While at a night out with her girlfriends, one of them has hired a quirky psychic named Sister to do some readings for them. Ali tells Sister her issues with work and that she needs to be able to read men better. Sister gives her some tea and sends her out to party with her friends. Some things happen and Ali wakes up the next morning with the ability to hear men’s thoughts.
WHAT MEN WANT is directed by Adam Shankman. It is based on the 2000 movie with Mel Gibson and Helen Hunt. In this version, it is flipped around when it comes to the genders of the lead role. Henson plays the role similar to how she has is in the THINK LIKE A MAN movies.

Coloring is brilliant and bold.
