Baltimore Sun
A frequently hilarious exercise in one sex desperately trying to figure out the other.

Chicago Sun-Times
If the movie is imperfect, it's not boring and is often very funny, as in a solo dance that Nick does in his apartment, to Frank Sinatra singing "I Won't Dance."

Entertainment Weekly
Gibson, in a disarmingly nimble, fast break performance, makes Nick's new hyperempathy look like the essence of virile panache.

USA Today
Yummy yet empty.

A winner.

New York Daily News
A merry romantic comedy in the screwball tradition.

Chicago Tribune
Delivers on the promise of its playful premise, thanks to some sly gender role reversals and Gibson's willingness to play along.
63
A wobbly fantasy that relies on the actor's mischievous energy and rakish charisma for its laughs.

New York Post
Adequately funny but predictable sitcom

Mr. Showbiz
As classic romantic comedy goes, it ain't no "Tootsie."

San Francisco Chronicle
The movie's gimmick for airing the contents of a woman's head is not unlike that used for the dogs and tots in those "Look Who's Talking" movies.
