Yes let’s go back to 2014 when everything Kevin Hart was touching turned to gold, and by gold I mean cash and that’s what the movie industry is really about. This is why we have Fast 9 and Fast 10 is scheduled to start filming next year but I digress…Think Like A Man Too was random. Good and bad…here is the review:
Kevin Hart and Gary Owen are hiliarous in this movie and it is painfully obvious that they are the only comedians in this flick. Why? Every scene that Hart shows up, he shows out and leaves you laughing. This is not a corny “family” comedy, it is mature and inappropriate to the point where there is a fight scene in a strip club. Owen is more subtle with his humor but it makes for some fun laughs and interesting points from the white boy in the crew. The sound track was also a highlight but it had some hiccups when there was a remix in the middle of the film.
The third and final act of the film was absolutely terrible. One of the worst comedy-drama endings I’ve ever seen, everything felt rushed to create a “fairy tale” ending and that took away from the vibe of the film. Forced engagements, forced pregnancies and even forced weddings. The first Hangover movie had a more realistic ending to it than T.L.A.M.T !!! On top of all this…why is Lala Anthony in the movie? She wasn’t introduced, wasn’t given any good lines and was randomly tagging along with the women. Why wasn’t there a bigger focus on Micheal’s character? Isn’t he getting married? Why is there a super random Floyd Mayweather and Drake cameo? They brought nothing to the plot and weren’t funny at all. Some of the jokes felt forced and because 90% of this ensemble cast are not comedians…the jokes never landed.
The Final Take
Yes this was a good movie and yes it was funny but it could have been better, it was not where it was supposed to be and felt forced especially near the end. Would I watch it again? Yes but is it a classic…absolutely not.
