What Men Want? What the audience wants is to laugh and draw references from the characters and then artistically relate to the on-screen activities. This "Must See Comedy" is seriously adult in its humoresque presentation of current work and personally related social issues.
Categorized as fantasy/romance, 'What Men Want' chronicles the life and times of sports female agent Ali Davis (Taraji P. Henson) and her constant attempt to make partner in this locker-room charged atmosphere. She trash-talks with the best of these high-end boys club penthouse sports agents yet can not mentally connect with them or any other man.
Girlfriends played by Wendi McLendon-Covey, and Tamala Jones, introduce Ali to a psychic (Erykah Badu). Ali's gay personal assistant (Josh Brener) is the first man to experience her new-found mind-reading powers.
Great to see Tracy Morgan and Richard Roundtree round out the cast of comedic drama kings and queens under the directorship of Adam Shankman. This film is an adult fun festival of ad lib genius that can only be enjoyed in pairs.
