What ‘What Men Want’ Got Right

On Monday February 4th I got to preview Taraji P. Henson’s newest film What Men Want.

I expected it to be a knee slapping Rom-Com remake of the 2000 Mel Gibson hit What Women Want, but it was so much more.

I saw myself in the main character, Ali. She’s a successful black woman who grew up surrounded by men and allowed that to convince her she knew it all.

She came from a single parent household where she was very much so loved. Loved so much so that neither she nor her father considered what she might have missed out on, that a two parent household could provide.

Richard Roundtree and Taraji P. Henson in What Men Want from Paramount Pictures and Paramount Players.

Her dating life was a joke much like mine when I started Daamn Daddy.

The movie is filled to the brim with stories of fatherhood.

And DRIPPING with wisdom for both men & women about the impact good fathers have when they are present put the needs of their children first.

Although the theme of Fatherhood comes secondary to the comedic antics of this talented cast, it’s clear somebody in the writer’s room had a story to share.

I don’t want to spoil it before everyone’s had a chance to see it so go support the film & comeback in a few weeks so we can discuss more of what we loved about What Men Want!
