Hot shot advertising executive Nick Marshall (Mel Gibson) thinks he's God's gift to women and can get anyone he wants. After an accident he discovers that he can hear what women are really thinking about and is upset that his showing off techniques are not popular with his female colleagues. To make matters worse his dream of being promoted to a higher position has been thwarted by man-eating, new team member Darcy (Helen Hunt). He does not like this and uses his new found powers to ruin her by reading her mind and selling her ideas as his own. But soon his plan backfires as she starts to fall in love with him and there seems to be no way out.

4.0 out of 5 stars What You Must Want 9 Nov 2002
By A Customer
This new box set provides three funny, original films for the cheapest of cheap prices.
Mel Gibson is simply stunning in What Women Want and the chemistry between him and co-star Helen Hunt makes this film a must-see.
There are many seriously funny jokes and the concept of the film, if a bit way-out, is original.
Miss Congeniality sees Sandra Bullock transformed, by the amazing Michael Caine, from FBI frump to beauty queen. This is one of Bullock's best roles to date and shows a different side to her acting ability.
Caine is hilarious, adequately demonstrating why Mike Myers chose him to star in Austin Powers, Goldmember.
The plot is straightforward but the script keeps you entertained to the end.
Heartbreakers is a film you can watch time and time again and still find the humour as funny as the first time around.
As well as the humour the plot is intricately planned and twists throughout.
Weaver and Hewitt provide plenty of on screen sex appeal and Hackman and Liotta both put in strong performances.
This box-set is a perfect collection of modern romantic comedies. A must-have for any DVD collector.

4.0 out of 5 stars fab idea 22 Feb 2008
Nick Marshall(Mel Gibson) works for an advertising company and on discoving that he has not been promoted and that Darcy McGuire(Helen Hunt) has got the job instead he sets out to sabotage her. Darcy sends each of the people on her team including Nick home with a kit of products that need representation. Mel has no ideas so decides to borrow some of his daughter's music and get into the woman psychy and try all the products on! Though in doing so he manages to electicute himself and ends up hearing every womans thought, including the thoughts of poodles!

Not only does Nick find out that everyone hates him, he also finds himself seriously falling for the woman he set out to destroy.
So Nick sets about restoring the world's opinion of him by becoming a man that women really do want and not just a man that men aspire to be!

5.0 out of 5 stars A film for the girls 13 April 2005
You knwo when your settling in for a girly night....this is the film for you.
a man every womens nightmare, cocky and chauvinistic finally gets what comming to him when he beggins to hear what women are thinking.
mel gibsons performance is fantastic and manages to get you to hate him at the beginging and then fall in love with him by the end! Mel Gibson is what women want, and Helen Hunt is what women want to be!
With fantastic comedy performances from marisa tomei and a camio by miss bett lynch this romantic comedy is a girls best friend.
nancy Meyers gives the film class and has an underlying layer of the old romantic films
classic film making and fantasic performances
buy it

5.0 out of 5 stars The great thing... 9 April 2001
I went with my husband to see this film and we both absolutely loved it! And I can tell you that my hubby is no fan of Mel. From the opening scenes when he wakes up and expects his housekeeper to bring him a bagel his face shows how much he was enjoying starring in the film. My biggest shock was seeing dance to the tune of Frank Sinatra's music. He looked really great. Some people will complain about the implausible plot, but who cares! the question is really what women want and i can tell you that this woman in particular wants to see more films like this and if Mel is in all of them so much the better. By the way the music is great. I left the cinema with a big smile on my face. No need to tell you that I went back for second helpings

1.0 out of 5 stars Great film - bad transfer! 24 Oct 2012
By Fleece
Already have the DVD and just upgraded to the Blu-Ray.
Don't get me wrong, great film etc. Always enjoyed it.
The verdict on upgrade quality between the two?
Dire. Avoid. Awful. Shocking. Don't bother etc etc - unless you don't own the DVD obviously.
On a scale of 1 to 5 on upgrade quality I'll give this a 1 !!! Can't even scrape a 2 !!!

You have been warned.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just one for the girls... 1 Sep 2007
Nancy Meyers has brought us a deliciously wicked and unusual take on the differences between men and women. Giving male chauvinist Mel Gibson (a tour de force) the power to read women's thoughts is so simple and yet fraught with so many issues: and Helen Hunt, his new boss, is the perfect foil for his mind-reading, whereas Marisa Tomei works the other end of the spectrum as the girl who serves him coffee and (she hopes) more besides.

Everyone is superb on this film and the extras, especially the 'making of', show you that everyone respect Meyers (writer/director) and that the mood on set was great, which led to a great, funny, metrosexual movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars THE CRITICS WERE WRONG... 1 Jan 2003
Format:VHS Tape
This movie is surprisingly charming, given the fact that critics pilloried it when it first came out. All I can say is that Mel Gibson still has what it takes to be a leading man in a romantic comedy.
The movie certainly opens promisingly enough with a hilarious sneak preview into the childhood of the main character, Nick, a top advertising agency executive that Mel Gibson plays with great aplomb. Nick is a divorced, male chauvinist who thinks that he is God's gift to women. Unfortunately, as so many men of this type are, he is dead wrong. He is just a man's man who thinks that he is a ladies' man.
He begins to get his comeuppance when the coveted job of Creative Director, to which he is expecting to be promoted, is offered to someone outside the agency, another advertising whiz named Darcie, affectingly played by Helen Hunt. She gets the job, rather than he, so that the agency might be better able to tap into the women's market. She is now his new boss, and Nick is not happy.
After their first meeting, the disgruntled Nick goes home and drinks himself into a stupor. Look for the wonderful dance routine done in best Fred Astaire style. It is a charming salute to an all time great. While in his inebriated state, however, Nick has a shocking accident (pun intended) that enables him to be able to read women's minds.
This ability causes him some distress, as he is amazed to find out what women really think of him, and it is not always flattering. It also enables him to please women as never before, as he is able to read their innermost thoughts and anticipate their needs. It even helps him repair his relationship with his fifteen year old daughter who is undergoing teenage angst.

Before Gibson was a Jew-hating, wife beating alcoholic, he was a great actor. He made many good movies. This was just a silly rom-com but for some reason I really enjoyed it.
