I know that we've both been ghost for a while, we've GOT to fix that. But I couldn't help but write a review on Act Like A Lady Think Like A Man. I HAD to give this movie it's props. I attended a PACKED preview screening last night. My coworker and I were discussing the book before the movie started. She said that she'd read the book and loved it. I said that I wasn't really that interested in reading the book. I just wanted to see the movie. Nothing against Steve Harvey, but I figured that we all know what we do wrong. For some reason, we just can't stop doing it. I don't need to read that I shouldn't overly compromise. But a lot of times, I do. I definitely know that I shouldn't give it up to men who don't deserve it or that men should open doors for me. I know that part. So why should I read a book.
What's funny is that Taraji P. Hensons character thought the same way that I did. But I don't have her characters money :). She was nice and wrong. I wonder if I am too.
The movie showcased so many major african american actors, singers, and athletes, I wanted to scream "Now take that! And give these people more work!" As a side note: Can somebody please tell Ron Artest or Peace to the World or whatever his name is to put on some longer shorts. Please. I'm beggin you.
I don't even need to tell Kevin Hart fans that he was FABULOUS and stole the show. And if you aren't a Kevin Hart fan. Go see someone about your funny bone because this dude is HILARIOUS!
Every woman has been represented by at least one woman in the cast at some point in their lives. Even if it's not right now. And we've met at least one of the men that are depicted. And in hindsight, we thought, man, I wish that I'd done that. In reality, I'd take Michael Ealy please. With a cherry on top. That man is fine. I'm feeling Terrance J as well. I put him on the radar after he was on "The Game." Even Chris Brown got a "whew" from the audience. This movie is great for men and women. We both have tons of eye candy and we can both relate.
The movie was funny, it moved fast, and it was relatable. Even if you didn't read the book. The audience applauded at the end. This movie gets 2 thumbs up from me. Go see it. Pay for it. Don't get it from the bootleg man.
