English's attempts to fit The Women into a modern setting are intelligent, but that, unfortunately, does not suffice, because the film is so limp in so many other ways.

Though it isn't quite Oscar material, Mel Gibson gives what may be the most entertaining big-star performance of its year.

What Women Want may seem like a one-note sitcom sort of movie, but it's funnier and a layer or two deeper than that.

The premise for What Women Want sounds like, and is, the dumbest thing going.

Meyers finds exactly the right bubbly tone for the material then wisely steps out of the way to let Gibson and Hunt work their magic.

Lo que ellas quieren es una comedia ligera que narra lo que todos los hombres quisiramos saber: Qu rayos piensan las mujeres?

Nancy Meyers' wry What Women Want is all kinds of better than Nora Ephron's coincidence-laden Meg Ryan comedies...

certainly funny and entertaining, but it also strikes at some deeper truths about the contemporary state of male-female relationships.

This movie doesn't pretend to be substantial, but it's still just barely passable as light fare.
