And i enjoyed it.

The direction is cliché.

And I'm glad I did, I really really enjoyed it!

It really should be a 6-6,2 score, it is an enjoyable and funny movie.

However it's a flawed if intermittently enjoyable comedy.

I enjoyed it.

Like, if you can take the funniest woman on TV, Wendi McLendon-Covey, and make her boring, you really suck as a director and should consider another line of work.

If your planning to see this movie because you enjoyed the Mel Gibson version What Women Want, thinking this will be as enjoyable.

Simple, enjoyable, fun and meaningful.

But if you want to leave your brain at home and just sit back and enjoy a laugh, this is for you.

Heartwarming and predictable .

There are a few scenes that are a little "extra" but overall it was entertaining.

Entertaining Film .

There were little moments that were slightly humorous but mostly forced and predictable vulgar dumb jokes.

"What Men Want" is a slow-moving comedy in its thin plot, static in its cinematic structure, and cliché-ridden in its characters.

The theater was silent during all the jokes and near the end people started getting bored and started to make noise near the back.

I went with a group of ladies for Galentine's day and we all really enjoyed it.

Boring boring boring .

horrible reviews and the complaints of cursing as unnecessary over usage etc. Sounds like it is a waste of money, time and an insult to viewers intelligence!

I only got 25 minutes in and quickly got bored with the swearing and turned off.

This is not gonna be Oscar material, but it makes for a thoroughly enjoyable comedy with plenty of refreshing moments.


Another political correct propaganda where all men are same except women .

We saw it today with my wife, we are a simple midlife couple, and we enjoyed it and we laughed and had a good time.

I caught myself yawning a lot.

I enjoyed it as well as the other people in the theater.

It could've been funny, could've been enjoyable, except there were so many cliches, and a whole slew of "isms" that was dominant throughout.

Will not rank as a classic, I know, but still worth the watch.

It is a waste of time

And the plot pretty much went nowhere.

Funny and entertaining!

The script its so poor, her character is manipulating and the whole film is boring.

Funny and good blend of characters made it quite enjoyable.

What Men Want, is loose, unnecessary foul language, highest level of over acting and way too predictable.

Funny premise and well executed although, like most rom-coms, it's formulaic.

I found it fun and very entertaining.

It doesn't even take itself seriously, it presents a couple of stereotypical characters which try too hard to prove their point and a story that's so predictable and even boring that you struggle to follow.

Worst Movie of 2019 .

Awful, don't waste your time .

Funny Moments, Slow Start .

Don't waste your time and money .

I am someone who is seriously sick and tired of remakes, but this was surprisingly entertaining.

Lots of pointless brief cameos by NBA associated (and Bosworth who must have nothing really important to do in life) for no reason other than the plot line is about signing an NBA prospect.


It's at least entertaining.

Some of the dichotomies of a woman working in a male dominated field were unbelievable and trite.

Although this is a frequently used concept, it was very entertaining in the hands of Taraji.

What Men Want is a nice, safe, enjoyable film.

We found it very entertaining.

are entertaining as Ali's inner circle.

Enjoyable movie.

The Mel Gibson version was at least somewhat entertaining and didn't rely on ridiculous stereotypes to generate laughs or teach lessons.

Needless to mention the ending was pathetically predictable.


I watched the movie and came on IMDB to see post a review and was surprised to see the that reviews seems to be people spewing propaganda vs.

The 2000 version had lovable characters trying to figure each other out, while this one just has that nouveau cliche' of women sitting around hating men.

Don't waste your time or money.

Just an all around enjoyable movie that made the whole theater laugh.

Checking off every cliché in a romantic comedy list.

The film is entertaining inserted with a few lessons.

Fast paced and I laughed out loud quite a few times.

But it was entertaining and a very good example of your typical rom-com.

I was on my phone the entire movie because it's so boring.

Decently entertaining...

