Overview

A man finds himself getting an unexpected crash course in the psychology of contemporary women in this romantic comedy. Nick Marshall Mel Gibson is a successful advertising executive living in Chicago who has long fancied himself a ladies' man, though he has precious little understanding of women beyond figuring out how to seduce them. One day, Nick receives a substantial electric shock in an accident in his bathroom; while he's not seriously injured, when he comes to, he discovers something remarkable has happened -- he can suddenly hear what women are thinking. At first, Nick finds himself learning all sorts of things he didn't want to know, but he also realizes how this can be used to his advantage -- especially after his old boss, Dan Wanamaker Alan Alda is replaced by a woman, Darcy Maguire Helen Hunt. But Nick begins to feel differently about his unusual gift when he discovers Darcy is infatuated with him, and he finds himself falling for her. What Women Want also features Bette Midler as Nick's analyst, Delta Burke and Valerie Perrine as two of his co-workers, and Marisa Tomei as one of Nick's significant others.

Editorial Reviews

Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
The movie, written and directed by Nancy Meyers, doesn't flow so much as leap from one good scene to another over the crevices of flat scenes in between....If the movie is imperfect, it's not boring and is often very funny, as in a solo dance that Nick does in his apartment, to Frank Sinatra singing "I Won't Dance." This is, we imagine, the way the Tom Cruise character in "Risky Business" might have ended some of his evenings if he had grown up to be Nick Marshall. I also liked the way Gibson handled the sex scene, where his look of joy and complete self-satisfaction at the end is equaled only by Jack Nicholson's famous Triumph T-shirt moment in "Five Easy Pieces."

    A reviewer

    Ok, love Mel Gibson. He is a true talent and I have absolutely loved many of his films, HOWEVER, this was not the right role for him. I believe overall, it was a good script. Helen Hunt performed wonderfully. I did not enjoy seeing Mel Gibson playing the "sexy guy" role. He attempted to be very smooth, suave, and charming and instead he appeared very awkward and clumsy. The ending was such a passionate scene but Mel Gibson just didnt deliver. The whole scene fell flat because of his lack of performance. I could see the passion in Helen's eyes but I could not see it in his. The entire scene just became weird and uncomfortable. I truly believe that if someone better for the role had been cast, the movie would have landed. Not Mel's best, sorry.

    It grows on you...

    Seeing it in the theatre did not impress me, but when it started appearing on TV I found myself watching it over and over. Not a Helen Hunt fan, but was enchanted by her character in this movie. Found the sub-plot with Tomei to be a distraction. Great selection and use of music. Ending felt a little abrupt.

    Do not see this movie

    this is one of the worst movies i have ever seen. The plot is bad, it is badly written, and all the acting is terrible. I would have expected more from Mel Gibson.

    Super cool film

    I think this is one of the best movies I ever seen and after you see it once you just can't stop! I saw many movies of Mel but this is really one of the best (I saw ''Maverick'' at least 3 times and ''Mad Max'', each of the parts 4 or 5 times)! Keep up the good work, you're the best, Mel!

    So what's with the ending?

    Well, I've watched the movie a couple times, and I loved it overall. It didn't seem to have a definite plot line, but it was a great movie. I did think the whole suicidal girl being saved by Mel Gibson was a bit out of place, and could have been left out. I would recommend this movie to everybody except hard core harley-riding punks who would rather spend a Saturday night, well... you get the picture... So go watch it :)
