About 18 years ago a man got a chance to peer into the minds of women. Well now the tables have turned and a woman is seeing the dark recesses of men’s minds. Only in movies!
What Men Want stars Taraji P. Henson along with Tracy Morgan. We’ll also get a glimpse at the acting chops of Shaq, Erykah Badu & Grant Hill.
The newly engaged (in real life) Henson plays sports agent Ali Davis who gets passed over for a promotion. After drinking some tea prepared by none other than Erykah Badu’s character and getting a nasty bump on her head, she suddenly has the power to hear men’s thoughts.
Based on the clip below, Badu is perfect for this role!

Sound familiar? It should!
The movie I alluded to is called What Women Want and it starred Mel Gibson and Helen Hunt. Gibson was a chauvinist exec that also got passed over for a promotion. Hunt got the job instead.
What Men Want produced by Will Packer comes out January 2019.
Check out the newly released trailer!
