14 and up.

this good charming romantic comedy relationship movie has all the laughs and cute romantic scenes filled with your favorite actors and you got a comedy movie that will enjoy you and your older teens about dating, love, and relationships and parents the only thing you need to worry about in this movie Think Like a Man has some sexual content and some sex talk throughout the movie there's some strong language used and there's nearly constant social drinking such as wine, beer, hard liquor, shots, you name it. Jeremy is known for being a pot head, and he and Kristen smoke marijuana despite the sexual content in this movie the movie does have a positive message about for young women that they don't have to accept a relationship the way it is and have the power to set higher standards for themselves and their partners. But there's no foolproof "formula" for a good relationship, and the advice differs for each couple, leading to so much advice that it could easily overwhelm a teenager new to romantic relationships.

This title has:

Great messages
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
age 14+


This movie was hillarious and one of the best african american movies ive seen yet. It was alot of language but over all was a 5 star movie and number 1 recommend.
