With time, however, he becomes more sensible and understanding of women, using his power to generally be nicer and more helpful. In the middle of all that, his power allows him to also notice and progressively help [[Creator/JudyGreer Erin the File Girl]].

* TheUnfairSex: The movie has been criticized by some viewers for unfair in the way it portrays men. The film's two messages seem to be "Men are too stupid and lazy to understand women" and "Anytime there's a problem in a relationship between a man and a woman, it's always the man's fault."
