Think Like a Man is a romantic comedy film released in 2012. The movie, which is based on Steve Harvey's 2009 book, Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man, follows the stories of four male friends, each of whom are inexperienced in love or have complicated relationships. These men, collectively known as the "Dreamers," eventually cross paths with four ambitious women, known as the "Sisters," each of whom are looking for a long-term commitment. The couples' relationships are challenged when the women find Harvey's book and use it to manipulate the men into relationships.

The film's main character is Cedric, played by comedian Kevin Hart. Cedric is a successful businessman who uses his wealth to attract women but has never been able to maintain a stable relationship. He is joined by his friends Michael, Dominic, and Zeke, who each have their own unique issues with dating. Michael has been secretly seeing Candace, an ambitious single mother, but hasn't been able to define their relationship. Dominic is still reeling from his divorce and has trouble moving on, while Zeke is a player who feels no pressure to settle down.

On the side of the women, there is Mya, who has strict rules about dating but falls for Zeke. Lauren, who is a successful career woman, is paired with budding chef Dominic. Kristen, who seems to have it all, finds herself attracted to Jeremy, a struggling musician. And finally, Candace is hesitant to pursue a deeper relationship with Michael because she doesn't want to compromise her career or her son.
