Advertising executive Mel Gibson is a shallow charmer who’s  brought down to earth when he’s passed over for promotion in favour of Helen Hunt.

Then, following a freak domestic accident, he suddenly has the ability to read women’s minds – which comes in very handy when dealing with his new boss.

However, as well as stealing Hunt’s ideas, he also discovers his caring, sharing side. Gibson keenly takes on everything that’s thrown at him, Hunt makes an elegant foil and their blossoming romance is deftly handled.
