Edward Furlong was considered for the role of Izzy Singer. See more »


When the first news people chase Susan Sarandon's character to her car the camera's battery falls off. With a nod to continuity it stays off in the following shots of the scene. Factually though this would render the camera useless. The camera wouldn't work and since the viewfinder is electronic it would be dead, or blank. Even in the extremely unlikely event the cameraman didn't notice the weight and balance change of the battery having fallen off the camera's shutting off and being dead would have been noticed by the cameraman.

Very Entertaining.
27 December 2001 | by (Victoria, Australia) – See all my reviews

This film is very entertaining and should be watched by the whole family but you may not want your kids to watch it because of the Adult Themes and the little Language. The cast was well picked and they did a great job(Susan Sarandon and Nick Stahl)and Jason London was also good even though he played a minor part as one of Susan's character's sons. It tells a story of a mother with 7 sons who at night has a premonition dream that something has happened to one of her sons and the story unfolds from there. The film was just so touching but im not sure if it was rated M or PG so if it is PG you should let the whole family watch it. In conclusion to this review I give this film a 7 out of 10 because it deserves this rating and because it's a film for the whole family.
