What Men Want


Taraji P. Henson

Symphony Jackson, Reporter

The new movie, What Men Want, starring Taraji P. Henson, is a hilarious movie but is not child friendly. The movie is about how a woman feels like the place she works at treats her differently from the men and that they are holding her back from what she deserves. She ends up with the power to read all men’s minds and uses it to get what she wants. She then realizes that she is also part of the problem and changes her attitude and perspective.

This is the type of movie I would recommend you go see on a date night or out with friends. The movie is not the type you would take your kids to see. There is a lot of language and some very adult scenes that are not appropriate for children. While it is a comedy, it does teach a lesson about how to work with people to get where you want instead of just trying to win all the time. Plus, it gives you an outlook of what women really think goes on inside the minds of men.

I would give this movie a 9 out of 10 just because of the language and some of the scenes. Otherwise, the movie was great it was funny and intriguing. There was never a dull moment in it, there was always something happening. The story line was great and the ending was even better. Henson was a perfect fit for the movie and played her character to a T.
