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>

Quite fun
31 October 2007 | by See all my reviews

This film was quite fun. It is similar in some respects to a more recent swathe of this genre specialising in over the top humour, but in this case without completely loosing a sense of normality. For example in a later film by Gary Sinyor called "The Bachelor", an army of brides chase the leading man. In this film there are some 'situations' like this, the hostage taking for example. The difference here though is that the scenes do not depart entirely from reality because the incredible side of the situation remains connected more or less entirely with the roles of each part. In other words it is the characters who see the extraordinary and incredible as opposed to in other films where the viewer sees the same as 'matter of fact' e.g. 1000 women in wedding dresses. Personally I prefer this in some ways though typically the other, near slapstick lunacy has its place. Notably in this particular case it is not simply because the plot is therefore more down to earth and as a result engaging but also that it makes sense in terms of the subject matter; being able to read minds has little bearing on the solitude of love and then the crazy situations we can find ourselves in when attempting to pursue the object of one's affection.

Another review on IMDb points out that the leading lady appears to have a chip on her shoulder. There is a reason for this which should be fairly straight forward to pick up,.. as the cover and tag line perhaps indicate she has esp and is surrounded by men with rather lurid thoughts. This facet of the story is used to create fantastically embarrassing situations which overall appear to be applied in order that the viewer can draw a better picture of how the character thinks.

While this film is not really anything truly special I spent quite some time looking for a way to obtain the soundtrack to this film. I really like the saxophone solo and some of the other instrumental parts. Unfortunately I could not find it and contacting David A. Hughes directly is not as easy as popping to a music store.
