Storyline

Katie can read minds. Being desirable, the male minds she reads are all thinking of one thing. She always responds by hitting them and storming off without explanation. Daniel is an expert in body language and interprets this as a sign she wants to be pursued. Since Daniel spends most of his time, when not terrorizing his students, pursuing women, Katie gets ever more exasperated that he is treating her exactly as he treats every presentable female from the motorcycle cop to the squeegee girl. She cannot read minds when her eyes are covered, or when minds are thinking in a foreign language, so she misinterprets Sandip's desire for hunger. She also holds Daniel responsible for his subconscious desire for his friend's wife (Caroline). Written by Stephen Rees <srees@sprynet.com>

Before I'd even watched half of this movie I decided that I hated it.
5 September 1999 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

The main character (played by Amanda Pays) is arrogant, boring, violent and has absolutely no respect for anybody's privacy. She claims that her ability to mind read is a curse, but I found it hard to sympathise with her considering that she'd have no qualms about exploiting her 'curse' for her own ends.

I like most of the romantic comedies that I've seen, but this movie is barely romantic and nowhere near as funny as it should be. This is a shame because the plot had the potential to be very entertaining.
