Storyline

A young man discovers that not only does he have the ability to read minds, but that if he holds a camera next to his head he can transmit the thoughts he sees onto film. He strikes a deal with a wealthy businessman to use his powers but with two conditions: one is that he'll make enough money for a sex-change operation, and the other is that under no circumstances are his powers to be used for military purposes. Things don't work out quite the way he planned. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

I wish I could find this movie again.
8 August 1999 | by (NJ, USA) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie once, and I remember laughing so hard at it. It has that "crescendo of awfulness" that I can't resist. I watched it alone that first time, and I want to see if anyone else would be struck by it the same way.
