If you want a no brainer, with music from the Frank Sinatra Time- and an idea.....of an advertising guy who can hear what women are thinking...............watch it, your brain will relax.

Mel completely charming, as expected. The dance scene was terrific. They could have given Helen Hunt a little more.

If for nothing else I LOVE the soundtrack and Mel Gibson (in this)! Should be on Blu-ray!

A very interesting movie to watch. I love to watch it again.

While it is occasionally uneven and isn't exactly an Oscar-worthy film, the chemistry between Mel Gibson and Helen Hunt, the story that's both humourous and heartwarming, a reasonably worthwhile premise and the sure-handed direction of Nancy Meyers elevate What Women Want beyond some of the romantic-comedy cliches the film may have.

Oh 2000. Everyone still adored Mel Gibson. People still smoked in movies. Helen Hunt was still sultry.

Very enjoyable.

A guy looses a promotion to a new hire but soon finds that he can read women's minds.

This film is an entertainment in its pure form, why should it necessarily be bad? The movie is fun to watch with beatuful performers.

Wonderful movie, about man's man who due to accident can hear women's thoughts. Well acted, funny and romantic. A good moral heart to the story.

Gibson is as great as the premise, which is explored to often amusing results. I liked it for what it was.

I love this movie!!! Mel Gibson at his best as a sexy male chauvinist pig. Lovable yet despicable. Is it Braveheart worthy. Um no. Different genre people. It's a COMEDY. WITH HEART. Helen Hunt is likable and beautiful as Mel's boss whom can't hide her every thought. As every woman. Imagine a man who can read your thoughts. Could be good. Could be bad. Movie shows both sides. But Mel becomes a better man. Simple easy entertainment. Nothing heavy. No tears. Just fun to watch.

Funny and irresistibly charming, What Women Want is another example of director Nancy Meyers' entertaining and touching direction and delivers a solid comedic performance from Mel Gibson.

Saw this on 26/5/16
A role tailor made for Mel Gibson and the actor slips into the role with ease, but the script does not do him any justice by constantly being weighed down by its formula. However, the movie is still not bad, its just that the formula means that they just have to end the fun after some time and resort to melodrama.

Nick, a chauvinistic executive gains the ability to hear what women think.

As the line above suggests, it's about a man named Nick who's gone through life thinking he's God's gift to women, only to find that he's anything but. The reality check changes him, probably for the better, at least that's what the movie would want you to believe right?

It's a good film and there's plenty of things to like about it. It's not one I'll want to fire up every weekend but for casual viewing it does just fine. As a film released right around the time that advertising was changing precisely as depicted, it seems very timely.

I actually thought this movie was quite funny but it does start to get a bit much towards the end. Probably would have been better if it was shorter.
