Did You Know?


Based on the novel by Warren Adler, the film rights were obtained soon after the novel's release in 1984. However the film then languished in "development hell" for 15 years. In the 1980s, Dustin Hoffman was attached to star in the film but later withdrew as he did not like the earlier drafts of the script. By the 1990s, Kevin Costner was attached to star and James L. Brooks was attached to direct it, though this never came to fruition either. Eventually, Harrison Ford and Sydney Pollack showed interest in the project and it finally went into production.

When Kay receives the belongings of her deceased husband Callan, the clothes bag and the leather briefcase are in pristine condition, though they have been in the sea for several days. It is also unlikely, that the gift wrapped jewelry case Jessica found from her father's luggage, could have survived in the sea without any visible damage. See more »


TV Reporter at Hospital: How would you characterize your relationship with the sergeant.
Kay Chandler: The sergeant's wife was killed on the plane that went down with my husband. I met the sergeant a few days after that day. He was a friend when I needed a friend. I hope he feels the same way.
TV Reporter at Hospital: So you're just friends?
Kay Chandler: Just friends? We are surely friends. We've seen each other through something... We're more than friends. We're survivors.

Drama, Romance, a little Sex, a little Action Good Acting; Saw Twice.
29 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

True, there are some goofs, for the one who wants to find them. They're not important, though.

The primary feature of this film is watching veteran expert actors do their craft. Kristin Scott Thomas is beautiful and plays well the part of a strong woman, but one who has been hurt. Same for Harrison Ford, who, for the ladies, is just as beau as Kristin is belle for us guys.

Their hurt at the hands of their adulterous spouses brings them together in an awkward manner, but one in which they find support in each other. How they evoke their hurt feelings and their humanity within on th screen is why these are such sought performers. The viewer cannot help but feel what they feel, nor can one help wanting to cheer them when they're together.

Yes, there are several action scenes involving angry corrupt cops, but they only spice it up a little, and are not a significant part of the movie.

For the lover of music, Dave Grusin provides a superb Jazz based background, featuring trumpeter Terrence Blanchard. Like the actors, Grusin shows why he is one of the most sought musical consultants in the movie business. Blanchard shows why he's one the premiere trumpeters on the scene.

Not a movie for the lovers of guts, blood, and gore. But for those who want to see a lot of what makes us feel inside, watch a beautiful English actress with big expressive blue eyes who can act, like Harrison Ford, to the endless soothing accompaniment courtesy of Dave Grusin and Terrence Blanchard, this is a move to watch with someone you love. Preferably in bed.

I thought it deserved at least an 8.
