The Whole 42 Minutes Endorsement--Think Like a Man

My favorite kind of comedy is unintentional. That's a goddamn fact. There's nothing better to me than bad acting and contrived drama that is so over the top, so ridiculous, that you can't stop laughing. Today, I found myself watching "Think Like a Man," the movie based on a book by Steve Harvey.

Here's the gist of the movie: there's a group of dudes who are rude to their girls, their girls play them, the guys play the girls back, and it works out in the end. Kevin Hart does Kevin Hart things and they reference Steve Harvey's book as "the book" and repeatedly read excerpts from the book. This is the kind of movie that makes you cringe until you watch it. When you watch it, all you get is pure joy. You cannot spend a better two hours than watching the "actors" in this "movie." I spent $5 on the subway in New York because someone was selling the DVD, and I will be at the midnight showing of the sequel (Is Steve gonna write another "book"?)

The King in action

If you want to spend two hours of your life enjoying some god damn art, watch "The Artist." You aren't going to laugh and you are going to have to pay attention. We here at The Whole 42 Minutes endorse Think Like a Man as the official film of the blog. The plot is iffy, the acting is terrible, and the premise is based on a book by a King of Comedy: there is literally nothing more you could ask for in a bad good movie. Thank god for Steve Harvey. Amen.
