All the couples are back for a wedding in Las Vegas, but plans for a romantic weekend go awry when their various misadventures get them into some compromising situations that threaten to derail the big event.
When four lifelong friends travel to New Orleans for the annual Essence Festival, sisterhoods are rekindled, wild sides are rediscovered, and there's enough dancing, drinking, brawling and romancing to make the Big Easy blush.

This film is a loose remake of the 2000 film "What Women Want" with Mel Gibson, in which that plot involved Gibson acquiring the ability to hear what women are thinking. He attempts to use this power to bring about the fall of his female. In this film, the gender role is reversed and the plot here follows a woman who, after drinking a potent concoction given by a shaman, gains the ability to hear men's inner thoughts. See more »

Lots of the Jokes are a swing and miss in this one
Love Taraji and some of the other actors in this movie and wanted to like it. But I walk away thinking this movie is on the bad side of mediocre. Like something you would watch in the middle of the night and you had nothing but basic cable to watch.
The scrip comes off as awkward frequently throughout the movie. Several bizzare lines/scenes that just make you say "wtf" out loud. I wonder what sort of stuff was left on the cutting room floor if this is the stuff that made the movie.
There really isn't much here to draw you in. Most of the humor is jammed in just for the sake of having it.
I can appreciate doing something different with the source material, but this is basically the same exact movie with more sophomoric humor than the original. Any charm that the original had was lost with this script.
