If you're not familiar with funnyman Kevin Hart, you truly are missing out on one of the freshest new faces in comedy to come along in years. His standup is reminiscent of classic comedians from the decades ago, but with a modern flare that's all his own. He's starting to pop up in several movies as well, including the new "romantic" comedy THINK LIKE A MAN... though after talking to Hart, that may not be a fair way to refer to it. I'm admittedly not a fan of that style of film, but can honestly say I laughed myself silly and thoroughly enjoyed this one. It's one of those amusing films that both genders can relate to, and even when it's pandering to the audience it never feels overly sappy or disingenuous. It works, and well. I was glad to have an opportunity to chat with Kevin on camera and talk about his work in the film, collaborating with Steve Harvey (another comedian I greatly respect), and his relationship with director Tim Story. It's a fun and laid back interview for a movie that's truly entertaining. Check out the film which is now playing, and tell us your thoughts in the comments below.
