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?
At one point, very-soon after Mel Gibson wakes up with his new ability to read the minds of women, he happens upon a poodle (a dog!) and manages to read its mind. It doesn't happen again in the film, it's only referenced once afterwards but it happened. What sane person doesn't think it'd be interesting to figure out what dogs are thinking? Seriously. What the fuck? Doesn't make sense. Instead Mel Gibson goes around using this new found ability to creep up on women, become their friends and have them be completely enamored by him. He also uses it to blow Marisa Tomei's world.
But the dog. No interest in that. No interest in studying them, and although I do…
Has an interesting premise and solid lead performances from Mel Gibson and Holly Hunter, but "What Women Want" is still a mostly boring, unfunny, and kind of dumb effort from Nancy Meyers.
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.
En que piensan las mujeres
"Come on man, we've got to pull it together. This is what we do."
. . . says Mel Gibson to his penis.
Es una película que no sé si se ha quedado anticuada o si lo era ya desde su creación. Más que en la caricatura que hace Mel Gibson de un machista en su camino de redención la película chirría sobre todo en el tono general, con las mujeres como un ente mítico, misterioso y alienígena incluso para las propias mujeres
Setting Mel aside, there are some great actors in this film, but largely underutilised, so in fact this is largely about Mel getting come-uppance for his rampant misogyny via a light bit of magical nonsense. There's stuff that's likeable in it and it does confront some of that lad culture objectification, but ultimately it's all a rather sappy affair about rich people being more sensitive to one another.
A mediocre romantic comedy starring Mel Gibson.
first of all...i really need that power in myself what woman want...i don't know that mel gibson is a really good dancer....some steps with the cap i just love that...i personally think direction can be much better...otherwise it's good and enjoyable
Let's be real. Being able to read women's minds might be the greatest and most underrated superpower. What guy wouldn't want that?
This is a decent fantastical romantic comedy. Mel Gibson sells the premise with charm. I kinda wish he ended up with Marisa Tomei though, tbh. I think I just love Marisa Tomei.

More and more often as I watch films about relationships, I find myself thinking, "if someone did this in real…
