In her latest film, Taraji P. Henson, takes a break from her usual serious roles, and plays a more light hearted character that not only makes her audience laugh, but also makes the audience remember why they love her in the first place.
In “What Men Want” Henson plays sports agent, Ali Davis, who is busy trying to climb to the top in a male dominated field, and on her way to the top she’s blessed with a gift – hearing the thoughts of all men. At first she’s freaked out, but afterwards she uses her gift as a means to get ahead of the competition as well as her love life.
While Henson is the main character, the film also has some important stars as fellow cast members. The cast also includes: Tracy Morgan, Erykah Badu, Pete Davidson, Tamala Jones, Mark Cuban and many others.
The best part about this film is although it’s a comedy, it still manages to explore biases against women in the work place.
“What Men Want” is thought provoking and hilarious. It’s a movie the entire family can enjoy from start to finish. I would rate this movie an eight out ten.
All in all, it’s worth the money and the trip to the theater.
