Goofs

At various moments, you can tell that Laura San Giacomo's recordings were done after the scripting of the rest of the movie had already finished. Lee Arenberg's character, Noel, who is working to solve her Shakespeare quotes, refers to her as "pal" at one point and also says, "May the best man win" about her. This implies that this "character" San Giacomo was playing was originally supposed to be a male. Further proof of this is that Noel and the recordings of Goad (San Giacomo) are never shown on screen at the same time. See more »

Perhaps the worst film I've ever seen.
7 October 2001 | by (NJ) – See all my reviews

If you manage to get through the entire film and give it more thought than it warrants, you may find seeds of what could have been a good film scattered throughout.

Sandra Bernhard did a fair job with her leading role, only to be let down by the rest of the cast, the writing, directing, and effects (I suppose the sets were passable). Laura San Giacomo gives possibly the worst performance, completely over the top spouting incoherent snatches of Shakespeare. It appears that her part was filmed later and edited in, as she never interacts with the other actors and the "hacker" uses male pronouns when referring to her and her image.

This seemed as if several amateurs each directed a couple randomly-selected scenes without regard to each other's work, as characters are played very differently in adjoining scenes with no sense of development. The film ends suddenly and poorly, as if someone with an eye to the budget yelled "Cut, print!" the instant that the money ran out.

Perhaps this film itself was a salvage operation, where the shoot terminated prematurely and the studio edited whatever had already been filmed into something they could release upon an unsuspecting public.
