Selena Gomez Knows What Boys Want
New Line provokes deja vu

20 October 2009  |  Written by Owen Williams  |  Source: Variety

New Line have picked up a pitch by Step Up 3D writers Emily Meyer and Amy Adelson for teen romcom What Boys Want, featuring Disney Channel star Selena Gomez.

Does that title sound familiar? Try this: it's about a girl who can hear what the opposite sex are thinking.

Yup indeedy. Although there's no mention of it in Variety's story, this is sounding awfully like a sequel or a spinoff or a reboot or just something that sounds very unofficially similar to 2001's Mel Gibson starrer What Women Want, in which Gibson played a guy who... could hear what the opposite sex were thinking.

Gibson used his talent to win Helen Hunt, but Gomez's potential conquest has yet to be revealed. We're sure he will be wholesome. At least by the end of the movie.

Ugh.
This is basically going to be up to two hours of "Eeewww! boys want to play video games! boys want to have sex all the time! boys want to reposition their tackle for comfort when they sit down too quickly in a pair of shorts! boys want to do evil, EVIL things to cute little Disney starlets in dark alleys..." I think we've seen it all before. NEXT.... More

i love her.
yes i am a kid, but i do have knowledge of films. you may think shes a crap actress cause she's disney related, but seriously she could be good. either way this sounds definatly like a spin off, and it will probably be bad. but it's something for her i suppose, and teens like me who like her. i can't wait.
