Trivia

When Wolff wakes Chalmers, she has been reading a copy of R.U.R. in her bed. This is the famous 1920 science fiction play which first introduced the word "robot". This presages the fact that Chalmers is later revealed to be an android. See more »

Goofs

When Wolff takes Niki with him in his car for the the first time, he opens the door during the ride in a close shot towards the end of the scene. In the very next shot - a wide shot - the roof is closed again. See more »

Quotes

Nicki: Y'know, there's room for two in there, if they was cozy.
Wolff: Well, we ain't cozy.

I really like it
8 September 2001 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

I don't know why the other commenters seem to not like it much. This is one of my favorite movies. I saw it in the theatres when it came out and several times on video since then, and the reason I came here was that I was looking around for a DVD with it. The campiness works perfectly fine for me. I very much enjoyed Molly Ringwald and Michael Ironside, and most of the other characters. Overall I can't think of anything I didn't think worked about it. Its very entertaining.
