The Computer Graphics Were Ahead Of The Times
21 August 2002 | by (Arlington, Texas) – See all my reviews

The computer graphics for this movie were ahead of the times. Rent "Getting Even" and find out what the crew was referring to when they mentioned, "The Green Pickle".

PS... Having lunch every day with Audrey Landers was fun too.
