It’s paramount that I explain to you that this is a comedy movie with no yardstick or serious basis, making it quiet difficult to visualize or believe considering the fact that you know quiet alright this story cannot really happen.
A major question going on in my head was that if this was really possible, so many people will manipulate the others which is typical to us human. Well I was warned to remove reality from this and just enjoy the movie, after all, we have so many unrealistic stories like the super heroes and we still follow true.
If you want to have a good laugh and something to take off your stress, with loads of vulgar words and above 18 adults scenes, then this might not be a bad choice after all, but if you are looking for a real storyline with substance and realistic basis, then you might have to pass on this one. For all the fans of “Girls Trip”, you will enjoy this hilarious movie from the same producers.
It was quiet easy to predict the movie as the trailer gave out too many information, you will kind of know what to expect and how the movie will pan out.
This new movie was directed by Adam Shankman and written by Tina Gordon Chism, Jas Waters, they tried to rewrite the story of a young woman, who acquired mystic powers from a shrink and was able to read the inner thoughts and minds of men, yes only men.
There were a few aspects of the movie that made sense like the cinematography, nice pictures and locations, and costumes, most especially the dresses worn by “Ali Davis” who is popularly known as “Taraji P. Henson”.
They also had some nice actors that made the movie very funny. The downsides were that the storyline didn’t look realistic enough, but made everyone laugh so hard, that they forgot their worries and sorrows, till when it was time to go home.
The movie started off with Ali who played the lead role in the movie at a table with all men. She was gunning for the position of the senior partner, which to her seemed like forever to get to. She felt she was being stereotyped and sidelined from the promotion, when indeed she was actually a terrible team player.
Ali was very hardworking and ambitious; she desperately wanted to get to the peak of the agency and was willing to do anything to get a seat at the top.
There was one obvious truth which was her terrible work relationship with the men she worked with, she was so stubborn and tough and was terrible at listening or taking advice from others.
Suddenly one day she attends an evening outing with her friends, where she meets a shrink called “Sister” who gives her a special tea and unexpectedly she accurses some supernatural powers to read the minds and thoughts of men.
At first she wanted it taken away from her, but on the second thought she realized the goldmine she was seating on and came up with a plan on how to use this to her advantage by getting into the heads’ of her colleagues and using them to get her desired promotion, what she thought was so nice and exciting turned out to become a huge problem for her a few weeks later.
A few lessons learnt from her were that in life, we seek to get something desperately and then when have it we find out that there is more to life than just that.
She was pretty happy and excited when she got the gift that others didn’t have, she was carried away and didn’t use it right to the benefits of others, but for her selfish interest, forgetting that one day she could lose it.
She forgot that what you do with the gifts you have would be either used for or against you. You’ll have to watch to see how it all ended for her.
