Overview
Mel Gibson and Helen Hunt light up the screen in this winning romantic comedy about a man who thinks he's God's gift to women – until he hears what they're really thinking.

Gibson plays Nick Marshall, a swinging bachelor scaling the corporate ladder of one of Chicago's hottest ad agencies. But Nick's fast-track success is derailed when the agency overlooks him and hires beautiful Darcy McGuire (Helen Hunt) as the new creative director. As Nick's prospects begin to dim, he is jolted by a freak accident that leaves him with an extraordinary ability: he can hear what women think - and want!

Using his newfound gift to his advantage, Nick schemes to undermine Darcy by listening to her thoughts and stealing her ideas until something happens that he didn't account for - he hears his own inner voice...and realizes he's in love. Co-starring Marisa Tomei, What Women Want is "a laugh-out-loud celebration of the sexes."*
