Think Like a Man
By Sr. Rose Pacatte, F.S.P.
Comedian Steve Harvey, the current host of the
syndicated television show “Family Feud,” published a best selling book in 2009
“Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man:
What Men Really Think About Love, Relationships, Intimacy, and Commitment.”
This film provides a fictional story that explores the many themes of Harvey’s
book. For example: The Ninety
Day Rule: Ford requires it of its employees. Should you require it of your man?
How to spot a mama's boy and what if anything you can do about it.
goes like this. Four very handsome men and four very beautiful women meet and
begin dating. (One couple has actually been living together for a while now.)
The women, however, have been reading Steve Harvey’s book. A fifth male pal
tells the guys that the women are applying Steve’s methods on their
relationships (“What are your short terms goals?” “What are your long term
goals?”) and that they should buy and read the books, too, so they can turn the
tables on the girls.
Like a Man” is not a great movie but it is very entertaining and shares what
seems like very good advice for couples. The “Ninety Day Rule” is about not
having sex for at least three months into the relationship. While there is a
Christian flavor to the film it seems to accept the premise that sleeping
together before marriage is inevitable, it’s just a matter of when and holding
out to make sure that respect is in place first.
talked to at the theater about the film really enjoyed the movie because of the
mistakes the men make. True, this seems like a list of clichés, but the
ensemble of actors is spot on and they seem to epitomize so many ways people
begin relationships. They joke about gays but this is a very heterosexual
If the film can help couples stop and think before dating or marrying,
it’s a good thing in this anything-goes culture.
