It's been two years since we last saw the characters of 'Think Like A Man', which was based off of Steve Harvey's book 'Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man'. The first film followed a group of guys and girls falling in love with one another with all of the ups and downs of a relationship. It was funny, charming, and worth the time. Director Tim Story is back in the director's chair again for this second outing. Statistically and historically, if a film on a modest budget does well, more than likely there will be a sequel.'Think Like A Man' was made for under $12 million and ended up grossing almost $100 million at the box office. It seemed like it was the right decision to go ahead with the sequel, but in order to have a sequel, you need to have a thought out story, which unfortunately for this sequel, didn't have. It seemed like 'Think Like A Man Too' was just thrown together over a drunken night and a reason for everyone to get together in Las Vegas to have a fun few weeks. I was so disappointed in this sequel, because I enjoyed the first one so much, but this this sequel was more about Kevin Hart doing his slap-stick routine for 90-minutes than showing an entertaining story.The entire gang is back in again, this time all arriving in Las Vegas for the wedding of Michael (Terrence Jenkins) and Candace (Regina Hall). But the night before the wedding, the guys and girls split off and go all out for their respective bachelor/bachelorette parties, which plays out more like a 'Hangover' film throughout, complete with fights, strip clubs, and jail. You'd think that Jenkins would have a big role here, since this is his wedding in the film, but he receives the least amount of screen time, as I said above, its the Kevin Hart show with him dancing in his underwear, yelling at everyone, and poking fun at his height for the millionth time.Story also decided to put an actual music video in the middle of the film, where the girls sing 'Poison' by Bell Biv Devoe at their bachelorette party, complete with the music video credits and logo in the bottom left hand corner of the screen. There was just no need other than to waste time. But that's what the entire film seemed like, a big waste of time. Sure it was fun to see everyone on screen playing off one another and enjoying themselves, and everyone turns in fun and great performances, but when Story tries to create dramatic tension, it goes nowhere and rushes by to fast as to get to the next scene with Hart making a fool of himself.And of course, just like the first film, we had to check in with every couple for a nice pretty pink bow to wrap up everything nicely. It was all too forced, which made it unfunny. I really wanted to like this sequel, but 'Think Like A Man Too' fell off the cliff and lost the big bet. And yes, Adam Brody is in this film, but he is only in it for maybe less than two minutes and has one or two lines of dialogue. Why give him top billing?
And my apologies to two year olds everywhere for insinuating that they in any way act like the characters in this movie. Most two year olds are far more thoughtful and mature. This is a movie that everyone involved with should be embarrassed.It is not funny at all. There is no dialog, just jokes without punchlines. There is no plot, just random scenes with no direction or sense. Infidelity seems to be the goal of this Las Vegas Bachelor Party. And Kevin Hart's emotion ranges from talking very loud to shouting (neither of which is enjoyable).What was filmed in Vegas should have stayed in Vegas.
"I'm gonna give you the perfect weekend. Nothing is going to go wrong." The gang from the first movie are all back but this time they are in Vegas for the wedding of Michael and Candace. Cedric (Hart) is the best man and wants everything to go perfect so he rents a hotel room, reserves a party bus and has the entire night planned out. Things for the ladies are planned out and everything is starting off smooth and easy. Things quickly start to unravel when the hotel room turns out to be more than expected, two of them get job offers and Cedric starts to lose more money then he wanted to but nothing compares to what Miss Loretta has planned. I have said many times that how much you like a movie depends about 80% on expectations. If you think a movie will be garbage and it wasn't you say you like it. If you are super excited about seeing it and it wasn't as good as you thought you say it wasn't that good. This movie is in the third classification...exactly what you expect. I remember seeing the first one and thought it was pretty funny but didn't need a sequel. I do have to say though that since it was was I expected it wasn't terrible. I may be in the minority in this but I do not think that Kevin Hart is all that funny. He seems to try to hard and just yells a lot. I know a lot of people like him and is the reason that many people will watch this but for me the movie would have been better without him. The movie would be moving along smooth and begin to develop the plot then Kevin Hart would jump in screaming and slow the movie down. Almost all of his scenes seemed to distract from the flow of the movie. If you liked the first one and are a fan of the Why Did I Get Married series than you will most likely like this one. Overall, exactly what I was expecting. I thought it was OK but not really a sequel that was needed and would have been better without Kevin Hart. I give it a B-.
This is a very funny movie. I went and saw it with some family members and we laughed all the way through the movie. It is not a serious movies it's a comedy!!! The people rating this movie low just has no sense of humor. Go see it if you want to watch a great comedy movie. Again this is not a "Black" movie. This is for everyone. Just because a movie has a predominately black cast does not mean it should be put into that category. It is a low key way that we know racism is still out there, even in ways one would not expect. Okay okay I'm off my soap box. Go see this movie!!! Very good!!The cast is well put together and beautiful so some eye candy never hurts lol. It's a tale of what could happen when one has a wedding on las Vegas.
