Goofs

Jed said Tracey's blood group was AB negative. He would need to get donors in that type. In fact she could have been given any Rh negative blood type. Group O, A or B would be suitable for someone who is group AB (universal recipient). Only the Rh type (positive or negative) is important and then only to woman of child-bearing age. See more »

Very underrated.
7 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I gotta admit that at first glance, I thought this movie would be exactly what it appeared to be on the surface- boring. But with its dense plot, which is seriously full of twists and turns, this movie is a winner. Don't expect anything on the lines of the end of The Usual Suspects, but this movie provides many shocking moments. The end product could not be achieved without a slow build, but still this movie is one of the best suspense movies out there. I'm a big Bill Pulman fan and Nicole Kidman is always a treat to look at. In closing, you really should consider checking this one out, especially if you think the person you love isn't who they appear to be.
