Steve Harvey's "Think Like a Man" Looks Like He's Just Not That Into You on New Years Eve

I always thought everyone, no matter the color of their skin, has a right to make a bad movie. So, naturally, if near colorless romantic comedies like New Years Eve and He's Just Not That Into You can happen, so should Think Like a Man with its mostly black cast.

New York Times bestselling author and entertainer Steve Harvey brings his acclaimed 2009 book "Think Like a Man, Act Like a Lady" onto the big screen. The book, which preaches women should basically play the games men play but in a ladylike manner, was certainly a conversation starter and rivaled the advice from similar relationship books like "He's Just Not That Into You."

Director Tim Story (Fantastic Four, Barbershop) assembles an all-star cast including Meagan Good, Chris Brown (since he clearly won't go away), Kevin Hart, Taraji P Henson, Michael Ealy, Jerry Ferrara, and Gabrielle Union to tell the story of four guys who find out their being "played," so to speak, by their girlfriends who are taking the advice from Harvey's book and try to turn the tables on their ladies.

The trailer seems generic and riddled with cliches. I'm sure it will make a gazillion dollars when it opens at the box office on March 9, 2012 (and for some reason, not on Valentine's Day).

Wouldn't it be great if u could be in a relationship without needing the other person for ANYTHING?
What is a true relationship? Being there for someone, sure. Having someone to rely on, sure.
But money, sex, power are the prerequisites for divorce. Everything has to have a balance.
And I don't care what anyone says, you have to be physically attracted to someone to makeup after an argument.
