Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It should be called What Moviegoers Want, because it appeals to both sexes, without pandering to or demeaning either of them."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"Gibson keeps this movie afloat."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Though it isn't quite Oscar material, Mel Gibson gives what may be the most entertaining big-star performance of its year."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com
"...is there some clause written into [Helen Hunt's] contract that says she must have a scene in which she cries?"
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Lo que ellas quieren es una comedia ligera que narra lo que todos los hombres quisiramos saber: Qu rayos piensan las mujeres?"
‑ Luis Martinez, Cinenganos
"It's a romantic comedy with a distinctly modern, delicate but sharp, satirical cutting edge."
‑ Susan Stark, Detroit News
"English's attempts to fit The Women into a modern setting are intelligent, but that, unfortunately, does not suffice, because the film is so limp in so many other ways."
‑ Andy Klein, Los Angeles CityBeat
"What Women Want may seem like a one-note sitcom sort of movie, but it's funnier and a layer or two deeper than that."
‑ Judith Egerton, Courier-Journal (Louisville, KY)
"The premise for What Women Want sounds like, and is, the dumbest thing going."
‑ John R. McEwen, Film Quips Online
"Falha como comédia, como drama e como romance."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"For a while, anyway, it's very funny."
‑ Jay Boyar, Orlando Sentinel
"Mel Gibson is at his most megawatt movie star charming."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"Takes a promising idea and buries it under subplots and speeches that don't know when to quit."
‑ Jeffrey Westhoff, Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)
"Meyers finds exactly the right bubbly tone for the material then wisely steps out of the way to let Gibson and Hunt work their magic."
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
"The women are basically innocent victims of male piggishness… The men are all cads."
‑ Steven D. Greydanus, Decent Films Guide
