What Men Want

Flipping the script on a light-hearted romantic comedy has never felt so dismal or uninspired (much like my own personal love life). What Men Want is a remake of the 2000 comedy What Women Want when Mel Gibson (Daddy's Home Two, 2017) magically earns the power to hear all women's thoughts and even more magically becomes less of a misogynist in the process.

On the evening of February 20, 1939, the marquee of Madison Square Garden was lit up with the evening's main event: a "Pro-America Rally." The organizers had chosen the date in celebration of George Washington's birthday and procured a 30-foot-tall banner of America's first president for the stage. More than 20,000 men and women streamed inside and took their seats. The view they had was stunning: Washington was hung between American flags...and swastikas.

The group designated 1,020 organizations as hate groups in 2018, a high of at least 20 years.

Out of 16, just five remain.
