After Mickey has proposed to Claudi, and immediately before he picks her up and carries her over to the sofa, Claudi says, "It was always you," but at the same time you can tell from the movement of her lips that she is in fact saying something completely different, and a much longer sentence.

Pretty bad, with a few (almost) redeeming parts
5 March 2007 | by (Houston) – See all my reviews

Yeah, this one is pretty bad overall, even though it has a few reasonably bright spots. Most of the characters are utterly moronic, and their motivations are anywhere from dumb to deranged. It was a bit interesting to see the Vietnamese thugs portrayed as broadly evil. I didn't think Hollywood allowed minorities to be portrayed negatively anymore, although Asians are a rather less-protected minority here than some others. (See the California university "affirmative action" programs, for example) D. B. Sweeny played the only character I've ever seen him do. (See Cutting Edge) Bridget Fonda was actually kind of good in this one, given the (extreme) limitations of the material. And it was interesting, if not particularly pleasant to see Cary Elwes playing against type as the villain. (Contrast with his nerdy character in The Crush) All in all, I'd suggest missing this one.
