2000 Certificate: 12


Battle of the sexes comedy starring Mel Gibson as a womanising, chauvinistic advertising exec who acquires the ability to hear women's thoughts. Initially, it's the perfect chance to get one over on his new boss (Helen Hunt) - but the more he learns, the more he begins to care what the ladies think. Blessed with an on-form cast, the fun premise is wittily executed by director Nancy Meyers, the brains behind Private Benjamin and Something's Gotta Give.
