Movie Info & Cast
Ali (Taraji P. Henson) is a take-charge sports agent in Atlanta who is constantly passed over for promotions and career opportunities. When a bizarre night out gives Ali the ability to hear the thoughts of all men around her, the frustrated ten-percenter’s entire world changes.
The flow of information is kind of a curse, to be honest, but Ali uses it to get a leg up on other agents at her firm, especially in the race to sign a new top draft pick. As Ali also tries to apply her new power to her personal life, however, she realizes she’s got to face up to her own shortcomings before she can truly succeed.

Cracked me up. Erika Badu was the sleeper here. Stay while the credits roll
Th movie was awesome!! I really love Taraji character. I love all her movies. She's an incredible actress. This movie made you laugh, cry and keeps you engaged.
A mildly pleasant but significantly flawed vehicle for Taraji P. Henson.
A high-concept comedy about the domestication of a work-obsessed woman that nonetheless managed to win me over.
In the end, it’s a rather conventional feature that satisfies expectations rather than challenging them. As a result, this adaptation looks unlikely to stir the passionate devotion that could confirm it as first-rate comedy material.
