What Men Want Movie Review

Though the Feminist movement has made great strides over the decades, there is still much work to be done.

In the new film, What Men Want (a gender flip of the 2000 film What Women Want), Ali Davis (Taraji P. Henson) is a sports agent who is expecting to receive a  promotion. When she does not receive that promotion, which goes to a colleague who is Caucasian and male, she is not pleased to say the least.  During an outing to celebrate a friend’s upcoming wedding, they visit a psychic who gives Ali a questionable tea to drink. This drink allows Ali to hear men’s thoughts. She uses her new skill to advantage, but at what cost?

Yes, one could argue that this film is formulaic. It could also be a bit shorter. But, it speaks to the very timely issue of respect and equal pay within the workplace, a very real situation that women deal with everyday.

Do I recommend it? I could be leaning toward yes.

What Men Want is presently in theaters.

  2. Sounds like a good movie to watch during on a rainy day on tv but not one to pay to see.
