 "What Men Want" a Smarter Than Expected Comedy 

The genius stroke of What Men Want, a gender-swapping spin on Nancy Meyers' 2000 film What Women Want starring Mel Gibson as an arrogant ad exec who learns humility and humanity when he gains the power to read womens' minds, is that it fully realizes that women already know what mean want and they don't need to have the power to read mens' minds because it's not exactly difficult.

 "Happy Death Day 2U" a Surprisingly Successful Sequel 

The original Happy Death Day was a pleasant surprise, a rather gleeful and somewhat perversely enjoyable Groundhog Day riff set in the world of PG-13 horror and produced by the folks who would know how to produce such an effort - Blumhouse Productions. The nearly $5 million motion picture grossed just over $55 million in the United States alone and right around $125 million worldwide.
