going to the movies > going out.

This tweet describes my forever mood. Shout out to my homegirl Cherise for going to see What Men Want with me tonight. It’s all I wanted to do honestly. First off, I thought this was starring Tiffany Haddish. I suck lmao. It’s definitely with Taraji P. Henson who is a phenomenal actress. We hit the 9:30pm showing at AMC Burbank 16 which is such a chill theater later in the evening. I hella enjoy coming here.
This was actually perfect for Valentine’s Day, which I spent watching Trina. I thought the movie would be much more romance-focused, but actually literally Taraji is hearing what men think in their heads. Pretty unrealistic but pretty interesting at the same damn time.
IMDB plot: A woman is boxed out by the male sports agents in her profession, but gains an unexpected edge over them when she develops the ability to hear men’s thoughts.
I actually really liked how much it involved sports. I used to want to work for the Clippers so bad (only ’cause I live in LA, Warriors 4L). The film is 2 hours but it’s entertaining the entire time. Our theater was laughing. We were laughing. It got 50% ratings but that’s just because the movie was super light-hearted and not to be taken too seriously — which I think is usually what critics do. It’s been a minute since I’ve been to the movies so I was super content.
Pete Davidson has a hilarious role but I thought of Ariana Grande the whole time lmao smh. If I was you, I’d wait for Netflix. Shout out to AMC and their bomb cheese popcorn.
