Reviews: What Men Want (2019)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members:

  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: Back in 2000, Nancy Meyer had a hit with her Mel Gibson vehicle “What Women Want” about an ad exec whose bump on the noggin allows him to hear women’s thoughts. It was a pretty bad movie. This one is worse.
  • Candice Frederick @ The Wrap
  • Courtney Howard @ FreshFiction.tv
    • Excerpt: Whatever empowerment it admirably hopes to inspire is completely buried under a heavy swath of rote qualities.
  • Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
    • Excerpt: It seems all the writers’ ideas got through when a no-nonsense editor should have been ready with the delete button. Nobody, not the writers nor the director, considered the film would punch harder with a more composed, thoughtful humor instead of its whoopee cushion equivalent.
  • [New] | Frank ochieng @ ScreenAnarchy
    • Excerpt: It is just too bad that What Men Want comes across as a sketchy sideshow that fails to fuel any comical chaos between the embattled genders. This romantic romp wastes its entertaining potential in the shadows of a gender-swapping genre already feeling achingly gimmicky.
