This Taraji P. Henson Comedy Is the New #6 Movie on Netflix

Netflix just brought back one of our favorite comedies: Think Like a Man.

If the title sounds familiar, it’s probably because the flick originally hit theaters back in 2012. Now that it recently became available to watch on Netflix, the film has already claimed the number six spot on the streaming service’s list of most-watched movies. (It’s currently ranked behind The Power of the Dog, Life, Red Notice, Law Abiding Citizen and Single All the Way.)

So, what is Think Like a Man about? The storyline packs a lot of laughs and some swoon-worthy moments. The plot centers on a group of tight-knit friends—Dominic (Michael Ealy), Jeremy (Jerry Ferrara), Michael (Terrence J) and Zeke (Romany Malco)—who are caught off-guard when they learn that their girlfriends (played by Taraji P. Henson, Regina Hall, Gabrielle Union and Meagan Good) have been taking advice from Steve Harvey’s book, Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man.

So, the men devise a plan that’s designed to turn the tables on the women. Of course, the scheme doesn’t go as planned.

Other cast members include Gary Owen, Wendy Williams, Chris Brown, Keri Hilson, Jenifer Lewis, La La Anthony, Caleel Harris, Morris Chestnut, Arielle Kebbel, Kelly Rowland, Sherri Shepherd, Tika Sumpter, Tony Rock, Luenell, Jessica Camacho, Zach Firtel, Matt Colton, Hayden Fein, Andrew Ward and J. Anthony Brown.

Netflix’s official synopsis reads, “Four women set out to solve their relationship problems using advice from a best-selling book.”

Henson, Hall, Union and Good? Consider us sold.
