About the Movie
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.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Set your standards on neutral, and enjoy it for exactly what it is -- mindless entertainment that will make you laugh but won't linger in your mind much farther than the theater's parking lot.
Rotten: Only Tomei's thoughts sound like actual thinking.
Rotten: We're never able to escape the feeling that we're watching a manufactured object that starts turning insipid just when it was starting to seem scatty.
Fresh: It introduces us to a kinder, gentler Mel who's not only in touch with his feminine side, but who also widens his fan base considerably in the bargain.
One of the best romantic comedies
I can't count how many times I have seen this...If your a romantic at heart, you will love this movie. It is funny, it makes you cry for the underdog and you laugh all the while. Each time I see this I get something out of it. Not Boring at all... I think men would love to know what women are thinking... Great name too.
this is a very funny movie, definitley worth the money
