Trivia

Elmer Bernstein's score was recorded with The London Symphony Orchestra the very same orchestra in which all of John Williams' first three Star Wars trilogy scores were recorded with and also Trevor Jones' score to Jim Henson's The Dark Crystal (1982). Gary Kurtz was the producer of Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977), Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980) and The Dark Crystal, which was his first independent production after Empire Strikes Back.

See it just for Bob Peck
27 January 2000 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

I've liked this movie for years, and it is actually quite muddled and strange, it is difficult to understand, the performances are sometimes strained and overdone; and still it is charming. A lot of original ideas, some quiet, delicate, odd moments, and Bob Peck's performance make it really lovely in a certain way. Don't miss it if you enjoy movies that are outside the Hollywood box. It has a thing that is more than the sum of its' awkward parts.
