Telepathetic

What Women Want has far too little on the mind

Nick Marshall (Mel Gibson) learns absolutely nothing but the obvious in What Women Want.

Nick Marshall (Mel Gibson) learns absolutely nothing but the obvious in What Women Want.

Then, for the first time in his life, Nick doesn't get what he expected -- a promotion to creative director of his firm. That gig goes to Darcy, whose rep as a "man-eating bitch" has followed her on the sellout circuit. She and Nick immediately clash: Darcy suspects he's a woman-hating hack, and Nick figures her for a castrating demon. In an hour, they're making out in a restaurant. An hour later ... well, you figure it out; suffice it to say that, once more, Helen Hunt makes a self-absorbed prick want to be a better man. This stuff really isn't that hard, you know, not when Hollywood keeps turning out sitcoms masquerading as movies, and What Women Want is dying for a laugh track. Really, what women want is what all of us want: a decent movie, something vaguely insightful and occasionally funny. This isn't that movie.
