What Men Want (15)

Ali Davis (Taraji P. Henson) is a successful boxing sports agent who is constantly being shunned by her male co-workers. When Ali misses out on a promotion that her macho colleague is awarded instead, she begins to question what more she can do to get ahead in a male-dominated profession.

She meets with a physic (Erykah Badu) who gives her a cannabis-laced tea, which leads to a wild night out that leaves Ali with a nasty head injury. She wakes up in a hospital bed the next day and discovers she has a strange new skill – she can hear men’s inner thoughts…

On a quest to sign the NBA’s next superstar before anyone else, Ali decides to use her secret superpower to outsmart her colleagues and prove it’s not a man’s world after all. But she experiences some difficulties along the way, putting her friendships and a possible new love interest to the test.

What Men Want is a gender-switching reboot of What Women Want, the 2000 comedy starring Mel Gibson. Directed by Adam Shankman (Hairspray), the film stars a host of familiar faces, including Taraji P. Henson (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button), Aldis Hodge (Hidden Figures), Tracy Morgan (30 Rock), and Erykah Badu (The Cider House Rules).
