Weekend Movie Trailers & Reviews: 'Think Like a Man' Testing Wellby: Posted:
It's a battle of the romantic movies at the box office this weekend, as a romantic comedy and a straight-up Nicholas Sparks sob-fest go head-to-head, all while trying to surpass "The Hunger Games." Get your reviews and trailers below.
Rated PG-13, 2 hrs. 03 mins.
Based on the book by Steve Harvey, this rom-com follows the relationships of a group of guys who, upon learning that their female counterparts are learning guy secrets from the book, decide to exact their revenge. The result is a modern war of the sexes with a new set of rules.
The movie is an ensemble piece of sorts, with a cast that includes comedian Kevin Hart, "Entourage" star Jerry Ferrara, Taraji P. Henson, Gabrielle Union, Michael Ealy and others.
Critics are divided on "Think Like a Man," as reviews stand at about 50% on Rotten Tomatoes. Critics seem to agree, though, that the cast lifts this movie higher than where it would otherwise be.
See it if: You want to see Turtle get the girl for once.
Rated PG-13, 1 hr. 41 mins.
When a young Marine (Zac Efron) finds a picture of a beautiful woman (Taylor Schilling) on a tour in Iraq, narrowly avoiding death in the process, he decides he has to go find her. Naturally that's a little weird at first, but as he works for her family's shop, the two grow closer.
Critics have been a bit cruel to "The Lucky One" thus far, as it stands at just 21% on Rotten Tomatoes. You're probably going to get what you expect out of it: a lot of schmaltzy melodrama that's well acted, but maybe a little thin on the actual story. Oh, and lots of clichés.
See it if: You know every line to "The Notebook" and need something new.
