Trivia

In 1997, Harrison Ford and Kristin Scott Thomas were announced to star in Age of Aquarius, a romance set during the Bosnian War, directed by Phil Alden Robinson. Universal killed the project due to its inflating budget, and the actors starred in this film together instead. See more »

Goofs

The news anchors delivering the news of the plane crash report that the airplane was a Boeing 737, and a short time later rescue boats and helicopters are seen surrounding the tail section of a 737 sticking out of the bay. However, in an earlier scene, a TV in the background shows a news report containing what we are led to believe is footage of the crash site, and the airplane in the news footage is a jet with rear-mounted engines and a horizontal stabilizer mounted at the top of the tail - not the 737 shown in the later scene but probably a McDonnell Douglas DC-9 or MD-80.

Quotes

Dutch Van Den Broeck: I wondered if you'd come.
Kay Chandler: Guy like you, girl like me. What reason could there be not to? Sorry I'm late.
[beginning to ramble]
Kay Chandler: I had to change a few times and pack. I thought - if I packed light, it'd look like I knew what I was doing. But I didn't know what I was doing, so I didn't know what to pack.

An intriguing story with a clever twist
27 February 2001 | by See all my reviews

I admit I have been a fan of Harrison Ford for many, many years now so it didn't surprise me that I enjoyed his performance here. But I also enjoyed the way the storyline developed and thought the casting was well done. I don't know whether I "buy into" Kristin Scott Thomas as a Congresswoman but she is a fine actress and a beautiful woman. I took notice of her in the first Mission Impossible. Although her part was small she stuck out on the screen.

Here her and Ford play people whose spouses are killed in an airplane crash. They are seated together and this is where the plot takes off. Apparently Ford, a police detective in Wash D.C., discovers that his wife was having an affair. He further discovers that the affair was with the husband of a New England Congresswoman.

The story takes on many subplots as Ford and Thomas find themselves drawn together by revelations of their marriages, the uncovering of deceipt, and the pure grief and anger over the loss of a loved one.

I think the movie is worthwhile either renting or catching on cable.
