Ali Davis (Taraji P. Henson) is a successful sports agent who’s constantly boxed out by her male colleagues. When Ali is passed up for a well-deserved promotion, she questions what else she needs to do to succeed in a man’s world... until she gains the ability to hear men’s thoughts! With her newfound power, Ali looks to outsmart her colleagues as she races to sign the next basketball superstar, but the lengths she has to go to will put her relationship with her best friends and a potential new love interest (Aldis Hodge) to the test. WHAT MEN WANT is the latest comedy from director Adam Shankman (HAIRSPRAY) and producers Will Packer and James Lopez (GIRLS TRIP), co-starring Tracy Morgan, Richard Roundtree, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Josh Brener, Tamala Jones, Phoebe Robinson, Max Greenfield, Jason Jones, Brian Bosworth, Chris Witaske and Erykah Badu.

    I hesitated after reading these reviews but eventually decided to rent. It's a great movie I think it's better than the Mel Gibson version and I'm a huge Gibson fan! Movie is hilarious!!

  • Not worth 5.99 to rent

    It was fine. Funny at times but nothing I couldn’t have waited to catch on tv... copycat or any not, it just wasn’t all that great to me. Too much F-this and F-that for my taste, but maybe I’m just a prude. lol But like I said it was not worth it to rent. #buyersremorse

    Don’t waste your time.
  • More feminist nonsense from Hollywood

    By Savergfgjf
    I’m not even going to get into how ridiculous this movie is. I guess if it were made in the 80s it might’ve been cute. But because it was made in this new millennium it’s not the both feminist nonsense. The moral of the story is this woman doesn’t need a man to succeed. So if you’re a feminist you’ll love this movie if you’re a normal human being you will despise it.
  • It was actually really funny

    Honestly I think people were too harsh in the reviews. It actually had a ton of funny moments. Granted if you are a prude this isn't your movie lol But Taraji P Henson and Eryka Badu (Sis) were hilarious. For all those complaining about copycat cat movies. That's just you getting older lol Nothing new under the sun since the film industry has started. There will be tons of remakes and redos until the day you die lol
