Goofs

After Detective Shelia has asked for Elliot and he comes to her room, Elliot is telling her he wants to leave to go to the race. The leaves hanging behind Shelia appear and disappear with each camera change. As she sits down, you can see it's a vine hanging down to the wardrobe handle but the length changes as the scene plays out. See more »

An OK movie nowhere near as good (or bad) as it's defenders or detractors think
6 January 2001 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This is a movie that is okay and has a decent performance by Delaney and Ackroyd and the best role O'Donnell has had yet. There are those who hate this film and some who love it. Since it contains neither Pauly Shore nor Adam Sandler and not a trace of Bo Derek or Pia Zadora, it can't be as bad as so many think. It may not be Olivier doing Hamlet, but it beats Shatner playing Othello. Recommended for Dana Delaney and Rosie fans with the obligatory Hector Elizando appearance though he's done much better elsewhere.
