About this movie

Ali Davis (Taraji P. Henson) is a successful sports agent who’s constantly boxed out by her male colleagues. After a wild night out with her girls, she mysteriously gains the ability to hear men’s thoughts. With her newfound power, Ali looks to outsmart her colleagues as she races to sign the next basketball superstar, but the lengths she has to go to will put her relationship with her best friends and new love interest to the test. All’s fair in love and deal-making in this outrageously funny comedy! Also starring Tracy Morgan, Erykah Badu, Wendi McLendon-Covey, and Max Greenfield.

If I could leave no stars, I would. This is a tasteless film. It took six or seven ppl in the “industry” to come up with this mess as entertainment. The sad thing is, it was written by and portrayed by a few African Americans who say they believe in GOD but blasphemed HIS name from start to finish. Then the vulgarity was despicable. To make a good, fun, film with agendas and personal ideologies, does not take all of that. You wrote in an intelligent little boy being raised by his single father—awesome job. But did you for once think that little innocent child may have wanted to view this movie with family and friends? Society has tossed morals, self-respect, and values to the wind. Just tasteless and despicable.

In my opinion this movie is under-rated. Its a very funny movie and a good movie to watch on your down time. My sister and I kept laughing throughout the movie, and having to play back some scenes, due to the ridiculous things they would make the men think. Yes, this movie can be a little offensive. And if you want to get technical, about every little detail then you will find things discriminating and/or sexist sometimes.But remember its a comedy they can material in there that can be offensive sometimes.

I loved it this movie was funny. This movie is not real life that's why it's called a movie, so come down live a little It's good to have laughter in your life. I can't believe all the negative comments about a movie that's not real life. Seems like some peoples needs to get a life. Laughter is good for the soul.
