Description:
He Said, She Said is a 1991 romantic comedy starring Kevin Bacon, Elizabeth Perkins, Nathan Lane and Sharon Stone.

Synopsis

It is the story of the relationship between journalists Dan Hanson (Bacon) and Lorie Bryer (Perkins) twice – once from each perspective. The man's story was directed by Ken Kwapis and the woman's by Marisa Silver. At the time, Kwapis and Silver were engaged and they married soon after the film was released.

Dan and Lorie are rival editorial page contributors at the Baltimore Sun. The rivalry between the conservative Dan and liberal Lorie eventually leads to a TV series where both present their opposing views on various topics such as abortion, sexual harassment, and gay rights. As Dan and Lorie get to know each other, they discover they have feelings for each other.

Legacy

In the 2001 book Spreading misandry, authors Paul Nathanson and Katherine K. Young highlight the film as what they see as an example of misandry- bigotry against men- in American popular culture. They write that the film contains highly stereotypical views of men and women such as in the lines "I thought all women love weddings" and "You men are all alike". They then argue that, in the film's ending, Lorie seems to give up less of her prior lifestyle compared to Dan such that the film implies "men need women more than women need men".
