Drastically overlong, burdened by too many stories about too many couples who are too one-dimensional to be relatable.
-Eric D. SniderFull Review
"Think Like a Man" is a surprisingly engaging, entertaining and very funny movie.
-Rafer GuzmanFull Review
The more this alleged romantic comedy begs you to adore it, the more you wish you could block its calls.
-Farran Smith NehmeFull Review
The execution almost overcomes the thinking in "Think Like a Man." Almost.
-Tom LongFull Review
It seeks to rescue contemporary black storytelling from the clutches of men in drag and misogynist moralizing.
-Ann HornadayFull Review
Yes, this movie urges women to "Think Like a Man." But it thinks like an infomercial - and for a pretty old-fashioned product.
-Stephen WhittyFull Review
Pleasantly sitcom-ish - kind of a knowing, urbane variation on the sort thing that would get more earnest treatment from Tyler Perry.
-Bob MondelloFull Review
While using the book as a plot catalyst is certainly not a bad approach to constructing a fictional story from the material, the movie is bogged down from the get-go with too many bits of business and a very lengthy setup.
-Jennie PunterFull Review
Though it is funny - at times, laugh-out-loud funny - this comedy is by and for adults.
-Mick LaSalleFull Review
A running joke is that Mr. Harvey has thrown men under the bus by giving away their secrets. But, gents, if they were secrets they wouldn't be cliches.
-Rachel SaltzFull Review
Even though Think Like a Man espouses something akin to the philosophy in Beyonce's Single Ladies(Put a Ring on It), it makes manipulation more fun than it ought to be.
-Claudia PuigFull Review
I'm not going to claim this is a good movie, in some Platonic-ideal way...
-Andrew O'HehirFull Review
The script ultimately resorts to just counting off comic beats as it creaks through its unfathomable two-hour running time.
-Peter HowellFull Review
"Think Like a Man" becomes as tedious as "Valentine's Day," a movie based on a holiday, or "He's Just Not That Into You," a movie based on putdowns disguised as advice.
-Wesley MorrisFull Review
It wants only to entertain - and it succeeds.
-Carrie RickeyFull Review
[It's] smart, funny and impossibly good-looking.
-Elizabeth WeitzmanFull Review
Think Like A Man isn't the first movie based on a self-help book, but it may be the best.
-Connie OgleFull Review
For all the laughs, Harvey's thesis - that women have to expect more from the arrested-development crowd that make up "the men of this generation" - rings true.
-Roger MooreFull Review
An ensemble piece that packs more easy enjoyment than I was expecting or, even now, care to admit to.
-Richard CorlissFull Review
As romantic comedies based on self-help books go, "Think Like a Man" unfolds pleasantly enough; you know exactly where it's going, but that's probably the case for the book as well.
-Moira MacDonaldFull Review
As cheesy and trite as it comes off from its general outline, the particular pleasures it offers are enjoyable and reasonably consistent.
-Glenn KennyFull Review
One of the more unpromising comedies of the year has turned out ... pretty funny.
-Michael PhillipsFull Review
Anyone who reads advice books about romance has one problem to begin with: bad taste in literature.
-Roger EbertFull Review
You've seen "Think Like a Man" before. In fact, you've seen it dozens of times.
-Barbara VanDenburghFull Review
You have to give "Think Like a Man" credit for not only trying to serve as an alternative to Tyler Perry-style date-night fare, but for even going so far as to make fun of those movies for their soapy conventions.
-Christy LemireFull Review
Enduring a day-long session of couples' therapy is more fun (and flies by faster) than this film...
-Melissa AndersonFull Review
An attractive, game cast helps liven up this handsome but overlong urban rom-com.
-Michael RechtshaffenFull Review
The actors make good company.
-Owen GleibermanFull Review
While the result deserves some credit for finding a creative way to bring the book to life, the overlapping storylines simply aren't compelling enough, despite the best efforts of a game and attractive cast.
-Brian LowryFull Review
Think Like a Man tries to tackle more characters than it can handle, making for a mess of a film that ultimately feels like a two-hour advertisement for Steve Harvey's book.
