Brett (Guy Pearce), a friend of the host from Melbourne, has just landed a job as presenter of a TV gossip show. Tash (Claudia Karvan) is a science journalist for a national newspaper, studious, intense and self-conscious.They have nothing in common, so naturally they get it together.Each has to cope with the other's job and the demands on the opposite sex, and, of course, each develops a new understanding and appreciation of the other.

During the party on the ferry, when Guy Pearce is busted by Claudia Karvan telling the model that he has had a job offer from New York, the boat is clearly not moving.
Guy Pearce ("LA Confidential") as a woman with a man's body, minces as he did in "Priscilla, Queen of the Desert", and his opposite number, Claudia Karvan, catches assertive male body language beautifully.
At times, the joke seems a little over-extended, but it is good-hearted and good fun.
A year later and Brett's career is going well, there is the possibility of a job in New York and popularity has gone to his head.
