Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The behavior of Fox and "Scully" really does seem a lot like things teenagers would do.

Con: The science experiments are way, way too powerful to believe. The mind-reading ice cream should guarantee that Fox and Scully both understand each other's feelings exactly, which makes the love-affair plot fall flat.
