WHAT MEN WANT – Long back there was a film with Mel Gibson called, “What Woman Want”, and it was a huge hit, and this time a new version comes out in reverse that deals with “WHAT MEN WANT”. This time it is from a black female stereotype perspective, played by Taraji P. Henson, who gets offers a drugged up tea by a psychic to save students time, and then hits her head at a club for a bachelor’s party. The next day she can hear what going on in a Man’s mind.
The film exploits and makes everything look crass. As a result the humor gets dull and cheap. Tara who was excellent in films like, “Hidden Figures”, and more recent, “Acrimony”, by Tyler Perry, gives us this time an over the top performance with weird expressions. She plays a sports agent, but appears unconvincing, and loud.
As for the rest of the cast. The less said is better. Also why can’t we understand what Tracy Morgan says? He is always eating lines like “Toast”. The film is predictable. I do not mind vile, and sexual humor, but this ain’t no “Girl’s Trip”. The film gets only 2 stars. Courtesy Awesome TV & BEING FILMY.
