The lighting during the scene by the lake when Sabrina, completely naked and wet and hiding behind Peter to shield herself from the boy scouts, changes from shot to shot, at some points being early morning and in other shots being late afternoon. Sabrina's messy wet hair is also inconsistent during this scene. See more »

The attempt is there...but the results aren't even mixed
Handsomely-produced 1940s throwback has two modern-day reporters for rival Chicago newspapers both covering a train-wreck, eventually teaming up to get all the shady details. Casting Julia Roberts and Nick Nolte in the leads might've been a gamble that paid off, but the ruff-n-bitchy chemistry they try to create doesn't click, mainly because the lines in the script are so stale. The picture looks expensive, and the plot isn't a con (I suppose it is fully thought out), but who even wants to see Julia Roberts in a Tracy-Hepburn knock-off like this? And who wants to see her kissing Nick Nolte? The whole concept is, well, Troubled. *1/2 from ****
