What Men Want

Workplace comedy based on 2000's "What Women Want" examines female empowerment and the constant mutual misunderstandings that beset the sexes. Taraji P. Henson plays a high-powered, foul-mouthed sports agent whose career stalls because she fails to connect well with men. A magic potion gives her the ability to read male minds and puts her in touch with her inner strength. Director Adam Shankman and screenwriters Tina Gordon, Peter Huyck and Alex Gregory have baked in a surprising number of thematic layers, but a somewhat high raunch factor and a gay subplot narrow the appropriate audience for their film.

Watch out for: Three nonmarital sexual encounters, references to homosexuality, some vulgar banter, at least one profanity and pervasive rough and crude language.

Rated: L, limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling; MPAA: R
