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

This is one of my favourite films. Although it seems it is not everyones cup of tea, and there are flaws, I thoroughly enjoyed it. After catching this on Sky, I scoured the country to get a copy on video.
Amanda Pays is lovely, even though her character appears spiteful at times. Her ability to read minds makes for a plot with amusing one liners, and results in some bizarre and comic events. Frankel's character, a master at body language, is exceptionally amusing placed in this plot where his expert ability to read thoughts - and to transmit them - through body language, is nullified by Katie's ESP.
The biggest flaw is where Katie at times can appear to read thoughts without seeing the person she's reading, although if you don't get caught up in the 'technicalities', it doesn't detract from the splendour of the film. It's a thought provoking film for anyone who ever thought "I wish I could tell what he/she is thinking", and perhaps even makes one analyse one's own thoughts".
DJ Steve Wright is quoted on the VHS cover as saying it's nearly as funny as Four Weddings and a Funeral. I didn't particularly like that film. I suspect our American friends may find it more amusing than most of the English. If you watch this film, think about the conflict between body language and thoughts.
