This week we’re discussing Taraji P. Henson’s latest film, “What Men Want”, which hit theaters on February 8, 2019. The film is about Taraji P. Henson’s character, Ali Davis, a sports agent who is passed up for a well deserved promotion because she is a woman. Unsure about what it takes for her to succeed in her career path, she then she visits a psychic (Erykah Badu) for answers. The psychic gives her a weird concoction that suddenly allows her to hear what men are thinking — including the men in her workplace. Using her newfound ability, Ali starts to turn the tables on her obnoxious male colleagues while racing to sign the next basketball superstar. The film was produced by Will Packer, who was also responsible for Ride Along, Girls Trip and Night School. Do you think Landon Lavarius and DJ Franchise enjoyed Taraji’s new chick flick?
