Don't really like Taraji P. Henson, but this looks fun enough to check this out.

Yeah, this looks like dog shit. This concept just doesn't work when you switch the genders. Males are not secretive like females, which was why What Women Want worked so well. Mel grew as a person after being shown a whole new side that he didn't know about before. From the trailer it just looks like Henson is using it win a few minor confrontations for self-gain, and Henson is one of the worst actresses working today.

Algren doesn't remember What Women Want.

True, you don't have to guess what men want. They'll just tell you.

That's why your friends keep secrets from you?

I think this will hurt this film, yes. With WWW Mel had an arc and it was relatable to both men and women. Whereas with this film there's no way this appeals to most men. It feels mean spirited and dumbed down. Fart jokes and hitting guys in the crotch for no reason, seriously? A version of this film that mirrored the tone of the original would have her listening in on co workers being worried that they're gonna get fired and their wife will leave them as a result and then understanding their demanding and competitive nature at work is partly due to pressure. Or something like that.

Maybe that is indeed part of the plot but they're just hiding it to focus on the more 'comical' stuff. It's hard to imagine an entire film sustained in the vein of the what the trailer shows.

Like... the first half of that trailer is... yikes.

But both films are by Nancy Meyers. So I have decent hopes for this.

lol thanks for the reminder Chippy.

Doesn't make this remake any better.

I don't particularly like Taraji P Henson, but she deserved more than the awful script that seems to have been greenlit.

This is actually kind of creepy.

I was watching What Women Want yesterday and thought why didn't anyone ever make a What Men Want?

I'm so sorry I had that thought. PS that film is still pretty solid
