Extremely vulgar situations, lots of swearing, not funny, and shows women as sluts who will do ANYTHING to get ahead, as well as being sexually insatiable. A poor rip off of the earlier Mel Gibson film What Women Want. We turned it off after a few minutes.

Rate movie a 3/5, although it had funny and laughable moments, remaking a version opposite to that of "what women wants" is a let down. Are all men this egotistical, not so smart, intimidated, and let just say dumb to not having a woman take her place or a seat at the table in the work place. I understand with how society is being seen and the me now moment, all these allegations against women

Overall, would watch it again, maybe ten to twenty years from now. However, it remains objective and or subjective to each person's perspective of whether the point of the movie depicts its intent or to be over shadowed by the jokes, lame jokes, or forced, jokes

Nonetheless, each main character walked away with lessons learned whether it it from the past, present and or how each wants her or his future to played out. I guessed it is the lesson of life and how we do treat others, more so ourselves. Live in truth, do not cut corners, stay humble, honest, and work hard whether or not it is not recognized.

Enjoy! :)

This gender-switch on the 2000 Mel Gibson-Helen Hunt romcom proves to be a cruder version with occasional bright spots mixed in. However, Taraji P. Henson shines as the heroine who is cursed/blessed (however you want to see it) with the power to read the male mind after a bachelorette party. Kudos to the film for not being a direct copy cat of the original source material.

Cannot be categorized in the same class as it's (by name only) counterpart, "What Women Want". It is NOT a cute re-make of the Mel Gibson, Helen Hunt rom-com version. This is the exact opposite!!!
- - - This is an awful movie!! Horribly distasteful, vulgar and appalling!! Not at all funny, terrible acting, and an incredibly awkward and unnecessarily rough/borderline violent sex scene!!

How low can you go. I had no idea this was a professional sports-related (biggest money scam currently running) story. This film is so shallow and trite I got through the 1 hour and 57 minutes in about 33 minutes. It only took me that long because the set-up doesn't come into play until the 26-minute mark. After that, you can figure it out for yourself and skip ahead to the predictable ending.

Cute re-make of the Mel Gibbson What Women Want romcom.

Be forewarned that this movie, altthough with good actors, has a lot of coarse language in every single sentence. I actually found myself wanting to switch it off after five minutes, because the plot was poor. What Women want is a much better movie than this one.
