Throwback Thursday-What Women Want (2000)

It is often said that you can never truly understand another person until you walk in their shoes. Or perhaps, if you cannot walk in a mile in their shoes, perhaps reading their thoughts might be a good place to start.

In the 2000 romantic comedy, What Women Want, Nick Marshall (Mel Gibson) can be described in one word: sexist.  Then, somehow, a fluke accident allows Nick to hear the internal thoughts of the women around him. At first, Nick believes himself to be cursed. But, then he is convinced that it is actually a blessing in disguise.

Perturbed that he lost a major promotion to Darcy Maguire (Helen Hunt), Nick decided to take advantage of his new abilities. The plan is to get back at Darcy by using her thoughts against her, but when the relationship begins to turn from professional to romantic, Nick may want to re-think his plan.

While the idea for the plot is interesting, it is just another romantic comedy. It’s not the best within the genre, but it is not the worst either.

Do I recommend it? I say maybe, but someone else may say yes.
