I knew there was a What a Women Want reboot in the works, and my interest was **zero**. I heard they were flipping the script a la genders, and it was still zee - row. Cast Taraji P. Henson in the lead and I was like: "Fuck... I'm gonna have to watch this now aren't I?" And so I did. But I probably shouldn't have. _Final rating:★½: - Boring/disappointing. Avoid where possible._
Good watch, could watch again, and can recommend. While it's potentially problematic for many of the same reasons for the Mel Gibson "What Women Want", I think this is a much better version, and a good modernization. It's also a good way to shift it to a "black movie". Taraji P. Henson does an excellent job carrying the movie and it is full of good humor, and exciting moments. The movie does send a little bit of a mixed message as it seems to indicate that a woman needs to be a man in order to play in a man's world, but it feels more like its about it not being a man's world. This is a good time, my only concern is that she's not a very likable character at the start of the movie.
