What Men Want Movie Review

Sharing is caring!

Taraji P. Henson brought it down. It rained some fire and brimstone. What Men Want is a fantasy/comedy-drama with a lot of juice and sauce. There were some little jabs at racism issues, lesson nuggets about workplace politics, take home on love and respect and a very good dose of hot romance.

I totally enjoyed it and I am giving it an 8/10. The rest of the 2 for making me lose my home training laughing like a local girl.

What Men Want was first class comedy wrapped in a box of good acting. The scenes were smoothly transitioned into the story, so sweet.

Unlike so many of the other times, I went to the box office prepared for What Men Want. I had posted about it on my Instagram and 10/10 of people who commented absolutely loved it so why not?

Or you should watch the movie trailer in case you have been in a hole the whole time.

WMW is worth spending your time and money on. Really great movie overall, it made me feel good.

Have you seen Cold Pursuit? And I’m loving The Most Toasted Girl series.
