“What Men Want Full Movie” If someone were to ask you to name one of the top five highest-grossing rom-coms of all time would you think to answer What Women Want? Despite being written by genius screenwriter Nancy Meyers, it is hard to believe this Mel Gibson film made $182.2 million domestically considering the main character is unapologetically misogynistic.
Well, director Adam Shankman (Hairspray), writer Tina Gordon (Little), and producer Will Packer (Girls Trip), came together to give the movie a much-needed update What Women Want in the form of What Men Wantstarring Taraji P. Henson. Even with its flaws, What Men Want improves upon the original movie’s ideas by using its magical premise to highlight the poor treatment women often face in the workplace.
In What Women Want, Gibson plays Nick, who is described early on as a “man’s man,” idolised by other men around him. When a woman named Darcy (Helen Hunt) is promoted to creative director over Nick at an advertising company, he believes she was only hired because she of her gender and sets out to destroy her. A freak accident allows him to hear women’s inner thoughts and he uses these powers first, to get a woman to sleep with him, and then to manipulate Darcy and steal her ideas. There is nothing likeable about Nick and he never actually proves he is qualified for the job (which he, thankfully doesn’t get… because he falls in love with Darcy, but too little too late, bro). Add to that the fact that he straight up sexually harasses women (including at work!) throughout the first 20 minutes of the movie, and this movie warrants more than a few complaints to the HR department.
