If you are a Cosmo reading Mel-aholic and Bette Midler fan – that is, if you are a complete f*cking moron – then you might like this film.
Mel Gibson stars in What Women Want the ‘Rex Reed loved it’ caliber comedy about a chauvenist who gains Spiderman-like powers in an electrical accident that allows him to hear women’s thoughts.
Basically the ‘laughs’ revolve around Gibson’s attempts to understand the trials and tribs of women, changing from a pig to a caring nurturer in the process. Most of the press about this ankle-level urine pool has revolved around the scene where Gibson prances around his apartment in a Cary Grant moment. Which pretty much says it all.
Thinky’s rating: I’d rather have diarrhea.
