Final Thought – Cinema Releases 8 February 2019 & Box Office

The latest instalment in the Lego film franchise will no doubt draw in cinema goers on both sides of the Atlantic. However I’m not sure that What Men Want a kind of remake of the Mel Gibson/Helen Hunt romantic comedy What Women Want from 2003 but reversing the roles. A quick look at the trailer reveals it to look incredibly badly written, directed and acted. Hopefully the trailer is not reflective of the film but it simply looks like another generic comedy that misses the magic of the original material.
