Trivia

Robert Conrad was initially approached by Barry Sonnenfeld to make a cameo appearance as President Ulysses Simpson Grant. He turned down the offer after reading the script due to what he felt was its poor quality and lack of respect for the original series it was based on. See more »

Goofs

Loveless' wheeled vehicle was referred to as a tank, but the name "tank" for such a vehicle wasn't coined until the British used it as a cover name in the First World War. See more »

Quotes

Capt. James West: I thought I'd go as a government agent who's going to shoot and kill General Bloodbath McGrath.

This Movie Was A Mistake
21 August 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I think this movie was a mistake. Will Smith was miscast as the lead. Kenneth Branaugh gave an over the top performance. The rest of the cast performed adequately. However, overall the production was overdone. There were a few amusing moments and amazingly, the film made over $199 million dollars worldwide.

I wondered why some of the users made such scathing comments about the lead, Will Smith. It seems that the protestations were overly vehement and even offensive. I find too often this is the typical response to TV comedians making the transition to film. I think TV comedians get a bad rap when making the transition to film.

Anyway, although I agree that the film is lacking in many respects, there is no need to bash the lead, namely Will Smith, who has proven that he is growing as an actor.
