This movie glorifies irresponsible behavior, not what kids need.

There is abundant adult misbehavior in this movie. Irresponsible sexual behavior is front and center. Irresponsible drinking is also prevalent. Illegal drug use is also shown. (Is there a theme, here?) Strip clubs play a front and center role in this movie that takes place in Las Vegas. The best man for an upcoming wedding sums up the message of this whole movie pretty well; "We're here to make bad decisions and regret them tomorrow." There is nudity in this movie, as well as profanity and constant vulgar language. Almost all of the humor is of a sexual nature. Anyone recommending this movie for children do not love them very much.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (4 ):

The laugh-out-loud moments aren't as plentiful this time around; on the other hand, there's also thankfully less of Steve Harvey and his patronizing relationship advice. There really wasn't any point in revisiting these characters, who were left in pretty satisfying unions at the end of Think Like a Man, but the cast is so charming and their chemistry as friends and lovers so appealing that it's no wonder writer-director Tim Story signed on for a sequel. But while there are obstacles in each couple's way, they're so obviously temporary that there's no real drama in the plot as it unfolds. That means that the comedic tension is placed squarely on Hart's shoulders, leaving him to carry the bulk of the comedy himself.

Still, the addition of Bennett and Tish works well, especially when McLendon-Covey is given a makeover from suburban mommy wear (long skirt, cardigan, comfortable sandals) to killer stilettos, curve-hugging dress, and a brand-new attitude. The Bridesmaids and Reno 911! alum is one of the funniest actresses in Hollywood, so when she joins the other women in a long music-video version of the song "Poison," it's hilarious. For fans of the original, this is mostly more of the same, while those who weren't into the predecessor likely won't find much to connect with here, either, except for the sillier gags, which are amusing, even if they're really just filler for the lack of a substantial plot.
