新恋爱宝典:《像男人一样思考》

Move over, The Hunger Games. For the last two weeks, the US box office has welcomed a new winner – Think Like a Man.
《饥饿游戏》请让位。过去两周,美国电影票房排行榜上又迎来一位新赢家:《像男人一样思考》。

The contemporary romantic comedy, which is an adaptation of US comedian/author Steve Harvey’s advice book Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man, depicts the age-old battle of the sexes with some fresh ground rules and good-looking characters.
这部现代爱情喜剧改编自美国喜剧演员兼作家史蒂夫•哈维所著的恋爱宝典《像女人一样行动,像男人一样思考》一书,该片运用新奇的基本法则以及堪称俊男美女的人物角色,讲述了由来已久的两性战争。

“Even in Los Angeles, where the movie is set, you’d be hard-pressed to find so many gorgeous men and women hanging out together,” Michael Phillips, movie critic for the Los Angeles Times, wrote. “Let alone complaining that they can’t find love.”
“即使在故事发生地洛杉矶,你可能都很难找到这么多俊男美女齐聚一堂。”来自《洛杉矶时报》的影评人麦克尔•菲利普斯写道:“更别提他们会抱怨无法找到真爱了。”

All of the characters in the film are bonded by a common interest: Harvey’s bestselling romance guide, Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man.
片中所有角色被同一爱好联系起来,即哈维的畅销恋爱手册:《像女人一样行动,像男人一样思考》。

Single mom Candace falls for a mama’s boy Michael. Mya won’t allow Zeke into her bedroom for 90 days. Kristen wants longtime boyfriend Jeremy to propose. And status conscious Lauren needs to decide if she’s willing to date a broke chef.
单身母亲卡黛丝爱上了“奶嘴男”迈克尔。米娅三个月不让齐克进卧室;克里斯汀希望相恋已久的男友杰瑞米向自己求婚;而看重身份地位的劳伦搞不清自己是否想与一个穷厨师约会。

All of these women turn to Harvey’s book for advice, which works up to the point when the men figure out what they’re up to and start reading the book themselves.
这些女士都求助于哈维的恋爱宝典,最终男士们弄明白了她们的种种行为,自己也开始读起这本书来。

Will the women figure out that the men are creating fake versions of themselves to please their women? Or will the men discover that they actually want to live up to their Harvey-inspired phony personae?
女性们是否会发现,男性总是制造假象来取悦她们?男性们是否会发现,实际上自己想要戴上哈维提到的虚伪假面?

The movie offers a lot of conversations about the mechanics of dating, or the issue of conflict between the genders–the verbal jokes are often unexpected and witty.
影片中加入了很多关于约会技巧或是两性冲突的对话,诙谐风趣的言语幽默常常出人意料,妙趣横生。

And the cast is uniformly engaging and charismatic that they make the whole thing work.
同时,该片的演员阵容全部魅力十足,保证了影片大获成功。

One thing that makes the film seem less smart is that, as the characters in the movie keep talking about Harvey and his book, it may look like an infomercial for the book.
但还是有一点让该片稍显美中不足,主人公们不停地谈论哈维和他的书,好像这给这本书做广告一样。

Still, Think Like a Man winds up being a good story that you can relate to, if you don’t mind enduring that aspect. As Harvey says in his book: “Sometimes, it pays to compromise.”
尽管如此,事实证明《像男人一样思考》是部能让人产生共鸣的好电影,当然前提是你不介意忍受广告这点。正如哈维在自己书中所说:“有时候,我们需要妥协。”
