From the beginning of mankind

and throughout the world's history,

there have been clearly defined rituals

of manhood.

See, these rituals were definitive

in determining the exact moment

when a boy became a man.

For example, there's the moment

when a boy joins the other men

in his first engagement in battle.

Did you know that they used to have

public circumcisions in front of the village?

Thank God mine didn't go public.

And the most significant moment of all,


That's right, I said it.

In fact, marriage used to be

the ultimate goal of boys and men.

Because in the old days,

it was the only way a guy could get

what he really wanted from a girl.

See now today? Woo!

Things have changed, people.

I mean, men, we don't have to work

as hard to get what we want.

We got the Internet, for God's sake.

I can be whatever I want on the Internet.

Today, men have the home court advantage,

which has left you ladies

with several different types of men.

I mean, I don't even know where to start.

You got the Player.

Hi, Zekey.

You sexted?

Those aren't mine, a**hole.

You sure that's not...

Wait a minute, I'm not done.

You got the Mama's Boy.

Happy, Valentine's Day, sweetie.

And you, too, Mom.

Thank you, sweetie.

You know, I think I'm just gonna

leave you two alone.

Wait, babe, where are you going?

It's okay, Michael. I don't want to intrude.

- I'll call you?

- Or not.

Poor little thing.

She's blonde.

You got the Dreamer. The Dreamer's funny.

So I quit my job.


I wanna be a chef.

You wanted to be a paramedic,

you wanted to be a PR agent, and now

you wanna be a chef?

Baby, it's my dream.

Really, Dominic? Because I wanted

to be a ballerina and Janet Jackson.

When I was seven.

Do you know what I wanna be now?


Your ex.

And last but not least,

you got the Non-Committer. Pass the ball!

This one is from me.

All right, baby.

- All right! Now it's a party. Drum roll.

- Okay, big guy.

Oh, my God. I will, I will, I will, yes!

You will what?


that I will always treasure.

You the man, boy.

Told you.

- Yo!

- You need a beer?

Now I'm not saying there aren't

a lot of good men out there.

Take, for instance, the Happily Married Man.

Which brings us to my personal favorite,

you got the Happier Divorced Guy.

Look at that smile.

What I'm saying is,

the balance of power has shifted.

But, Zeke, those aren't

my only issues with Gail,

it's the nagging, it's the yelling,

it's the crazy mood swings.

I mean, you're not gonna talk to me

no kind of way. I'm a grown-ass man.

- Grown-ass man.

- You know me, Dom, I'm grown.

Them weren't the only problems you

was having with Gail, though, right?

- Yo, Zeke, do not get that man started.

- I'm asking a question!

No, let's get me started up.

Turn the key! Say it, get it out!

Rumor has it that Gail

was whooping that ass.

What's the first word you said?

- I think it was "whooping that ass."

- No, first word you said was "rumor."

'Cause that's what it was, Zeke. It's a rumor.

Ced, you walked in the gym the other day

with a little nugget in the side of your eye.

I fell down the steps, Mike! Okay?

I got steps, my steps got a slope in them.

You ever walked down a slope

with dress shoes on?

Wait, so, she kicked your ass,

then you fell down the steps?

- See, now it makes perfect sense.

- That's real funny.

Look at the white man trying to make light

of the relationship issues

- of a brother.

- It's not like that.

No, it is like that.

Let me tell you something, J.

Black people marched and died for the right

to fight and treat each other like sh*t.
