Trivia

In Mr. Lowery's office the following exchange is heard: CASSIDY (to Marion): You should take a vacation in Las Vegas, playground of the world! MARION: Thank you, but I think I'll spend this weekend in bed. CASSIDY: Only playground to beat Las Vegas. The last sentence was in the original script used by Alfred Hitchcock for Psycho (1960), but he had to cut it due to the censors. Gus Van Sant put it into Psycho (1998) as Hitchcock originally intended. See more »

Marion Crane: I better get back to the office. These extended lunch hours give my boss excess acid.
Samuel 'Sam' Loomis: Why don't you call your boss and tell him you're taking the rest of the afternoon off? Its Friday, anyway - and hot.
Marion Crane: What do I do with my free afternoon? Walk you to the airport?

Anne Heche is so bad...
12 September 2001 | by (Austria) – See all my reviews

First of all: To remake a Hitchcock movie is a really bad idea. Maybe if you make another adaption of the idea behind the movie or something like this, but to remake shot for shot is really a waste of time. This makes the movie bad enough, but the director added some lousy actors to make this movie really a stinker: Anne Heche will make you scream in pain! First of all she looks totally unattractive with her ultra-short hair, her odd mimicks and odd way of dressing in this movie. The actor who play Norman only gets on ones nerve with his unbearable nervous ticks. The only good actor was the guy who played Marions boyfriend (Vigor Mortensen I think was his name): he is really hot-looking, altough his hairstyle is somehow unfitting. The shower scene is simply boring, but the relief to see Heches last scene in the movie is quite big. That they where to lazy to compose a new score and just revamped the old one which only clashes with the new images, is also quite ridiculous in my opinion. Avoid it, watch the original.
