While “Think Like A Man” doesn’t usually fall into our regular wheelhouse, we’ll likely track this down for one reason — another chance to see Kevin Hart and Romany Malco trade words. The comic duo last featured together in “The 40-Year-Old Virgin” in a sequence that still remains highly quoted around the Playlist office. So here’s hoping they are least bring some of that same energy to their scenes here.
An adaptation of Steve Harvey‘s self-help book, “Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man,” the film finds Hart playing a relationship expert who has no problems handing out advice, but can’t keep his own love life in order. Tim Story (“Fantastic Four,” “Barbershop“) directs from a script by Keith Merryman and David A. Newman (who both wrote “Friends With Benefits“), and the rest of the cast isn’t too shabby either, featuring Taraji P. Henson, Gabrielle Union, Michael Ealy, J.B. Smoove, Regina Hall, Morris Chestnut, Turtle from “Entourage” and (regrettably) Chris Brown.
The soundtrack coming along with the film is a pretty solid mix of (mostly) current R&B and Soul artists, which should fit the bill if you’re into that kind of thing. Jennifer Hudson teams with Ne-Yo and Rick Ross to drop the title track, while John Legend, Kelly Rowland (also in the film), Keri Hilson and RaVaughn help keep things smooth. Kicking in some old school flavor are Luther Vandross and Earth, Wind & Fire.
“Think Like A Man” hits theaters on April 20th with the soundtrack landing on April 10th. Full tracklist below. [VibeVixen]
