Actors: Tracy Morgan, Aldis Hodge, Richard Roundtree, Taraji P. Henson, Wendi McLendon-CoveyFrom the producers of GIRLS TRIP and RIDE ALONG comes raunchy new comedy WHAT MEN WANT. Starring the one and only Taraji P. Henson, this gender bent remake of the (19-year-old) hit rom-com WHAT WOMEN WANT is the update we never knew we needed.
Ali Davis is a hyper-competitive sports agent and the only women in a testosterone filled workplace. When she’s overlooked for a well-deserved promotion, she questions what it will take to succeed in a male-dominated industry. After a wild night at her friend’s bachelorette party involving a kooky shaman and a nasty head bump, Ali wakes up with the ability to hear men’s thoughts — giving her the opportunity to finally maneuver her way into her company’s male-dominated inner circle and outsmart her colleagues to sign the next rising basketball star.
Henson takes a step away from dramatic roles and gets back to her roots as a brilliant, tell-it-like-it-is comedienne. She’s a charming and energized lead, expressive and funny. She is joined by a hilarious cast including Tracy Morgan, Richard Roundtree, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Josh Brener, Max Greenfield, Pete Davidson, and Erykah Badu.
