with the plan", Cedric (Hart), there is bound to be trouble as things go awry, especially since he is in Vegas without his wife, Gail (Williams) and is determined to do things his way. Supposedly free of obligations and responsibilities, each couple takes turns at the ups and downs often found within relationships with regard to career, finances, family, communication and temptations.

Zeke (the freak), played by Jenkins and girlfriend Mia (Good) keep running into people from Zeke's past which causes some problems for the twosome. Dominic (Ealey) and Lauren (Henson) must decide where they want their careers to lead. Bennett (Owen) and Tish (McLendon-Covey) are trying to get out of their life's rut and spice up their marriage. Jeremy (Ferrara) and Kristen (Union) are trying to start a family.

Hart is a comedic natural in each scene in which he appears. The movie is filled with moments of laughter, some more funnier than others. The soundtrack from the movie features many familiar rhythm and blues selections that is sure to have the audience singing along.

"Think Like a Man, Too" is the summer must-see film to get moviegoers to laugh and forget about the stresses of day-to-day living. Audience members will be able to easily identify with the issues confronting the characters in the movie. At many points throughout the movie, the laughter sounded more like a roar.

Theatergoer Amber Stackhouse, who waited for the final credits to finish rolling at the end of the movie, said she thought the movie was hilariously funny. She stated it was a fun movie and she plans to go to see it again.

This is the opening weekend for this movie, but it promises to do well. Check out to see where "Think Like a Man, Too" is playing at a theater near you.
