    What happens in Vegas happens a lot in movies. Think Like a Man Too goes to the same casinos, strip clubs and pleasure pools with a fistful of jokers and an ace up its sleeve, the irrepressible Kevin Hart.

    Think Like a Man Too vastly surpasses the septic “The Hangover Part III.” If Story and company keep thinking like filmmakers, maybe three will be the charm.

    The undeniable star is the diminutive comedian. He’s the glue that holds the movie together when it wanders into the weeds and starts believing it’s a serious meditation on relationships.

    The problem — and it’s an insurmountable, deadly, comedy-killing, consistent problem throughout — is a tired, uninspired, derivative screenplay that brings everyone to Vegas for a wedding and incorporates nearly every weekend-in-Vegas cliche explored in dozens of previous films.

    Think Like a Man Too, the derivative, intermittently amusing follow-up to the surprise hit rom-com from 2012, is so frenetically paced and hysterically pitched that it makes almost no room for simple enjoyment.

    In several instances, you can sense that director Tim Story simply rolled the proverbial ball out to Hart on the court and called the play: Make it funny. Hart scores occasionally, but Think Like a Man Too loses by double digits.

    Although funnier and mercifully shorter than its 2012 battle-of-the-sexes predecessor, this third collaboration between manic comedian Kevin Hart and director Tim Story (hot on the heels of their January hit “Ride Along”) is an exceedingly formulaic and ultimately exhausting thing to experience.

    If you laughed at Tim Story's first "Think," based on Steve Harvey's bestselling advice book for women, you'll probably ride along for this jacked-up, Vegas-set sequel in which dudes and dolls offer sexist approaches to throwing a bachelor party.

    Think Like A Man Too isn’t a movie, or even an arbitrary sequel to an arbitrary adaptation of a novelty book, so much as an extended victory lap from filmmakers and actors convinced that all they have to do is show up to equal or top the first film’s success. The sad thing is that they’re probably right.

    My appreciation for this film comes from knowing what I was looking at, and from not looking for more than what's there. It's a comedy. IMy appreciation for this film comes from knowing what I was looking at, and from not looking for more than what's there. It's a comedy. I don't say "comedy" as a description of the genre to which this film belongs (which is the sad case for a lot of garbage being passed of as comedy). Hart's delivery, and the performance of the [mostly] well-put together cast, produces spontaneous, and sometimes explosive, laughter throughout the film. The film was also enjoyable because I saw myself in its humor, its sensibility, and its perspective. It didn't try too hard to create "types" of black people. These characters could easily be me and my friends doing everything on our cliche list of things we HAVE to do while we're in Vegas [minus the celebrity factor and the public brawl, of course]. What's more, the film was not designed to be a definitive statement on romantic relationships. The [not really] dramatic elements provided continuity, as a sequel, and gave the film just enough substance to distinguish itself in a genre dominated by pointless fluff. It's an excellent date movie that left me with an unexpected feeling of lightheartedness. My take-away's: Create your own adventures. Make life fun and interesting. Pay attention to the needs of others.Be ready to take a stand and commit yourself to something when the time is right. But, you'll enjoy life more, and laugh much louder and longer when you don't try so hard to make things work. Full Review »

With no real creativity this stereotypical Las Vegas-based Rom-Com draws the occasional laugh in an otherwise reserved and rather stale story. With this cast the film had the potential to get a little raunchier than the previous one with the Vegas atmosphere but instead decides to tone back and the quality is greatly affected. Should have stuck to a single movie story. Full Review »
