Hi, I'm Siobhan. I love hot dogs, long walks on the beach, picnics... Sorry this isn't my EHarmony account... I'm originally from New Jersey, but I've lived in Texas for 6 years. Reading, writing, listening to music, acting and stand up comedy are just some of my hobbies. Like all fat kids, cake is my love, but I've been having an ongoing affair with ice cream.
I'm so grateful to be the new movie critic for The Edge because it's my favorite radio station and I'm glad to be apart of something this amazing.
Some of my favorites movies are Pulp Fiction, Inglorious Basterds, Atonement, Pride and Prejudice, Little Miss Sunshine and Hamlet
I'm a huge Kevin Hart fan but to be perfectly honest, I thought this movie was gonna suck. Only, me being a lover of all black films, I just had to go and see for myself. I'm so glad I was wrong. If you are having problems in your relationship, I don't recommend taking your boyfriend to see this movie because you would literally give away your game plan and you'd have to abort the mission of making your significant other "the best he can be". No this is a movie where all the women will watch it and then all the men will secretly watch, just to find out what people are whispering about. However I'm just in it for the laughs because I've already seen Two Can Play That Game (which is awesome, watch it) and not to lie, it's basically the same thing. Only people are reading this time. I mean, come on, mind games don't call for something super original, nonetheless the jokes in this movie kept things from being stagnant and stale.
This movie is about a group of guy friends who are about to have their worlds rocked by one little book. Appearing on an Opera-like talk show was Steve Harvey, discussing his new book: "Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man". He explains that men and women have changed in many ways expect in the game of love. Harvey emphases that in order to get a man/ keep a man/ to get him to do whatever the heck you want, you have to get into his head. He divides the book into classes of men: "The Dreamer" (Michael Ealy), "The Player" (Romany Malco), "The Non-Commitment" (Jerry Ferrara), and "The Mama's Boy" (Terrence Jenkins). The women soon realize that they have the power in the relationship and when they start to take that power, they think everything is great. Until it's not. When the men discover that their women have been tricking them into changing their ways, they decide to retaliate by using Steve's words against them. But like all cliche movies, soon one by one the men get caught and their women get pissed off. In the war of love, will there ever be a peaceful moment?!
I liked that it was compared to a war the whole time because it's true, love is a battlefield. The fact that Kevin Hart was narrating the whole time was funny too because he just had this, "I'm newly divorced, I want to see some ass!" attitude about his friends' romantic dilemmas. Hands down, he was my favorite, especially when it came to the part of who is his ex-wife (which you'll have to see for yourself because I'm keeping my lips sealed). For the most part, it's cliche, but cute. Definitely try for an earlier time so you can get a cheaper ticket.
