MPAA Rating: 106        Length: PG-13 minutes

Age Appropriate For: 14+. The sexual content here is pervasive, even though it’s never explicit: there’s lot of discussions about sex, implied sex scenes, lots of ogling of women in revealing bikinis at a topless pool party (you don’t see anyone topless, but you do see a lot of half-bare butts), and the suggestion that having sex will make women happier; also accidental drug use; cursing and one use of the n-word; and familial drama in the form of troublesome in-laws.

‘Think Like a Man Too’ follows the same romantic relationships as its 2012 predecessor, with couples bickering over getting married and having a baby. Although sporadically funny, the film’s spastic pacing and massive tonal shifts continuously undermine it.

By Roxana Hadadi

“Think Like a Man Too,” the second film based off Steve Harvey’s self-help book “Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man,” has Harvey’s fingerprints all over it in its proliferation of traditional gender roles and implicit patriarchy. Aren’t marriage and babies the only things that make women happy? Of course! There’s other stuff going on here, too—low-level Las Vegas hijinks, mainly—but it’s surprising how conservative its thinking is.
