What Women Want : He has the power to hear everything women are thinking. Finally… a man is listening.
Women really want men to understand them, but when a man that has been living the stereotypical perfect dude’s life suddenly gets the ability to hear the thoughts of every female he encounters, it makes for some great funny moments, and really opens his eyes to the other half of the world around him. This is the story of Nick Marshall (Mel Gibson), an advertising executive in Chicago that always has the perfect angle to sell to the men. He’s the go-to-guy when you want to sell auto parts, beer, and any of those products that are so commonly seen when we watch sports on the weekends. The thing is Nick’s mindset is still in 1970s Las Vegas, which is where he grew up. His mother was a showgirl, and often had mob bosses and professional gamblers as her boyfriends. So even twenty years later, Nick still has this view of women, and he sees them as just something to use, either professionally or personally. He is in for a very rude awakening when a new executive is hired on at his firm, in the position he was favoured to be promoted to.
