Family Feud and Upcoming Daytime Talk Show Host Steve Harvey Has No. 1 Film at The Box Office!



 




The year 2012 is shaping up to be a pretty darn good one for Steve Harvey! The Family Feud and upcoming daytime talk show host can now add to his resume having a movie based on one of his books hit No. 1 at the box office.

Think Like a Man, a rom-com with Harvey's best-selling book Act Like A Lady, Think Like a Man at its center, grossed an estimated $33 million at the box office this weekend. The flick, starring Kevin Hart, Taraji P. Henson, Michael Ealy, Meagan Good, Romany Malco, Gabrielle Union, Jerry Ferrara, Terrence J and Regina Hall, knocked Hollywood blockbuster The Hunger Games out of the top spot.

Harvey, who appears in the film as himself, isn't the only daytime player in Think Like A Man. Former One Life to Live cutie Tika Sumpter has a memorable cameo early in Act One and (SPOILER ALERT) talk show host Wendy Williams also makes a showing. Did you trek out to the theaters to see Think Like A Man this past weekend? If so, what did you think of it? Sound off in the comments!

I saw the movie TWICE this weekend. I throughly enjoyed it! It reminded me of the great "black" movies of the 90s. It was so enjoyable. Funny, smart and just great! I'm going to be honest, I am no fan of the book. I think it's nonsense and was real apprehensive about seeing the movie, but I loved it. It's a must see for everyone!

I'm not making this a racial thing...but geez...I was just glad to see an actual BLACK movie that wasn't centered around religion or incest or men dressed up like women. And while I appreciate EVERY genre of black movies (some I enjoy more than others), I just love a good movie like this that isn't stereotypical.

It reminded me of the '90s "black" movies as well, like The Best Man, The Wood, etc...and they are ALL still my favorites to this day..lol.

ANyway, I didn't go see the movie....LMAO. But I will today Laughing out loud

Excellent movie!

I cannot say enough good things about it. It's one of those rare cases when the film is far superior to the book that inspires it.

@Stoney07: It is okay to say it. I was also glad to see this film and I saw it 3 times this past weekend. I wanted to make sure that they got the numbers they deserve. It was an excellent film.

I was thinking HBO or Showtime time could pick this up and make turn it into an hour long Dramedy series.

Now let's turn Michael Baisden book 'The Maintenance Man' into a film.

And option Carl Weber's 'Married Men', a novel about the mis-adventurous of four brotha's after saying "I Do" for film or cable drama options.

There is a lot of good black material out that can appeal to the masses but just has not been tapped into.

Now if these folks want to pull their resources and put their faith in me Wink. I got the black soap opera for yo' ass! That will rock 'um and sock 'um to the TV every week for another dose of drama.
