Sequels, as "22 Jump Street" joked, are always "the same, only worse."
So any pretense of insight into the battle of the sexes and any real connection to stand-up comic turned self-appointed relationship expert Steve Harvey's book, "Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man," is long forgotten in "Think Like a Man Too," the sequel to the surprise hit.
Kevin Hart has become the break-out star of this ensemble, so "Too" is basically a star vehicle for the Manic Little Man - with Las Vegas as the playground.
This generally mild-mannered comedy sinks or swims on Hart's back. And as one scene makes clear, Little Man can't swim.
Our "Think Like a Man" couples head to Vegas, where Candace (Regina Hall) and Michael (Terrence Jenkins) are getting married.
Cedric (Hart) has mistakenly been named Best Man, and is spending every cent he's got on a bachelor party for the ages. Business executive Lauren (Taraji P. Henson) has set up a bachelorette party for Candace.
Hart's Cedric narrates the tale, which feebly grasps at basketball metaphors to "keep score" as the two ensembles hit Sin City.
None of this is fresh, and Hart's finest moment comes way too early - a no-holds-barred re-creation of Tom Cruise's underwear dance from "Risky Business."
