Comedy Brings Steve Harvey Book to Theaters

The Root Recommends: A new romantic comedy based on a book by comedian Steve Harvey.

Screen Gem/Sony Pictures

Tim Story's newest comedic release, Think Like a Man, brings some of black Hollywood's biggest names to the big screen for a laugh-filled and thrilling film that turns on-screen romantic antics into a how-to for women who want a leg up in the dating game.

Think Like a Man brings the Steve Harvey-penned Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man to the silver screen with Oscar-nominated actress Taraji P. Henson, Gabrielle Union, Regina Hll, Michael Ealy, Kevin Hart and more. But Think Like a Man does what a book cannot: It delivers positive relationship advice packaged in humorous yet realistic anecdotes of love and singledom.  

Think Like a Man hits theaters this Friday, April 20. 

Correction: An earlier version of this article referred to Steve Harvey as the director of the film. The director is Tim Story.

Previous recommendation: A New Season for Alvin Ailey II.
