A role tailor made for Mel Gibson and the actor slips into the role with ease, but the script does not do him any justice by constantly being weighed down by its formula. However, the movie is still not bad, its just that the formula means that they just have to end the fun after some time and resort to melodrama.
As the line above suggests, it's about a man named Nick who's gone through life thinking he's God's gift to women, only to find that he's anything but. The reality check changes him, probably for the better, at least that's what the movie would want you to believe right?
It's a good film and there's plenty of things to like about it. It's not one I'll want to fire up every weekend but for casual viewing it does just fine. As a film released right around the time that advertising was changing precisely as depicted, it seems very timely.
