From page A7 | June 18, 2014 |

FAIRFIELD — Steve Harvey hits the big screen again this week.

Sort of.

“Think Like a Man Too,” the sequel to “Think Like a Man,” which was released in 2012, hits the big screen Friday and features Adam Brody, Michael Ealy, Jerry Ferrara, Meagan Good, Regina Hall and Dennis Haysbert.

The movie is based on Harvey’s book, “Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man.”

The couples are back for a wedding in Las Vegas but plans run off kilter for the romantic weekend when their adventures produce some compromising positions that pose a threat to the wedding.

This comedy romance is rated PG-13.

Clint Eastwood directs “Jersey Boys,” a movie version of the stage musical with the same name. It tells the story of the rock group The Four Seasons, formed by four young men from the wrong side of the tracks. John Lloyd Young stars as Frankie Valli. Erich Bergen, Michael Lomenda, Vincent Piazza and Christopher Walken also star.

The movie is rated  R.

A bevy of popular names stars in “Third Person,” rated R, about love, trust and betrayal. Mila Kunis, Olivia Wilde, Adrien Brody, James Franco, Kim Basinger and Maria Bello star in this romantic drama.

Opening with limited engagements are:

“Venus in Fur,” a romantic drama based on a Tony award-winning play by David Ives. The movie is directed by Roman Polanski and stars Emmanuelle Seigner and Mathieu Amalric. It’s not rated.

“Coherence,” about friends at a dinner party on the night of an astronomic event. They experience some strange things that call into question reality as they know it. It’s also not rated.

“A Summer’s Tale,” a romance that’s the third in the “Tales of the Four Seasons.” It follows Gaspard, a man who said that nothing ever happens in his life. Melvil Poupaud stars as Gaspard. It’s rated G.

“Exhibition,” which focuses on a middle-age couple struggling to say good-bye to their house after they reach the decision to sell it. It is not rated.
