In what would have been her big break, Gwenyth Paltrow originally auditioned for the lead role Josie, that eventually went to Halle. Paltrow didn't get the part, because the director felt she wasn't convincing enough. See more »
When Tony is being stalked by Cole, Tony stops at an ATM. We see Cole's truck pass Tony's empty car, and there are no vehicles in the background. A few seconds later, we see the same shot of the empty car, but now, instead of being in front of Tony's car, where it should be, Cole's truck is parked in a parking lot in the background of the shot.

It would appear that the writers of this rather muddled movie were in a big rush to get the script in. They borrowed elements of a number of movies, including the two in my summary, patched them together and voila. Instant movie.
Don't get me wrong, this movie isn't a total loss. If you just consider the acting, we have two standouts. Peter Greene as one of the vilest villains I've seen in a while, and Clea Lewis as the greedy, vindictive wife of the best friend.
Let's not forget Halle Berry. No, let's not. Her acting is always credible, even when she's forced to recite lines like these. And I can assure you she is as adorable in person as she is on screen. I worked with her on a mini-series called "The Wedding" some years ago. She was pleasant, professional, cheerful, friendly, and beautiful. Gee, I almost sound like I'm gushing, but I have worked a lot of movies with a lot of actors, and she really did stand out.
All in all, I don't think you can lose by spending a little time with this movie, but I have to warn you: There are more plot holes in it than there are pot holes in Jersey City.
