Meagan Good did her share of heating up Las Vegas while filming Think Like a Man Too, the sequel to the hit comedy based on Steve Harvey’s runaway best-selling book, Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man.

“I had a really good time,” says the actress, who was last seen going for laughs opposite Will Ferrell in Anchorman 2. “At first, I was a little nervous because there’s so much energy that only Vegas can give. I was like, ‘Am I going to get any sleep here?’ This city is so full of life and so stunningly beautiful at night. You feel a sense of freedom and reckless abandonment. I wasn’t too wild and crazy though. That’s what my twenties were for.”

Good, however, did have plenty of fun with costars Gabrielle Union, Regina Hall, Kevin Hart and Michael Ealy. She even posted Instagram photos of her kicking back with her gal pals in teeny-weeny bikinis at Caesars Palace. “All of us were just being silly. After filming, we went to the pool and just hung out and did girl stuff.”

The sequel brings the cast to Las Vegas for a wedding, “but you’ll have to see [the movie] to find out who walks down the aisle,” teases Good. Plans for the romantic weekend, however, go awry when their misadventures get them into some compromising situations, which threaten to derail the big event.

“The film does ask the question, ‘Can relationships survive in Vegas?’” Good says with a laugh. She adds that the sequel “is not so much about getting the guy; it’s about what it takes to keep him.”

Good’s previous trip to the Strip was just before her own marriage to DeVon Franklin, two years ago. “I had my bachelorette party performing with the Pussycat Dolls,” she explains, “and I did a pole dance. It was just something I always wanted to try.”

And Good is sure of one thing: She hasn’t made her last trip to Vegas. “It has a way of drawing you back,” she says. “There’s something here for everyone.”
