Perhaps the filmmakers intended to enhance the solipsistic nature of the situation, but the effect is the impression of simple incompetence.
The Man on Her Mind, a mirthless, stagy romantic comedy about a pair of New York loners, isn't so much a story as a threadbare concept - a one-liner, really. An old, used-up one at that.
Ping-Ponging dialogue and arch pop-lite refrains strain to delineate portraits of insular, articulate and bourgeois neurosis.
How do we know when we're truly living authentic lives, or have fully given ourselves over to passion and trust with another? It wouldn't occur to most romantic comedies to ask those questions. "The Man On Her Mind" answers them.
The Man on Her Mind, a belabored, un-whimsical romantic comedy, is a case study of what can go wrong when adapting a stage play into a movie.
The Man on Her Mind has a terminal case of the cutes.
Cutesiness carried to nauseating extremes.
The film suggests an ineffectual mishmash of Ruby Sparks-ish high concept and modern Elizabethan comedy.
