Goofs

When Preston calculates the time required to accumulate one million dollars from the birthday check, the answer is in error by several times. The movie shows the time as 342,506 years. If the interest is calculated yearly, it should take 338 years, or monthly it should take 331 years and 7 months. See more »

An Ok film.
10 June 2003 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

Just saw it on the TV. I thought it was a pretty OK film.

I think the scene with the sprouting(?) water was pretty cool. I don't know why people and critics are dissing it though. Come on now, it's only entertainment.
