This movie can be summarize as the last great performance of Mel Gibson. He is amazing, witty, funny and charming even when he is the misogynistic chauvinistic guy who turns into this romantic man. Wonderful to watch.

I like mel Gibson better in forever young, but in general this movie was funny. Though the examples of what woman think about in this movie are not true, in my life at least. But i guess it's part of what makes the movie funny.

I don't like this movie and I also didn't like the remake. And for some reason I've seen this movie more than once and every time I've seen it I've never liked it. This movie also dated itself severely.
