Review by Richard Caldwell
The mind of the opposite gender can be a complex space. Especially if you’re viewing it from the outside in. We’ve all wondered what our spouses of other members of the opposite sex were thinking at some point in our lives. What would you do if you actually knew what they were thinking at all times? Well there’s a movie titled “What Men Want” and it perfectly explains that.
Taraji P. Henson stars in this film as a career women. A take no prisoners leaders with a mind focused on her goals at all times. Henson is dominant in her career field. However, her career hits a wall after she’s denied a promotion in her male dominated workplace. This leads her to seeking help with life and career. Before the film takes an interesting twist.
Overall, I really liked this film. It was funny, but honest. I told the story from both the male and female perspectives. Leaving room for many of the films characters to develop and tell their own individual stories. Taraji P. Henson is great as the films lead character. “What Men Want” is a film the entire family can enjoy and also a great romantic comedy for a couples date night.
