What Men Want is a 2019 Paramount Pictures obviously knows what men want. They want a romantic comedy headed-up by Taraji P. Henson. Girls Trip producers Will Packer and James Lopez are behind this upcoming winter release, and they had a big hit on their hands with that previous comedy. So they obviously know what men want too. Do we have to say it any louder? They want more Taraji P. Henson! Adam Shankman directs What Men Want. He's perhaps best known for reviving John Waters' cult classic Hairspray as a big screen musical. The original What Women Want was one of Mel Gibson's last great films. It followed a chauvinistic advertising executive who acquires the ability to hear what women are thinking. He attempts to use this power to bring about the fall of his female boss, but as he uses this inside knowledge to outwit his superior, the bachelor begins to fall in love with her, and so finds himself feeling more than a little guilty when his plan to have her sacked looks like it.
