(mbc.net) Hal Larson is a ladies' man deemed superficial by his peers. 

He never dates women unless they are a perfect ten, and cannot comprehend the idea of inner beauty superseding physical attractiveness. 

That changes when he meets self-help guru Tony Robbins, who hypnotizes Hal to ignore good looks, and judge women solely upon their intelligence and personality. 

Soon he falls for Rosemary Shanahan, an overweight woman who finally causes Larson to abandon one night stands. 

Unfortunately, Hal's best friend Mauricio is concocting a plan to split them apart.
