Trivia

During filming of the lunch scene, Which was done at the Rock Creek Tavern West of Portland, Oregon. Tom Berenger was to eat a burger. After several takes with Berenger trying to take bite of the burger he could not keep a straight face because the burger was made by craft services and was terrible. The cook from the Rock Creek Tavern heard of the situation and made a "real" burger that Berenger could sink his teeth into. After that, filming wrapped for the day. See more »

Decent low-key comedy.
22 June 2004 | by (Houston) – See all my reviews

I saw this film referred to as a comedy, but I hadn't remembered it as such when I first saw it some years ago. I suppose that it is, but it is funny in a wry sort of way, never a laugh out loud way. I don't know where Tom Berenger got that gravelly voice for this movie, but it seems to fit the part okay. Elizabeth Perkins was lovely and good as an angst-filled gal trying to be a private I. It was interesting to see Neil Young in a small acting role. He did OK. It makes me wonder how hard acting really is. Anne Archer was so totally gorgeous, I almost didn't realize how ridiculous her character was. This ended up being a pretty enjoyable film, if you don't go into it with unrealistic expectations. Grade: B
