Think Like a Man was very bottom heavy. Following a handful of varying personalities playing the dating game, the resolution of the film was packed with sappy quixotic gestures. Most films have one heavily clich├ęd reuniting sequence at the end, this one had five! It was a bit much. Also, the characters were mostly one-dimensional cookie cutter molds, and there were a lot of nonexistent scenes (sequences that were mentioned through dialogue but never shown). However, thanks to its strong comedy (especially Kevin Hart) and highly attractive cast (especially Meagan Good), I left the theater feeling reasonably entertained.

Verdict: Wait for the DVD/Blu-ray
