Did You Know?


In the novel and the earlier version of the film, Seven Days in May (1964), the character played here by Forest Whitaker was named Martin "Jiggs" Casey. The nickname, which in the context of an African-American actor was a racial epithet, was clearly inappropriate and was not used. See more »


When Mac Casey meets Sarah McCann in the plaza, we hear the band playing the "Liberty Bell March" but the conductor is obviously directing a much slower piece of music. See more »

Piece of Garbage remake of a classic
10 January 2000 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This is a terrible, dumbed down, remake of John Frankenheimer's SEVEN DAYS IN MAY with Forest Whitaker in the Kirk Douglas role and Jason Robards in the Burt Lancaster role. The story follows the assistant to the commander of the joint chiefs of staff as he uncovers a plot to overthrow the government. Neither Whitaker nor Robards seem comfortable in their uniforms or seem to understand their roles as officers. The insultingly simplified plot is spoon fed to the audience and delivered with inane dialog. Unlike the original, none of the plot makes a damn bit of sense and the final resolution is so unbelievable that it seems a fitting end to this mess. It's as if a first grader saw the first film and typed out his own version.
