Goofs

When Angela Bennett gets her temporary visa using the name Ruth Marx, the lady shows her the form and asks her if that was the correct address, Angela nods and says it is but Ruth Marx is not her name. Presumably she didn't notice it, since her attention was drawn to the address portion. See more »

Quotes

[Angela, who already sent the incriminating info to the FBI at the last second, is approached and caught by Devlin and Marx]
Jack: [shoves Angela over] Get away from the computer. What did think you were trying to do? Save the world?
Angela Bennett: No. Not the world. Just myself.
Jack: Ah, I'm afraid it's too late for that. The offer's been withdrawn.
Angela Bennett: Um, you might wanna look at the screen, because everything on that disk was just sent to the FBI. Everything.
Jack: So?

Flimsy, far-fetched, but spunky and attractive
11 May 2002 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Sandra Bullock is very appealing as an unloved independent systems analyst who unknowingly gets hold of a disk that could bring worldwide chaos; pretty soon, she's dodging bad guys, running from the cops and putting her allies in danger (including Dennis Miller, who is surprisingly good). Despite a penchant for filming mouths in close-up, Irwin Winkler has directed a very fast, fun technical-thriller in which charming Bullock is bounced from one nightmare to another. I loved the way she gets out of a building swarming with security: she dons a fireman's outfit and escapes, but then the bad guys see a nicely piled fireman's outfit (and helmet!) sitting on the sidewalk and yell, "She's getting away!" Just one example of how this movie is so completely brainless, but yet entertaining enough on a non-think level that you tell yourself not to notice. You'll hate yourself in the morning, though. **1/2 from ****
