My Thoughts

I give the What Men Want Blu-ray a B.

Taraji P. Henson stole the show and holds her own in this film.  Though I’m not a huge fan of comedy, I did enjoy it.

We can all relate to Ali (Henson).  She works hard, hoping for a promotion only to get passed up by an undeserving co-worker.   Unfortunately to get there, she gains a “gift” and tells a white lie but in the end, she realizes that being herself is the best thing to do.

My favorite part of this entire film was Taraji P. Henson’s performance.  As I stated before she stole the show. Who wouldn’t want to hear what Men think (or for that matter anyone)?  I think it would be awesome maybe for a few hours to hear men’s thoughts but after that, I think it would annoy me.  Thoughts are best kept to oneself.

Catch What Men Want out on Blu-ray, Digital, & DVD May 7th!
