When the cops confront Lenny at the impound lot, they ask him for the disc. He pulls ii out of his briefcase and shuts it, but never snaps it closed. In the next shot when the dog bites the cops leg, Lenny is seen picking up the magically snapped shut case and running off. See more »
This pathetic film has a terrible time distinguishing which of its plot lines is the primary one. Fiennes is wasted, Lewis is abysmally petulant and annoying, and Bassett endures a non-sequitorial, thinly-veiled reference to the then topical Rodney King beating. What's more, the script seems to have been intended for the most thick-headed viewers of the world, as it continually and explicitly spells out exactly where the plot is going, which is nowhere fast.
What an utter waste of film. It shocks me that the overall Imdb rating of this movie is so high (over 7.0).
