Storyline

Steve Brooks is a sexist and the prototype macho. Unfortunately one day he is killed by one of his girlfriends. In heaven, though, there is no place for men like him and he is sent back to earth in the body of a woman so that he can see how women are treated by men like the one he once was.

a ladies man learns to really love
2 April 1999 | by (Broken Bow, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

A man who knows only how to use and discard women dies prematurely. He is offered acceptance into heaven only if he goes back to earth in the form of a woman and really loves someone. This was a very funny program; Ellen Barkin was wonderful as the man in a woman's body. The ending was a real tear jerker, so have a hanky ready. 5 stars.
