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.
This film's core message is that it's impossible for men to understand women without resorting to magic. I hated the main character, and I found a lot of the interactions pretty unbelievable. That said, it was pretty entertaining.
Despite the rating this is actually a huge guilty pleasure of mine. Mel Gibson is due for a comeback.
Mel in pantyhose! worthy of your time.
Pretty standard 90s/2000s rom-com with a fun premise.
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
