Did You Know?

Trivia

The name Adrian was dubbed. The dubbing was done by unknown actors because the studio could not afford to bring back the original actors, which explains the slight voice differentiation. Some words preceding the name Adrian were also dubbed for a more unnoticeable voice transition. See more »

Goofs

Early in the film, while talking about Nick's writing, Adrian notes, "You have such a terrible time with the objective case." Later, Adrian has her own trouble with the objective case when she says, "I think it's brought Nick and I a lot closer." She should have said, "I think it's brought Nick and me a lot closer."

Cheyenne: I knew she was making it up. I knew it.

sit back and enjoy
11 July 2001 | by (Edison, NJ) – See all my reviews

This movie has its faults but you can sit back and have fun watching it. It's slow at first. It's not suspenseful but it efficiently uses the short time of action to punch you with thrills. My adrenaline was rushing when Amy got stung by wasps. The direction is so precise that a certain number of seconds can leave you hanging off the sofa. Be careful if you're eating popcorn(or potato chips). You might end up drooling your food on the floor. Nick isn't that smart but I like him because he's nobody's fool. Aside from Cary Elwes and Alicia Silverstone, Kurtwood Smith(That 70's Show) also plays his part very well. The reversal of traditional sexual harassment and discrimination was also interesting.