I am floored that Tracy has recovered enough from his Walmart truck accident to make a stunning comeback on the big screen.

I enjoyed it a lot and would watch it again!

9/10 - thoroughly enjoyable rom-com hits all the right notes and shows Taraji P.

This "film" has nominated itself to the list of the worst movies in the decade.

I can't believe I watched the whole movie, but I kept waiting for a life lesson thing to happen, or for this comedy to actually be funny, or anything enjoyable at all.

Henson) and Brandon (Josh Brener) are the only characters in this film that's funny, all the other characters are rather under developed and boring.

Yes, it has the predictable boring plot.

But the script was dull with the characters.

Plot is boring and predictable.

Waters 45 min of my time and then for the sake of competing the movie.. I fast forward and it hell of boring 💤.

Junk, don't waste your time .

A fairly entertaining film!

Storyline way too somilar as the orginal bored ne walked out after 20 mins and got refund

The storyline itself is palpable, but the one dimensional characters, and cliche overdone script ruins any chance it may have had.

What a waste of time not even worth a sit through.

It's a shame, the Mel Gibson film was cute and funny, and this was just a waste of Taraji and Tracy Morgan's time.

My husband and I went to see this movie and enjoyed it immensely!

The film was shallow but mildly entertaining.

I understand we all have our own opinions, but this movie is being rated VERY unfairly, especially considering some of the worst movies out there get highly rated.

I usually hate it when people ruin a movie like that but I was just as bored and even looked at my watch which I never do during a movie.

Also, only the "1" ratings wrote reviews; it has received an overall rating of "5" so others obviously have enjoyed it as well.

-Going to compare it to A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT MOVIE ("What women want")NowAfter taking interest in the trailer i googles the film to see if it was worth watching.

I thought it was very entertaining and had a great ending.

Helmed by Adam Shankman of Glee and Hairspray fame, and shot in predictable rom-com fashion with the addition of some extra racy sludge, "Men's" story involves Atlanta sports rep Ali Davis (Taraji P.

But most of the film as slow-moving as it was predictable.

I enjoyed it .

It's not the best movie i've seen but it was very good, very witty and fast paced, never boring or dull like some comedies.


If anyone is considering seeing this entertaining and funny film, ignore the haters and watch it, you will enjoy it, I promise you that!

Phoebe Robinson, also funny, made boring.

That movie is correct and entertaining !

It delivers what it promises, nothing fancy, no plot twists, no unique writing, enjoyable fun acting, just mindless bubbly fun.

Well worth watching.

It's boring, superficial and commercial.

This is a rom-com through and through, and the storyline, lessons learned, and the outcome is predictable from the viewing of the trailer.

If started slow and I was hoping it would improve.

We had to turn this unwatchable garbage off after 15 minutes.

While the movie was predictable from start to finish and it's okay, as long as the story works, and it did here.

Don't waste your time certainly not your money

The story was predictable and the jokes were so bad.

As bad as cgi messes like Captain Marvel turned out, this thing will be tough to dethrone as "worst movie of 2019" that's for sure.

Tasteless and unwatchable .

Stereotype brainwash liberal propaganda that want to force you to be "political correct"...

This one had a different twist to it but I enjoyed it.

Don't waste your money.

Don't waste your time.

Great lead, but boring and dump.

The main character was entertaining and had a smooth character development.

I checked the reviews but there were a ton of 1s (signifying that this is the worst movie ever made...

PROS:Taraji P Henson's Lead PerformancesErykah Badu as Sister Is The Funniest Part Of The MovieSome Of The Mind Reading Joke's Is FunnyIt's A Harmless WatchCONS:Adam Shankman's Bland DirectingMany Missed OpportunitiesIt's Too Safe And Not CleverTracy Morgan

Super boring.

Henson some make this enjoyable then it has any right to be, playing a sports agent who gains the power to hear what men are thinking.

Cute movie very entertaining .

Worth watching to get your own take on it.
