Good for a few laughs -- mostly unintentional ones
8 January 2006 | by See all my reviews

My husband and I happened upon this film last night. We were exhausted and would settle for "anything colour that moved." We had no idea what it was until we IMDb'd it. We are generally favourably disposed to Tommy Lee Jones so we gave it a go.

I am the Queen of Suspension of Disbelief but even in my tired state I just couldn't buy into this film. The actors looked like they were... um, acting. I could almost make out the director and his megaphone just off camera.

The best scene is where the two journalists arrive at Central Park and Valery is about to hop the wall and go in. She asks her colleague to help her over - but the wall is only about three feet high! My six-year-old son wouldn't need help getting over.

We were surprised not to find the following in the Memorable Quotes collection: "You get the commissioner on the line and I'll try to raise Dix."
