want to smile, laugh out loud a few times, and have a couple of hours while
away at the movies to beat the winter blues, this is definitely a film
Marshall (Mel Gibson) is a super, male-pig, and macho advertising exec
that suddenly knows what women want. This is not because of years of sensitivity
training - no, instead he is electrocuted while using his daughter's hairdryer,
and suddenly he can hear what all women are thinking.
as quite a shock when he discovers that not all women think him nearly
as charming as he thinks himself!! "Whoa, lighten up on the after-shave
bud." "If I have to listen to another idiotic joke, smile and pretend I
think itís funny" - well, you get the picture. What women say and think
can be two quite different things.
Marisa Tomei has a charming, small part as a local coffee maker that finally
allows Nick to seduce her. His attempts to get a satisfactory rating during
sex with her are priceless indeed. Mel's new boss is, of course, a woman.
Darcy (Helen Hunt) expects trouble from Nick, his reputation having proceeded
him. When she asks the advertising team to come up with some new ideas
for a series of feminine products such as pantyhose, lipstick, leg-wax
and mascara Mel manfully takes it all home and gives it a whirl. Because
he can now read Darcy's mind, Nick steals some of her best ideas and passes
them off as his own before she can utter the words out loud.
Mel is always a charmer, and even if he and Helen Hunt aren't the perfect
couple, they are certainly an entertaining one. What Women Want
will be guaranteed to bring a smile to your face.
