When Jill is being examined, she is told she is nine weeks pregnant. However, the baby shown on the ultrasound scan screen is clearly much more than nine weeks old. Furthermore the movements of the ultrasound probe do not correspond to the movements on the screen. And when the doctor says she will make measurements she never does. Instead she just waits a few seconds before announcing the age of the fetus. See more »

Worst Critics ever?
26 June 2013 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

I just watched this movie which is 14 years old and I've never heard of it maybe because of the 5.1 score on IMDb. I have never EVER been more in disagreement with this site. This is not a 5/10 rated movie should be much closer to 7/10 don't know what people are thinking to be honest. The actors in it should alone be worth a 7. and i must say they did not disappoint at all so i don't know why people vote it 5. that was all i had to say but have to write 10 lines. Well Worth a watch if u haven't allrdy. im just filling out space now. gogo watch it. very hard to write 10 lines about something i could write in 1 line critics are WRONG! this is at least 7/10 in my opinion i have watched movies with 8+ that was worse then this so.
