But as far as romantic comedies go, it’s a little over-the-top. It’s almost like the role would have been better served by Jim Carey (a la Liar Liar). Maybe he was in the running for this.
Conceptually speaking, what guy wouldn’t want to be able to read minds? Well, there would have to be an on/off switch. Otherwise, we would probably go crazy. We’re not designed to deal with that many thoughts at once.
