What Women Want

Revealing mistake: When Mel Gibson is in Marisa Tomei's apartment he goes to the WC to talk with his "little friend". He just got out of her bed and he is supposed to be naked. While sitting on the toilet he is filmed from the waist up but you can clearly see on the left corner of the screen that he is wearing a dark piece of underwear.

Revealing mistake: When Mel Gibson races out of his agency to catch his own taxi to find Judy Greer, the taxi begins to signal it is going to pull over even before he whistles or gestures to it. There is no one already in the taxi so it would have had no other reason for pulling over. (01:42:05)

Revealing mistake: When Nick drops the blowdryer, and it's moving in slow motion toward the tub, why is the blowdryer casting shadows on the ceiling directly above the tub? That would mean there are lights either in the tub or on the floor right next to it. (00:29:00)

Continuity mistake: At the beginning, when Lauren Holly is explaining about her ex-husband, the little boy has a photo taken with all the girls. The woman on the far left opens her jacket in a flasher style, but in the actual picture, her hands are on her hips.

Trivia: The fictional childhood of Nick, growing up in a burlesque club surrounded by beautiful, nearly naked women who adored him, is bizarrely similar to the actual childhood of Alan Alda, who plays the boss character. Alan Alda's father ran a burlesque club, and apparently the strippers and dancers treated the young Alda as a mascot, even keeping him in the changing room as they got dressed. However, as an adult Alda became an activist for feminist causes, rather than the chauvinist effect it had on the fictional Nick.
