Is this a rom-com or an infomercial?

In Think Like a Man, four gals--including Gabrielle Union and Taraji P. Henson--devour Steve Harvey's 2009 dating guide, Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man--then watch their relationships blossom.

There's something insulting about savvy women going berserk for smug advice like "Men respect standards, so get some!"

Still, the charming ensemble cast--which includes Michael Ealy, Jerry Ferrara, Meagan Good, Regina Hall, and La La Anthony--elevates the hapless material.

Think Like a Man is rated PG-13 and opens in theaters Friday. Us Weekly gives the film 2 out of 4 stars.
