One of my 100 In a Year tasks is to watch a movie I’ve never seen for each letter of the alphabet. Thankfully, I’ve already seen enough movies that begin with the letter T that I don’t have to watch “Think Like a Man”. I’m kind of bummed out about it though because the cast is great and I’m sure they’re going to be a pleasure to watch. I just don’t like the message that the book (or movie) sends to impressionable women out there.
I guess I’m speaking on something I don’t know about because I have refused to read the book. Why would I want to think like a man? I’m a woman! It seems like a lot of guys that I follow on Twitter have been (for lack of a better word) denouncing the movie citing that they all want women who think like women. They also have mentioned that all men think differently, so trying to study them and think the way they do is going to leave a lot of women upset and alone.
Think Like a Man will be in theaters April 20, 2012.
Will you be watching?
