If you think that this movie would enlighten you by revealing the biggest secret on earth What women want? Then you will be disappointed especially the male audience but ladies may like it as they can compare a few moments with their own thoughts. It’s more about what different women like wife, daughter, lover, colleagues think at different occasions. I t is the story of a Chicago advertising executive (Mel Gibson) who is divorced and have a 15 year old daughter. He is a charmer who has his way with women but does not really care what women want or think. Just when he think he will become the chief another director is hired who is a woman (Helen Hunt) and the sole purpose of his life becomes to outwit his new boss. Then this miracle occurs and he gets the ability to listen to what women are thinking about and from here on it’s just a plain romantic comedy but a really funny one. The direction is ok, acting is average, there are a lot of women in Hollywood who could have done this role better than Helen Hunt. Mel Gibson gives his usual performance and nothing-extra ordinary. The idea of the movie is new and good. Over all the movie is ok, It is not what it has been projected for but it has it’s funny moments and if you don’t keep your expectations high and watch it as just another romantic comedy then you will enjoy it.
Fiona Travers has had enough of various Mr Wrongs, and the constant reasssurances from friends, family and strangers that one day she will find a man - so she puts herself on the shelf and officially signs off from the hunt for Mr Right. Simple? Not if her well meaning friends and family have anything to do with it! They can't quite believe that she means it, so to prove the point, Fee gets involved in making a TV programme announcing the fact to the world, and then has to live with the consequences! As well as all this, she's also trying to solve the various problems of her friends, and get on with her mother, who really doesn't understand Fee's decision to be manless! Sounds like your typical "find Mr Right when you're not looking for him" message? Don't be fooled! This book is more about the other women, not men, in Fee's life, and how they live with and without their respective other halves. It's also about the grass always being greener on the other side of the marital fence, with nobody seeming really happy being single or attached. This makes the book sounds like a really depressing read, full of miserable people, which couldn't be further from the truth! The characters are mainly a likable bunch, all trying to get on with life as it is for them. There's also quite a few twists and turns in the plot along the way to keep you interested and amused right to the end. All in all, a good book for relaxing with, a light amusing read that you'll probably recognise at least a couple of your friends in (and maybe even yourself!).
