What Men Want

Critics Consensus

Admittedly uneven but easy to like, What Men Want proves a gender-swapped remake can work -- and the odds are substantially improved with Taraji P. Henson in the lead.

Audience Reviews for What Men Want

  • Jul 17, 2019
    I knew there was a What a Women Want reboot in the works, and my interest was zero. I heard they were flipping the script a la genders, and it was still zee - row. Cast Taraji P. Henson in the lead and I was like: "Fuck... I'm gonna have to watch this now aren't I?" And so I did. But I probably shouldn't have.

    More crude crap passing as comedy.
