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."
