Trivia

Was delayed from a planned Christmas 1996 release due to troublesome test screenings. This led to several reshoots, which expanded on the relationship between Alicia Silverstone and Benicio Del Toro's characters. See more »

Goofs

At the end of the movie, when Vincent closes the trunk of the Cadillac Deville with his leg, there is a distinctive latching sound of the trunk. Cadillacs do not make such a sound since they have a motorized trunk-closing mechanism which closes the trunk silently when the deck lid is closed gently. It is impossible for a Cadillac to make such a sound as the one in the movie (unless it was modified). See more »

Not as bad as all that
19 December 2001 | by (Houston) – See all my reviews

Not as bad as some people make it out to be. Alicia Silverstone is as beautiful as ever. And Christopher Walken played his typecast dangerous dude role the way he always does. Yes, the plot had some good sized holes in it. The film is meant to be light entertainment and it made that mark. That doesn't mean it's great or anything. I couldn't recommend spending money on this unless you're a hard-core Silverstone fan. But if it comes on cable, it's an OK hour and forty. Grade: C-
