When Alex is at the breakfast table and her dad is in the kitchen stomping out the burning toast, the blinds over the sink are clearly open as sunlight is shining through. However, right after Dr. Wallace leaves the room to get dressed and Alex steps in to clean up the mess the blinds are suddenly closed without either having touched them. See more »

28 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was filmed at the Houston Museum of Natural Science. There are a few glimpses of the sign in the front of the building and current Museum patrons will notice that the Planetarium is mysteriously disconnected (pre- grand hall) and the "side door" where the kids get back into the building after the building is locked down now leads to a ramp and into the parking garage. I am the Museum's Overnight coordinator now and have spent the night in this same museum many times

  • unfortunately there is no jin to be found... or is there?


Obviously we've updated the Museum a bit since this was filmed but if you grew up in Houston going to the Museum on field trips take a closer look at this movie for a good laugh. Don't worry - the laughs definitely continue as you examine the plot, dialog, special effects and fashion!

This movie is beloved by HMNS staff and we were especially excited to find out about the secret bathtub/snake room!
