What Women Want | 2000 | PG-13 | - 7.3.5

A rich male chauvinist (Mel Gibson) obtains the power to read the minds of women, and opts to use such power to improve his relationships with the women in his life. Also with Helen Hunt, Lauren Holly, Alan Alda, Marisa Tomei, and Bette Midler. [2:05]

SEX/NUDITY 7 - Lots of sexual innuendo, including references to homosexuality, fellatio, and penis size; also, some references to a fifteen year old girl thinking about having sex for the first time. A few kissing scenes (one time the kissing is very passionate). A bare-chested man lies on top of a woman in a slip and bra, kissing her passionately and grabbing her breast briefly (it's implied they are having intercourse but no thrusting is seen); during the scene, we hear the woman's thoughts about penis size and how the man is doing. Teenagers are caught making out on a couch; both of their clothes are disheveled, the girl's bra is on the floor (her father finds it), and the boy is on top and it appears that his hand is going up her shirt. A man slaps a woman's clothed behind in two separate scenes (two different couples), a woman looks at a man's clothed crotch and he thrusts his hips at her, and a man makes a masturbating gesture and a friend acts as if the fluid has spurt in his eye. A man puts money in a showgirl's cleavage. We see a man sitting nude (his genitals are covered), scantily clad Vegas showgirls (no complete nudity is visible), a man's bare chest in a couple of scenes, and cleavage in a few scenes (with men noticing).

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - Mostly played for laughs: A man has his leg waxed twice, and each time he yells, falls backwards and hits a wall. A man with a hair dryer falls into a bathtub and is jolted by an electric shock (he's not electrocuted but is knocked out). He receives another non-fatal electric shock during a lightning storm while he's standing on his balcony. A man is nearly hit by car and later by a bicycle. A woman crunches the heel of her boot into a man's foot. A woman threatens a man with a tennis racquet.

LANGUAGE 5 - A man begins to say an F-word but doesn't get past the first letter, many scatological references and anatomical references, some mild obscenities.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
