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

I enjoyed it.

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.


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

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

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

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

Tasteless and unwatchable .

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.

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

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

Cute movie very entertaining .

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

Great lead, but boring and dump.

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

Simple, enjoyable, fun and meaningful.

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

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.

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

Don't waste your time and money .

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

Yes, it has the predictable boring plot.

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.

Don't waste your time or money.

We found it very entertaining.

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

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

Well worth watching.

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

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

Checking off every cliché in a romantic comedy list.

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

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

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

Decently entertaining...

And the plot pretty much went nowhere.

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

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

It's boring, superficial and commercial.

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

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.

Liberal remakes are everywhere these days 🙄 It doesn't even make sense to have this one, it's pointless.

Don't waste your money.

Entertaining Film .

Worth watching to get your own take on it.

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

It is a waste of time


That movie is correct and entertaining !

I enjoyed it a lot and would watch it again!

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.

However it's a flawed if intermittently enjoyable comedy.

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

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

Worst Movie of 2019 .

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

But the script was dull with the characters.

I found it fun and very entertaining.

The film is entertaining inserted with a few lessons.

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

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

Funny and good blend of characters made it quite enjoyable.

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

The direction is cliché.

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!

Funny Moments, Slow Start .

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

are entertaining as Ali's inner circle.


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.

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

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

Boring boring boring .

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

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

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

Enjoyable movie.

It's at least entertaining.

Plot is boring and predictable.

Junk, don't waste your time .

And i 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.

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.

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


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

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

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

Super boring.

Funny and entertaining!

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

Needless to mention the ending was pathetically predictable.

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.


Don't waste your time.

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

I caught myself yawning a lot.

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

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

Awful, don't waste your time .

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.

The story was predictable and the jokes were so bad.

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.

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

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.

I enjoyed it .

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

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.

Heartwarming and predictable .

The film was shallow but mildly entertaining.

If started slow and I was hoping it would improve.

Phoebe Robinson, also funny, made boring.
