Nick Marshall, played by Mel Gibson, receives
the temporary ability to read women's minds, and also to steal
ideas from his creative advertising director, played by Helen
Hunt, in order to take over her job.
This movie will tickle your funny bone
over and over.
The sci-fiction part is important to make
a believable, fun story. So don't let that bother you, and enjoy
a sexy, sassy, racy, spicy, romantic story.
Mel Gibson is terrific as the male chauvinistic
ad exec who can hear what women think.
He must deal with his estranged daughter,
a suicidal co-worker, and a new conquest (not to mention the
thoughts of every women in Chicago).
Will he get the new ad campaign done in
time? You bet, and still have plenty of time to fall in love
with his new boss, Helen Hunt.
This naughty-and-nice romantic comedy takes
on the charm and humor of a date flick after you accept the shock
that the male star has the ability to hear everything women are
I like the way the humor was injected throughout
What Women Want, giving the film a warm and happy feeling.
The lyrics to the many romantic songs in
the movie kind of make a guy want to be a better man--especially
with the acting help of Helen Hunt, who has accomplished this
in the past for more than one super star.
Now it's Mel Gibson's turn to be adorned
by her charms.
