CHICAGO – Date night at the movies has a new alternative to the summer sci-fi and animation with “Think Like a Man Too.” The sequel to the popular first film has a burst of creative juice from an energetic cast, and dares to do something different with the bachelor party in Las Vegas theme.

HollywoodChicago.com Oscarman rating: 3.5/5.0
Rating: 3.5/5.0

What distinguishes the film is that the women – putting on their own bachelorette event in Las Vegas – in many ways outdo the guys. Part of the is due to the very funny Wendi Covey-McLendon (the grossed out Mom in “Bridesmaids”) who gets her freak on and steals every scene. But also, there is the super-hot personality of Kevin Hart, in collaboration with director Tim Story, who keeps the proceedings loose and entertaining. From the beginning to the end, with Hart and Story the conductors, the guys and gals of “Think Like a Man Too” just want to have fun.

The gang from the first film is back for the Las Vegas wedding of Michael (Terrence Jenkins) and Candace (Regina Hall). Cedric (Kevin Hart) has figured out that he is the best man, and wants to put on a bachelor party that will be Vegas style. The men (Michael Ealy, Jerry Ferrera, Gary Owen, Romany Malco) are treated to a mega-suite in Caesar’s Palace, and the women (Gabrielle Union, Meagan Good, Taraji P. Henson, Wendi-McLendon Covey, La La Anthony) are momentarily derailed in their plans by Candace’s mother Loretta (Jenifer Lewis).

Because Cedric books the suite with money he doesn’t have, part of the hijinks involve the gambling elements of Vegas. Meanwhile the women have come up with a plan to distract Loretta with Uncle Eddie (Dennis Haysbert), and have begun their journey through the Vegas night. Along with way, with the bonding of friends and the impending wedding, lessons are bound to be learned.

“Think Like a Man Too” opens everywhere on June 20th. Featuring Kevin Hart, Regina Hall, Terrence Jenkins, Michael Ealy, Jerry Ferrara, Dennis Haysbert, Taraji P. Henson and Wendi McLendon-Covey. Screenplay by Keith Merryman and David A. Newman, based on the book by Steve Harvey. Directed by Tim Story. Rated “R”

  • Drunk History Seasons 1 & 2, 2014

    CHICAGO – The awesomeness of history loses any of its stuffiness with the incredibly fun, indeed educational show “Drunk History” from Comedy Central, its two seasons now released on DVD. Hosted by its creator Derek Waters, the show is a celebration of various historic figures and their under-appreciated true tales, as expressed by funny people narrating in the universal language of inebriation; their recounts are then reenacted by famous actors working with their given dialogue, dressed with the comic cheapness of a bloated biopic.

  • Happy Christmas

    CHICAGO – “Drinking Buddies” director Joe Swanberg’s latest release of the same star wattage is “Happy Christmas,” an even lower-fi story than the Olivia Wilde beer comedy, steered even more by the casting that it was able to assemble. However, with this movie Swanberg doesn’t so much worry about having a story that could be confused with a more mainstream romantic comedy if it were to have a bigger budget.
