Filthy Teenagers

I read this article today on Slashfilm. For those who don't want to read it let me give you the gist of it. A new film has been announced which is a teen, reversed, skew on Nancy Meyers' 2000 film What Women Want.

The original film is great, it's pre-mega-crazy Mel Gibson at his best, in a wonderful Nancy Meyers film, in which a man gets a chance by a paranormal gift, to change who he is. Awesome premise, great film.

But isn't a reversed teen version of that film an oxymoron? The title is What Boys Want. I was, not too long ago, a teenage boy, so I know exactly what they want and I can tell you that it is not suitable to be heard in public at all, let alone by teenagers. So either this film will stay true to what teenage boys really think and get an 18 classification, preventing most teenagers from watching it, or it won't be a true representation of what teenage boys think at all, get a 12 rating and fall flat on its arse.

Thoughts and Comments please.
