Erykah Badu plays a psychic in the gender-flipped What Men Want trailer
The movie is out in January 2019.
What Men Want is a gender-flipped take on the 2000 Mel Gibson movie What Women Want in which Taraji P. Henson plays a sports agent who attempts to break the glass ceiling after gaining access the thoughts of her clients and colleagues.
The casting in the movie is pretty solid. Henson is a queen while Tracy Morgan plays one of the many men whose thoughts she can now hear. What takes this trailer up to another level though is the arrival of Erykah Badu. It is Badu who makes the tea (secret ingredient: peyote) that Henson drinks in order to gain her speical power. This is a cameo that makes sense. Would you honestly be surprised to learn that she posseses this ability? Exactly.
Check out the trailer above. What Men Want is released in January 2019.
