The Secret Life of Pets

“Think Like a Man Too” is a shameless example of cashing in again. The original 2012 film, “Think Like a Man,” was a surprise hit. This sequel just feels loose and lazy, and it squanders a great-looking, charismatic cast. (But the Bell Biv DeVoe music video they stage is pretty great.)

Director Tim Story’s film is so […]
