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>

Original and Charming
14 May 2016 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In London, the wolf Daniel Becker (Mark Frankel) prepares executives to have attitude based on their body language. His best friend is Harry (Jason Isaacs), who is married with a child with Caroline (Maryam d'Abo). The paleontologist Katie Burrough (Amanda Pays) researches with her Indian coworker Sandip Tamar (Roshan Seth) at the museum of London. Katie is a beautiful woman capable of reading minds and she creates problems with men everywhere since they are always thinking how desirable she is. When they meet each other, they have a date and Daniel falls in love with her. After many problems, she agrees to be blindfolded since she can not mind with her eyes covered. Daniel proposes Katie to get married but she is a dedicated scientist and together with Sandip, they have made a discovery and she needs to travel to India. What will she do?

"Solitaire for 2" is an original and charming romantic comedy where she gorgeous Amanda Pays performs the role of a woman capable to hear what other people is thinking. Mark Frankel shows great chemistry with Amanda Pays that is in the top of her beauty and despite the silly story, the film is a good entertainment. The stylish music score is magnificent since Daniel is fan of classical music. In 2000, "What Women Want" uses the storyline of capability to read minds in a successful film with Mel Gibson in the lead role. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Pensamentos Perigosos" ("Dangerous Thoughts")
