Reviews:
"Certainly the introduction of Taraji P. Henson’s protagonist refreshingly realigns a by-now classic narrative conceit, along with the Atlanta setting within the world of professional sports." - 02/06/2019 Hollywood Reporter


"At the center of WHAT MEN WANT, Taraji P. Henson is a blazing ball of compressed energy..." - 02/06/2019 Variety


3 stars out of 4 -- "Henson's very funny but grounded performance keeps us rooting for Ali..." - 02/08/2019 RogerEbert.com


"Say this for Taraji P. Henson: when she commits to a role she commits to a role, and she is the primary reason why the cheerfully bawdy comedy WHAT MEN WANT is consistently funny and entertaining." - 02/07/2019 Chicago Sun-Times


3 stars out of 5 -- "It’s a fun idea to gender-flip the premise of Nancy Meyers’ 2000 romcom WHAT WOMEN WANT, and a shrewd decision to recast the film’s protagonist as black....Cameos from Pete Davidson and 30 Rock’s Tracy Morgan are enjoyable..." - 03/17/2019 The Guardian


3 stars out of 5 -- "There’s a cosmic rightness to gender-swapping a Mel Gibson sexual politics comedy..." - 03/14/2019 Empire
