Theater Date

December 15, 2000


The ability to hear the thoughts of the female gender becomes real for a chauvinistic advertising executive in the film What Women Want. Facing difficulties relating to a teenage daughter, sustaining a real relationship, and creating advertising relevant to the female populace, Mel Gibson’s character gains the ability to telepathically hear women’s thoughts when around them. This ability initially enables the protagonist to manipulate the women around him. However, as his manipulation continues, he learns to empathize rather than manipulate. Eventually, the ability to hear women’s thoughts results in the desire to repair the relationships with the women in his life.
