0* rating- don’t waste your money

The director has found one of the most aggressive actresses possible for this movie and it becomes tiresome to watch the masculinity.
Boring film. Predictable. . Crape to be perfectly honest.

Stick to the original: What Women Want.
It’s iconic, humorous, tasteful and classy. . . All the things this one is not.
0* rating for this.

Liked the Mel Gibson version of what woman want so thought this would be a giggle but I was wrong . Nothing felt natural or authentic and acting was dreadful .

It’s okay

This film was ok, I loved the original of what women want and I think it’s hard to remake a film and be in the same league as a classic!

Funny rom com

Very funny but just a rework of What Women want with Mel Gibson. But worth watching and I’m a fan of Tara P

Rehash of a better film
Verified purchase
Whilst this was funny in places it seemed to be an attempt to make a complete rehash of What Women Want and failed at it. The fast talking foul mouthed main character just didn’t cut it for me. Not a complete thumbs down but not far off.

its not necessary to be a man...its not necessarily a man's world!

There were some funny moments and the fashion and the classy scenes yet the underlying dissatisfaction is something most can relate to when profiling as if we have it all. its a film about looking within yourself and finding that part of yourself that isn't nice but still needs compassion and a heads-up!!

You have to enjoy shouting

It had its moments and some interesting characters but for me the main one was too OTT and so I kept cringing and annoyed at her high pitched voice and silly antics

Rubbish, not even a good take of what women want, couldn't wait for the film to finish so I could turn it off
