The comedy "Think Like A Man" based on a Steve Harvey relationship advice book has received mixed reviews from film critics so far.

The comedy tells the story of four men whose love lives are shaken up after the ladies they are pursuing buy Harvey's book and start taking his advice to heart. When they realize that one of their own betrayed them, they conspire using the book's insider information to teach the women a lesson of their own.

The movie earned 53 percent of positive reviews on the site Metacritic, while it got 50 percent in Rotten Tomatoes and a 59.4 percent on Movie Review Intelligence as of Saturday.

"Think Like a Man" is a surprisingly engaging, entertaining and very funny movie," critic Rafer Guzman for Newsday says.

"Think Like a Man is rowdy and funny and showcases an immensely likable ensemble cast it uses to delineate its war between the sexes," writes Movieline's critic Alison Willmore.

Less positive reviews pointed that the movie is tedious and has many clichés.

"Think Like a Man' becomes as tedious as 'Valentine's Day," a movie based on a holiday, or "He's Just Not That Into You," a movie based on putdowns disguised as advice," said critic Wesley Morris for the Boston Globe.

Film.com critic Eric Snider wrote: "Drastically overlong, burdened by too many stories about too many couples who are too one-dimensional to be relatable.

"A running joke is that Mr. Harvey has thrown men under the bus by giving away their secrets. But, gents, if they were secrets they wouldn't be clichés," New York Times critic Rachel Saltz wrote.

The film is directed by Tim Story, (Fantastic Four) written by Keith Merryman and based on Harvey's book "Act like a Lady, Think Like a Man."
