I won’t go into plot detail or offer spoilers but I will give my quick 34 cents.
At first I was strongly averted to seeing this film because I have not read the book nor do I have any intention to so. The reason is, I don’t believe a woman has to ‘think like a man’ in order to be successful in a relationship. And trust, if women really thought like men, we would ALL be a in big heap of trouble… You really don’t want that It is my opinion that we think we should act exactly as we were created to be and BEHAVE with love.
Now with that said, Think Like A Man was a great film. Each of the central characters were awesome. (Kevin Hart was the comedic sparkler). This movie explored the different issues and mindsets that many male and females have. The storylines and themes were very relatable and interesting. TLAM also showed how game playing is basically played out and that real relationships require compromise, honesty, understanding, patience and lots of forgiveness. The universal message was simply this, love.
The fact is men and women do think differently & thus behave differently. While we may never be able to fully crack the complex codes or understand the different dynamics of the opposite sex… love will always get us a little closer to the answers we seek. When you love, you tend to open yourself up and reveal your true self. When people start to understand the real you, intimacy takes place and makes the way for love. Love is not easy, but it shouldn’t be extra hard either. Love is not a fantasy list or a made up ideal in your head. Love never fails, but we often fail love.
Love is truth, wisdom, and peace. Love is the place where you can lay your head. Love is the place where you are happily & warmly welcomed with your beautiful and not-so-beautiful inner & outer parts. Love is divine.
Think Like a Man is about letting your guard down, and letting love flow in. I will give this one tiny spoiler… At the end of the movie I believe everyone learned what real love is about & it wasn’t exactly how they had pictured it, but in many ways, much better… This is the love I wish for everyone.
