I’m Sorry, but a Teenage Girl Version of ‘What Women Want’ is Just Not Going to Work


The Disney Channel’s Selena Gomez is in final negotiations to star in What Boys Want, which yes, is a take off the Mel Gibson movie where he can read women’s minds. However, it will be Gomez who is doing the mind reading, and the victims will be teenage boys. Does anyone else see a problem here?

What is it you thought about constantly as a teenage boy? Hell, what is it you think about constantly now? And I can only imagine the types of things a bunch of fifteen year old guys would think if they saw someone like Selena Gomez staring intently at them.

So when I said this isn’t going to work, I meant as a concept, because surely the studio will have to completely fabricate what teenage boys think about, replacing “boobs” with “just a girl to have and hold” and “ass” with “someone who will listen to my problems.” This movie IS going to work commercially, and will do HUGE business when it releases, as a billion teenage girls will flock to the theaters, about to be desperately misled about what it is boys think about all day.
