Man this one is great! I've seen it a few times, and it was on cable, so I got to check it out again. Mel Gibson is Nick Marshall, who through an accident can hear what women are thinking. I think the writers nailed it too, women really do think the way that this film portrays. This movie could actually be used in some sort of training for men to understand women..I mean we're not that complex really, for the most part we just like meaningful conversation. What Women Want is so well put together, and is great for one continual laughing fest.
Another in a series of fluffy comedies I watched this week that turned out to be a lot better than I expected them to. This was quite a funny movie, without nearly as much stupidity as I expected from it. As far as romantic comedies go, this one stays in the highish middle of the list. And that's about as coherent as I'm going to get right now.

What Women Want (2000)

I think this is a pretty solid Mel Gibson comedy. It has some hilarious moments. It's entertaining but nothing spectacular.
I'm beginning the rather lengthy task of entering into the database every film I have seen, at least those I have a decent memory of. Some may have the briefest of reviews while many will just have a number. Those films that I consider personal favorites and/or those that have some historical signficance I will add later when I have time for more lengthy reviews.

The Man From Elysian Fields, directed by George Hickenlooper, stars Andy Garcia as a struggling writer who is approached by a man (Mick Jagger) that runs a male escort agency which caters to waelthy women. Desperate for money, Garcia takes the job, all the while keeping this a secret from his wife (Julianne Margulies). The cast also features James Coburn, Olivia Williams and Anjelica Huston. Although the film is uneven, the cast keeps things interesting.

What Women Want, directed by Nancy Myers, is a romantic comedy starring Mel Gibson as a successful ad executive who has always considered himself to be a ladies' man although he's never had a clue to what women really think. Suddenly he is given those powers and he tries to use them to his advantage. There is really nothing new here, nor was the film funny. The cast also includes Helen Hunt, Marisa Tomei, Layren Holly and Alan Alda.

Bringing Down the House, directed by Adam Shankman, stars Steve Martin as a divorcess trying to get his life back in order when convict Queen Latifah arrives. It's an odd couple comedy where Queen Latifah's character has to overcome how Steve Martin tries to stereotype her. For the most part the film fails, but it does have a few laughs. Eugene Levy co-stars.

A man suddenly finds himself able to women's minds and know what woman want from men. Now what guy doesn't want to be in that position? This was a terrific idea for film and it was executed to perfection. Who better than Mel Gibson to reprent the men in this situation? He's the one man woman probably wish understod them. Any rate, Gibson turns on the Gibson charm here and there's not a better film in which to do that. Helen Hunt make great leading lady and is her usual charming self. Also, from supporting cast, it's great to see Alan Alda, one of the most underrated actors of our time. This film starts with a unique, funny ide, and it doesn't disappoint in terms of how good it can be executed. Well casted, well directed, and funny film.

What Women Want

This is good comedy. It's original, funny, and charming. Overall, I liked it and would recommend it as a nice stay-at-home date movie. Gibson plays funny pretty well, but surprisingly, Hunt plays it even better. I thought she subtly had the funniest role in the movie, and she played it rather well. Now, this movie is still full of the cliche chick-flick personality traits that cause most to fail. Luckily, this one has that extra comedic punch to push it over the edge. Definitely see this with your significant other; it's quite funny. If you're a man looking for tips, sure, see this movie. It won't help but you might as well try.

Funny film and a chick flick for guys.
