How many of you went to see the new film by Will Packer film, Think Like a Man? At the risk of giving away the entire story line, I’ll try my best to keep it cute with regular commentary that doesn’t necessarily deal with the plot.
As I’m sure many of you could assume, Kevin Hart provided the comedic relief for the film. There were a few surprises and extra twists, but you’ll have to see the movie to know what they were. What I will do, however, is throw a little shade because I have questions/comments…
-At what point does dental health become a major part of these celebrities lives? Not sure what’s going on Morris Chestnutt’s life but his teeth in this film, Jesus….
-All throughout the film, I patiently waited for Romany Malco (who played Zeke) to bust out in a zebra printed speedo and dance to MC Hammer’s Pumps in a Bump. Never happened, but don’t act like I’m the only one that remembers him in that movie on VH1.
-Love Gabrielle Union but I swear I’ve seen her character, Kristen, somewhere before. Maybe a Deliver Us from Eva/Bring It On mashup? I dunno….
-If there’s ever a reason that someone would NEED to make a movie about my life, I’d hope that they’d ask Jennifer Lewis to be my mother (assuming that my real mother doesn’t fight her for the role…)
-Meagan Good’s body is everything dreams are made of. Very nice!
-Send that same message to Michael Ealy & Terrence J (who surprised the hell out of me with his acting)
After the break, check out an excerpt from the blog, Educated Coon which presents a “but you were thinking it” write up about why she won’t go see the movie and why many of you should probably pass up on it too!
A woman can certainly relate to a man without thinking like one. We should be complimentary pieces, not congruent ones. If a woman is smart, she wouldn’t have to put on her male hat to figure shit out. Only a dumb bitch needs to process shit like a dude so that she as a woman can get the message. What genius hoe thought of reading a Steve Harvey novel to figure out the male species? That “think like a man” shit is just code for “If it’s good for men to do it then it’s good for chicks to do it” and that’s a silly way of looking at the world. If you need Steve Harvey (who is a fucking adulterer, might I add) or a movie to teach you anything, you’re far lost.
Steve Harvey doesn’t know your pussy struggles. This the same nigga who dyes his hair jet black, colors in his hair line and hosts Family Feud. That ain’t balling bruh. Anyone rocking Cab Calloway’s old suits and 4 failed marriages can’t provide me with guidance or hook me up with a soul. The game ain’t never that crucial.
And I’d like to add that just having your father in the home does not mean you will automatically get a lesson on what a man wants. You can have a cable box in your house, but if it isn’t installed then you don’t have cable. It isn’t enough to just be present.
You absolutely MUST go read the FULL blog over at her blog, Educated Coon. She is beyond hilarious! Let me know what you thought!
