Meet Nick Marshall (Mel Gibson). A successful advertising Exec, Nick has the world and its women at his fingertips. Or so he thinks. The world of advertising is fast becoming a woman's world and slick-talking, chauvinistic, womanising Nick is out of touch. Enter Darcy McGuire (Helen Hunt). Darcy is hired by the ad agency as Nick's superior to bring a woman's perspective to the waning firm, in a bid to win new clients from the untapped women's market But Nick's problems are just beginning. To his dismay, a freak accident allows Nick to hear the thoughts of all the women around him. After consulting a psychiatrist (Bette Midler), he decides to use his new-found ability to his advantage, both professionally and personally. But Darcy McGuire is no pushover and romance inevitably gets in the way.

From the dance routine to the encounter with pantie-hose, Mel Gibson is superb. There's real chemistry between he and Helen Hunt. Their sheer energy seems to infect everyone involved. Its pace is non-stop and the action hilarious. See this film at least once before the end of the world.
