WHAT WOMEN WANT is a romantic comedy starring Mel Gibson as Nick Marshall, who was the ultimate man's man. A charming, irrepressible bachelor living on the A-list of life, he loved listening to Sinatra and, like the Chairman of the Board himself, thought he had the world on a string.
Then one night, in the privacy of his Rat Pack dream apartment, that string began to unravel when he got an unexpected jolt, which opened his eyes and ears more than he could have imagined, or ever dreamed of.
Now, Nick Marshall, hot shot advertising executive and self-proclaimed God's gift to women, suddenly found that he had another gift -- when he discovered he could hear the inner most thoughts of every women he came in contact with. For the first time in his life, he becomes unglued, not quite know what to make of his newfound powers. He's also stunned to find out that not only is he not God's gift to women, but every woman in his life thinks he's pretty much of a jerk.
But slowly, Nick begins to realize that he can use this special gift to his advantage ... personally and professionally. "I'm gonna learn so much about being a woman, they're gonna make me an honorary chick," he says slyly.
Mel Gibson and Helen Hunt star in WHAT WOMEN WANT a Paramount Pictures and Icon Productions presentation of an Icon/Wind Dancer production, a film by Nancy Meyers, produced and directed by Nancy Meyers.
