The best-selling book teaches women how to become better daters and better understand men by following Harvey’s specific rules.

The romantic comedy features a predominantly African-American cast, featuring comedian Kevin Hart, D.C. native Taraji P. Henson, Michael Ealy, Gabrielle Union, Meagan Good and others. Daytime talk show host Wendy Williams and R&B singer Chris Brown also have cameos.
