The box office is about to hit an all time low. Steve Harvey's book, Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man, is being turned into a movie and who has been selected to star in this film? None other than American's favorite convicted felon, Chris Brown (because clearly we want men thinking like him). Talk about a blockbuster bust. And his leading lady co-star? Casey Anthony! Just kidding, but seriously how does this guy keep getting work? This Rihanna-beating rapper has gotten so much bad press he should be treated like a leper. But even Justin Bieber is working with him!
This upcoming book-turned-movie will be a comedy that follows four friends who find their love lives turned upside down when their girlfriends start taking advice from Harvey's book. Once the guys figure out what caused their girlfriends to act so differently, the men start to adapt the book's teachings for themselves. Sounds....thrilling. No woman should view that book as anything more than obnoxious and utterly ridiculous. Harvey has said of his book, "Men are not bad people. But women think we're bad because they don't get us at all. We're very, very simple. We all think alike. We all basically think alike when it comes down to commitment, love, relationships, money, sex, whatever it is. We all about basically think the same." You hear that guys? Apparently you're all like Chris Brown. Way to go. Harvey has been married three times by the way, yet he thinks women are the complicated ones.
For those of you who haven't read Harvey's book, here's an excerpt -- "Men aren't in the talking business; we're in the fix-it business. From the moment we come out of the womb, we're taught to protect, profess, and provide. Communicating, nurturing, listening to problems, and trying to understand them without any obligation to fix them is simply not what boys are raised to do." So men are supposed to protect, profess, and provide....I'm still trying to figure out why they cast Brown in this flick (unless they need him to protect no one, profess anger, and provide headaches). Basically, this movie is doomed for failure and adding Brown to the mix is just the cherry on top of an already bad idea.
