Will Packer’s Remake of ‘What Women Want’ Is Exactly What We Needed In 2019

The classic, What Women Want, has been revamped by the well known producer Will Packer. Many were concerned that Packer’s changes of the original film, would ruin the overall plot. Not only has Packer constantly given the black community iconic movies, but he has yet again produced a movie we didn’t even realize we needed.

What Men Want, is the revamped version starring Taraji P. Henson. In fact, the newer version is completely different from the original. From the characters to the scenary, all elements have been changed. Adam Shankman, the director, spoke in an interview with Cinema Blend about the changes. “We’re just drawing from the overall comedic set up about being in a situation where understanding what the opposite sex would be thinking and how it would change them in a way they would behave and what that would entail,” Shankman said.

The movie starts off with a great indication that Henson’s character, Ali Davis has it all figured out – which is how most of us feel in life as well. However, Ali Davis seems to have a hard time as her career as a woman sports agent. Although, logistically she does well, her lack of connection with men is what drives the movie’s plot. After a freak accident, Davis gains the ability to read minds of the opposite sex. She turns this accident into her “success factor,” or so she thinks.

 

As a romantic comedy, the audience is lifted into laughter, however, the movie has elements that address several social issues. We see Tracey Morgan and Erykah Badu challenging Davis in to distinct ways. Morgan’s character pushes a family aspect that Davis never considered, while Badu initiates the question of: how long is a good thing, actually a good thing? In the movie, Davis has conflict between both issues that are also an epidemic for most working women. Moreover, it is important to note how the changes are revolutionary for Hollywood. Packer and Shankman implimented black fatherhood, addressed racism and sexism within a work space, and overall female empowerment.

Now if you ever wanted to know what men really think go see What Men Want debuts in theatres this Friday, February 8th. Just remember to not be surprised by what you may hear.
