Trivia

Director Richard Rush clashed with producer/financier Andrew Vajna over the final cut of the film. Rush wanted his longer, eccentric, cut to be released, but Vajna wanted the shorter, and more conventional, 121 minute version released. Vajna eventually got his way. See more »

Goofs

At one point during the first group session, Ritchie notices that Bill is wearing one green sock and one red, because Bill is blind to the color red. To Bill, only the red sock would be gray, and the other would still be green and he'd know they were mismatched. See more »

Willis bares his wiener!
16 April 2004 | by (WI.) – See all my reviews

Now, I know this is not even close to being Willis's best movie or role. I still thought this was a decent thriller. A good supporting cast with Brad Dourif(voice of Chucky, the best Horror icon ever!) & Lance Henriksen(who will star in just about anything these days) just to name a few.

I can understand why Jane March hasnt done much, she'll be type-cast as woman who takes clothes off alot. & yeah, this is as close to a porn flick as you can get, when it comes to big named actors in studio movies.

In my opinion, there are worse movies with Bruce Willis. This is worth seeing if you're in the mood for a adult-orientated suspense thriller...with quite alot of sex. & yes, ladies, You can see Bruce's winky in this too.
