What Women Want
He has the power to hear everything women are thinking. Finally... a man is listening.
Advertising executive Nick Marshall is as cocky as they come, but what happens to a chauvinistic guy when he can suddenly hear what women are thinking? Nick gets passed over for a promotion, but after an accident enables him to hear women's thoughts, he puts his newfound talent to work against Darcy, his new boss, who seems to be infatuated with him.
Stunning drama about a brilliant, charming and basically perfect man that has to cope with being surrounded by women with peanut sized brains.
Go testosterone! Boo oestrogen!
How much you wanna bet Mel Gibson wouldn't be smiling like that if he knew Helen Hunt was Jewish?
Wouldn't it be awesome if Mel Gibson could read your lady-brain?
I think this might be the only Mel Gibson movie I've seen where he doesn't kill at least one person. Also I'm not sure what kind of person chooses Helen Hunt over Marisa Tomei, but other than that it's an entertaining comedy.
Not even enjoyable for your average predictable Hollywood fare.
For a film that deals with hearing a person's inner most thoughts, Mel Gibson sure talks to himself out loud alot. That is one strict screen writing flaw that must be avoided and this film baths in. It is usually tricky to convey to audiences what a character is thinking but to have them say it out loud is completely unrealistic and unnatural. Not only that but it is also the equivalent of spoon feeding the audience every little subtlety; just blatantly not trusting the viewer's intelligence to get the fact that "yeah he doesn't know what he is doing putting on that women's make up and apparel" and its quite…
*Sigh* I was hoping for a light, enjoyable piece of fluff that would keep me entertained and wouldn't challenge me. Well, for the first hour or so, it was proving to be decent enough, though still predictable, but then it veered off into laughable sentimentality and became a massive caricature of itself.
The characters are all tired stereotypes, and the script wades deep into overplayed plot developments. There are irritatingly shallow depictions of men at play here, with blatantly unsubtle sexist jibes that should be beneath a professional director. There are occasional sparks of wit and charm, but they're blown out by the heavy handed direction, the unrealistic characters and the yawn inducing story which turns more and more sappy…
Estirar el metraje de una película más allá de lo conveniente siempre es un error. Sirva como ejemplo la presente comedia: al principio es divertida y presenta unos cuantos gags afortunados, pero empieza a estirarse cual chicle y termina siendo aburrida, reiterativa y previsible.
Gibson aprovecha bien las numerosas secuencias para su lucimiento, pero el excelente plantel de secundarios está muy desperdiciado.
Excelente rendimiento en taquilla.
This is not a perfect movie. This is certainly a product of its time in terms of understandings of gender and sex. However, even with that in mind it is an incredibly progressive piece of romantic cinema in how it handles ideas like virginity, the bitch in the boardroom, misogyny, and fatherhood. There are moments in this film that are so touching and so funny and so perfect that I cannot blame it for its imperfections. Rather I want to hold it up for what it gets so right.
Saving it - the vitriol - for the podcast.
An entertaining morality play. Mel Gibson really makes this film. Without him, it's just another rom-com.
A light-hearted romantic-fantasy-comedy that starts off too slow, with lots of exposition and "look what a jerk Mel Gibson is" material. (There would be plenty of that within the subsequent decade.) But after the transformation that Mel Makes -- where he can hear women's thoughts, by electrocution, of course -- it rebounds, and picks up nicely, taking the plot on a light romp where Mel actually does some pretty decent acting.
Helen Hunt is another "strong woman" character, not much different than she was in, say, "As Good as It Gets." The gist of "What Women Want" is that men would be much better people if they just listened to women and their needs. Men would be better people, which is simplistic and insulting. But it's a comedy, so how can you even get mad about it? I didn't.
Anyway, it's formulaic Hollywood fare, neither horrible nor excellent. It's just there, an amusing diversion, and instantly forgettable.
So bad it made me want to kill.
Haven't seen this one seen VHS and it's still great. Gibson is in the mood, Nancy Meyers knows what she's doing... After this there wasn't been a single romantic comedy nearly enjoyable as this... Remarkable...
Not the way i would use those powers.
A list with film titles that could easily have been titles of porn movies.
Got any more?
I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
