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.

However it's a flawed if intermittently enjoyable comedy.

Needless to mention the ending was pathetically predictable.

It's boring, superficial and commercial.

I found it fun and very entertaining.

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

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

Worst Movie of 2019 .

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

And the plot pretty much went nowhere.

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.

Funny and good blend of characters made it quite enjoyable.

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

I enjoyed it a lot and would watch it again!

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

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

Worth watching to get your own take on it.

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

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

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

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

Funny and entertaining!

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

We found it very entertaining.

The story was predictable and the jokes were so bad.

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.

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

Funny Moments, Slow Start .

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

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

Enjoyable movie.

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

Great lead, but boring and dump.

Don't waste your time.


I caught myself yawning a lot.

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

Super boring.

Heartwarming and predictable .


Don't waste your money.

Plot is boring and predictable.

Its stupid, its not fun, the jokes are not funny, and a waste of everyones time.

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

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

Awful, don't waste your time .

The film was shallow but mildly entertaining.

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

Checking off every cliché in a romantic comedy list.

Junk, don't waste your time .

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

All the people involved in making this movie should gather in an empty hall and commit mass suicide.

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

But the script was dull with the characters.

It's at least entertaining.

Cute movie very entertaining .

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

Decently entertaining...

Yes, it has the predictable boring plot.

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

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

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

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

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.

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.

I enjoyed it .

Don't waste your time or money.

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

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.

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.

The direction is cliché.

And i enjoyed it.

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

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 enjoyed it.

Don't waste your time and money .

-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.

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.

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!
