Goofs

When Ted meets 'Bill' at the shopping mall at the end of the movie, he calls him 'Benji', his real name. In an earlier scene, Ted had learned from Ann that Bill is a cop, but he left the house before she told him anything else. Thus, Ted wouldn't be able to know that Bill's real name is Benji.

Great Movie
10 June 2005 | by See all my reviews

This is one of Ron Howard's first movies as a director, if not the first. There is little wonder why he has become so popular.

I have watched No Man's Land in excess of 20 times. It is still one of my favorites. It has a solid cast, an excellent script, and great car chase scenes (with Porsches) that make this movie a winner.

Do yourself a favor and watch it. The cars and music are dated but, like watching Bullitt with Steve McQueen, the movie is well put together so you just get absorbed in along with the characters.

Charlie Sheen is charismatic and exiting. Brad Pitt apparently is in the movie as a waiter, but I have yet to notice him. Maybe I'll throw it in again and see if i can spot him.
