The outtakes are funnier than what's in the film.

Adam Shankman's movie isn't as defiantly feminist as it might have been...This might disappoint some observers, but I'd have settled for the film being passably funny, which it sure isn't.

The humour is raunchy slapstick that never feels clever and is rarely funny. It feels like a waste of an idea, especially in a climate when it could have been much more.

What begins as a standard gross-out affair (with a prosthetic #MeToo limb clumsily grafted to the body) ends in a treacly, glib, made-for-TV wasteland.

The overheard men's thoughts are funny at times - a sequence where Ali gatecrashes the weekly poker game is a highlight - but overall it feels a bit artificial and unrealistic.

The messages in this clumsy comedy are not new: men and women might as well be from different planets, and careerism comes at a price. It's not very funny, and only Ms. Henson makes it bearable.

What Men Want will make you ask questions of yourself... Chiefly, why didn't you stay at home?

What Men Want is pure shrug cinema: not bad so much as wispily superfluous, which may not come as a surprise if you can recall the similarly disposable 2000 original.

For all its apparent progressive intentions, this revamp has a similar whiff of the 90s about it.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the first truly terrible film of 2019.

I just wasn't feeling this remake. I wish that Taraji would take more care in choosing her roles.

It's ultimately just another romantic comedy full of blah rom-com tropes.

Impishly wooden and convoluted...a lazy tiptoe through tripe perceptions of what an alpha female perceives as relating to her meathead male colleagues.

It's not that What Men Want isn't enjoyable, it's just that, while you're watching, you get the sense that it could have been so much more. This film is proof that it takes more than genderswapping to make something old new again.

The movie is really all about what she wants, consequences be damned.
February 14, 2019
What Men Want feels stuck in the 2000s due to dull direction and rote plot devices.
February 14, 2019
What Men Want is an idea wasted and an opportunity rejected.
February 14, 2019
It's the kind of picture in which half the cast seem to have come equipped with their own stand-up comedy routines and are determined to deliver them no matter what anyone else is doing.

Better than the original is damning this movie with faint praise, but faint praise is really all it deserves.

This poor movie... and these jokes... they are just picking this poor story apart like buzzards.
