What Men Want Although there are too few movies out there with women of color at the top of the marquee, the way to successfully address this situation isn't by taking an established concept, applying a gender-reversal, and creating an inferior production. In fact, it was guilty of taking a rich premise and strip mining it for quick laughs and fantasy-fulfillment while leaving a host of intriguing possibilities behind. However, instead of reclaiming some of the lost potential, What Men Want does a worse job with the core idea than its predecessor. At least What Women Want could be identified as an enjoyable rom-com with a dose of female empowerment.
Chuck Dane Cook has a curse on him by some goth girl so every time he has sex with a girl, the girl finds the man of there dreams the next time they go on a date. Some may think of this as being lucky cause just about every girl wants to have sex with Chuck, but soon he comes across Cam Wexler Jessica Alba who is the girl of his dreams. Dane Cook plays a sweet guy that has respect for women, which I highly doubt he is in real life. Cause just about every girl in this movie is shallow and dumb, superstitious slut including Cam Wexler who is Jessica Alba's character. She tries to make her character seem clumsy, cute and a bit ditsy but she just comes across as clumsy, ditsy, dumb and a bit psychotic. Chuck is a dopey dentist and works in the same building as his best friend Stu Dan Fogler.
