Steve Harvey Tells Us to Act Like Ladies, Think Like Men

Comedian Steve Harvey wrote a book titled Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man, and now Screen Gems wants to make it into a feature film, not unlike another advice book-turned-movie from this year, He's Just Not That Into You. Screen Gems president Clint Culpepper said, "Steve has always provided an easily relatable perspective on men, the way they view women and their seemingly complex but surprisingly simple emotional needs." Also like HJNTIY, this movie will be "an ensemble comedy about romantic relationships."

Harvey wrote the "humorous" book as an advice manual for women to better understand men. According to the first couple pages of Harvey's book, women apparently let men "get away with" things because of this tragic lack of understanding: "(a) too many women are clueless about men, (b) men get away with a whole lot of stuff in relationships because women have never understood how men think, and (c) I’ve got some valuable information to change all of that."

Hey, don't take Buzz's take on the book. It's a great book, and will probably make a great movie! What's up with the negative post, Buzz?

I have to admit, I read the book and it has been really helpful in understanding my boyfriend's behavior. Yeah, Buzz seems annoyed by the tone of the book. Yes, it somewhat generalizes men and women, but I don't see how you can get around that when you're writing a book about how men and women behave differently. I didn't take it personally.
