Secret Crushes: Ladies Of “Think Like A Man Too” Talk Blow-Up Bachelors & Bell Biv DeVoe
In the anticipated sequel to its money-making predecessor, “Think Like A Man Too” is back on June 20 with all of the original cast members.
Kevin Hart, Terrence Jenkins, Regina Hall, Taraji P. Henson, Michael Ealy, Gabrielle Union, Jerry Ferrara, Romany Malco, Gary Owen, Meagan Good, and Jenifer Lewis all return with help from a few others to pick up where the last film left off.
Inspired by Steve Harvey’s New York Times bestselling book “Act Like a Lady, Think Like A Man,” the movie “Think Like A Man Too” is set in Las Vegas for the wedding of characters Candace (Hall) and Michael (Jenkins).

Their respective bachelor and bachelorette parties in Sin City turn wilder than expected and their misadventures find them into some awkward situations that could ultimately cause the wedding not to happen.
After the guys and girls split up, the ladies handcuff Candace to a blow-up doll she called Idris Elba.
During an interview with the cast of “Think Like A Man Too” at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif., AlwaysAList.com asked them who their respective blow-up dolls would be at their bachelorette party.[divider]

Playing with blow-up dolls wasn’t the only fun thing the female cast of “Think Like A Man Too” got to do.
The film also has the women performing a full music video to Bell Biv DeVoe’s ‘Poison.’
It wasn’t the first choice the writers had for the featured song in the film—originally it was supposed to be En Vogue’s ‘My Lovin’ (You’re Never Gonna Get It),’ but the movie’s executive producer Will Packer had a different vision.
“We hope the audience to go into that place of having fun. Tim is the one who wanted to make it a full music video. For me, I felt like En Vogue was a little typical, with this cast and knowing they could do anything, I’d love for them to do something that felt a little counterintuitive. [The director] Tim [Story] said, you know what we’re going to stop the movie and make it a full video moment. So we spent a day shooting that video and the response has been really, really good to it,” Packer told us.

While co-star Henson originally hated the switch, she had a change of heart once they finished shooting the video.
“I was fixated on it. Will, why are you changing it? It’s En Vogue and they’re the sexiest women on the planet. Now you want us to be boys in ‘Poison?’ Then we did it and I was like, ‘Ah yeah, this was great! I’m glad you changed the song,” Henson shared.
You can see the ‘Poison’ video and the rest of “Think Like A Man Too” in theaters on Friday, June 20.
