Trivia

Jennifer Lopez had to screen test for the part of Karen Cisco. The scene chosen was the intimate one between Lopez and George Clooney in the trunk of a car, enacted on a couch at Clooney's home. Lopez later joked that that was her only brush with the casting couch. See more »

Goofs

If Karen Sisco had fired a gun in the enclosed volume of a car trunk, she probably would have blown out her ear drums. See more »

One of the best films of the 90's
29 February 2004 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

Great film. The characters seemed believable. The dialog well written, sharp, but not overly polished, no character has a monologue. How often in the 90's do we see a thriller, or crime mystery, or a buddy film, all components the film plays with, and would consider a discussion about the script? Leonard has a way with the practical aspects of crime, the fist fight and shoot outs are awkward, characters miss their mark more often than not, they run out of gas. How often in an action film does the hero miss a shot? I'm sick to death of wildly unbelievable stories, huge explosions and car chases. The photography is very well done and the soundtrack is fantastic. Of particular note is the editing, of which the film received an oscar nomination. One of the best love scenes in a contemporary film. What you hope you get with an adult crime movie, sleek, smart and sexy.
