Think Like A Man swept the box office opening weekend landing at No. 1 raking in $33 million, beating out the Warner Bros. drama “The Lucky One,” starring Zac Efron, at No. 2 with $22.8 million. The Hunger Games slipped to third place after four weekends at No. 1 with $14.5 million. The Review via MTV.com:
The story line for “Think Like a Man” is nothing groundbreaking. Every rom-com touches on men wanting sex and women wanting a man to sweep them off their feet — with both unsatisfied until everything is tied into a neat bow in the last five minutes.
Based on the Steve Harvey book “Act like a Lady, Think like a Man,” the film follows a group of men who realize their relationships are being infiltrated by Harvey’s self-help book. The women are highlighting away at the pages and using every tactic to get what they want out of their affairs. And while many critics claim the movie looks more like an infomercial, what saves the film is the ensemble cast of attractive, talented actors — Michael Ealy, Meagan Good, Kevin Hart, Taraji P. Henson and Regina Hall, to name a few — who deliver mild lines with wit and perfectly hit the punch lines of every joke.
