Quotes

Claudine Van Doozen: You know, I had this science teacher once, when I was back in junior high school. I spent the entire year ignoring the man. Except that there was one thing that he said that I will always, always remember. He talked about this law. You know, this 'law' that governed the whole, wide universe. The way it worked is that, all things that mattered would be returned. You know, that matter itself isn't created or destroyed. It just lasts forever. We may not recognize them anymore, but they come back.
Claudine Van Doozen: [...]

Christina does a great job, in an otherwise lackluster film.
28 February 1999 | by (San Jose, CA, USA) – See all my reviews

Christina Applegate put in a great performance in her interpretation of the role of Claudine. The rest of the movie did not support her performance, however. The plot was weak, with the only substantive storyline occurring in the first 15 mins., and the last 15 mins. The rest of the movie could have been cut, and the audience would not have missed much. Tibaldi's direction used a lot of close shots, and free camera work, that actually detracted from the story. In scenes where the audience might have wanted to pay attention, we were getting distracted by the edgy camera motions. There were a number of subplots that never played into the story, and ended up like flotsam on a beach, with no purpose.
