While I may not be a Steve Harvey fan per se, I am a fan of all things funny, especially when funny comes in the form of a great ensemble cast, well told organically unfolding intertwining stories and characters, and all packaged as a gem of a film shot in, of all places, the Heart of Screenland — Culver City.
Men and woman are basically defined by very distinct character traits. And, of course, depending on what your archetype is can be a help or a hindrance when finding the perfect mate and getting what you want. Dominic, Zeke, Michael, Jeremy and Cedric are lifelong friends. Dominic dreams of owning his own restaurant and leading a quiet and fulfilling life. Jeremy likes things just fine the way they are with Kristen, his girlfriend of nine years. And Cedric. Well, poor Cedric. And Kristen. A leader in the corporate world, she needs no man.
She is completely self sufficient and believes that any man that is not her intellectual, professional and monetary equal is not an asset to her life, but rather a deterrent and thus, not needed. And of course, we quickly see potential pairings amongst our two groups.
We already have Kristen and Jeremy together. But then Zeke and Mya start a little something as do Candace and Michael. So how do you make the two worlds come together and end up in blissful coupledom? But what happens when the guys find out what the girls are up to? As for the casting, everything is covered from soup to nuts and each is as good as the next, starting with Michael Ealy. With his performance as Dominic, Ealy should be firmly solidified as a romantic leading man. I have to admit that even I melted to my knees not only thanks to his eyes ladies, pay attention!!
While ly known primarily for his comedic skills, notable here is that Ealy is able to serve more as the straight man, with that soft romantic edge, while the hilarity ensues around him. Complimenting Ealy and his character of Dominic is Taraji P. Henson, who is perfection as Lauren. No matter what role she tackles, she always has Cast of act like a woman think like a man great confidence and strength to her. Here is no different, but then she balances that confidence with great subtle nuance with her eyes, facial expression and hands, that gives her a comedic touch.
Regina Hall is beyond realistic as single working mom Candace whose top priority is her son. She gives Candace a very thoughtful and practical edge while showing both the sensitivity and frustration of motherhood…and dating. Terrence J is hysterical as he is led by the nose by his mother and plays the part with complete oblivion to the circumstance which only makes him funnier. Although Meagan Good and Romany Malco are my least favorite pairing, they serve the film well as Mya and Zeke with Good bringing an uncomfortable bitchiness to Mya while Malco just makes Zeke annoying at times, albeit funny.
Comfortable, casual, easy breezy. A BFF feeling that is a perfect counter to some of the more intense coupling going on. As for Hart, I could watch him all day. He just gets funnier and funnier and will have you laughing from beginning to end.
You just [got to] play your role. So that when you get to the set, we can have fun. I like everybody to laugh. Written by Keith Merryman and David A. Interestingly, the film never gets bogged down in any race issues and is, in fact, so comfortable in its own skin, only after the fact do you even realize the bulk of the cast is African-American. Yes, some of the situations appear and are to an extent are mechanized contrivances to fuel the relationships and the film, but they never feel that way.
Everything is very natural, unpressured and free flowing. The respective coupling plots are organically intertwined thanks to the male bonding basketball games serving as the cohesive element that provides the summary and discussion of the transpiring events. Similarly, the girls cross paths over wine and lunch and dish their side of the story which superbly showcases the distinctively different points of view and interpretation between the sexes of the situations at hand.
Some may take great offense to its use, however, that said, I do not and its usage feels appropriate in its given context. I spoke at length with Story about the situation and while there is nothing malicious about its use, there is always potential for backlash. So we sometimes mock it…and we say it and use it. My point is, is that we do use it. And no matter the most intelligent Black person, no matter how educated they are, will use it in some way, shape or form. They may just be mocking [but] they use it.
So, I wanted to Cast of act like a woman think like a man the actors in this movie to [do it]. I figure if we made a classy enough movie, it would not have the stigma that normally comes along with it. It gets a lot of attention. But the truth is, we do use it. I wanted this film to be truthful to the way this group of friends would probably deal with the word. Kudos to production deer Chris Cornwell for his location and de choices which are top notch, creating a varied palette of looks for our couples and their domiciles, while keeping everything in a middle class to upper middle class experience, just like the restaurants that are showcased.
Even the Culver City High School gymnasium gets some screen time, along with some very special cameo appearances on its court! Culver City is just beautiful. At the end of the day, we as filmmakers love shooting in old buildings. Even when you look at a place like Rush Street, the ceiling, the beams and all of the stuff, a little bit of that was there before they got there, and they used it. Front of this quarter's edition of ThePenName!!! I am really proud of this feature!
