What do women
want? Helen Hunts' job! Geeze she gets to make out with some of
Hollywood's' hottest man stash. Here is no exception.
an established stud de force, joins her in one of the seasons
cutest movies. Can I say that without labeling it dull? It's very
funny in a" I- could- have- have- told- you- that" way.
story goes...Nick Marshall (Melvin) is a real man pig. He has
no respect for women. He has that bloated "I am soooo
superior, bow to me lassie" complex so rampant in the male
species these days (not that I'm bitter mind you...). And while
Nick is especially gorgeous to look at, he has the innards of
a retarded (male) sloth. He's in advertising. The sexist kind.
You know the standard beers and boobs, booze and bimbos combo.
Ah, but the demographics have changed. The playing field is now
ours. Women rule the market place and old Nick better change
his tune but quick.
The boss has brought in an uberchick , Darcy (Helen "golden
gal" Hunt) to turn around the company. Get into what women
want and start to direct the advertising dollars correctly. Nicky
is pissed. Poor schmuck hasn't a clue...
Luckily for him he has a freak accident that leaves him with the
ability to read women's minds.(go with it) Actually, hear their
thoughts. Nick hears all our mischievous little secrets- the things
guys don't give us credit for. Sugar and spice and everything
nice? Written by a guy! Girls know we can be worse than men at
times with our throw- him- down- in- the- mud- and- ride- him-
like- the- wild- banshee- you- are thoughts. WWW just
lets the boys in on our little secrets.
A very funny concept and a very funny movie. WWW is a nice
frosty Freudian cocktail- shaken not stirred. Mel Gibson
is very comfortable as a comic actor, as we've learned before.
He really gets into this role. Sure he's five foot nothing but
the sexiest five foot nothing this gal's ever seen.
is in everything these days. Which is okay because she's
good. She's pretty much the same in everything though. Ms.Everygal
USA. I like to think we are not all that International
This is a
wonderful date movie, or night out with the gals. Bravo. Clever
and honest, a real hootenanny! Maybe it'll teach guys a thing
or two, too. Enjoy.
