Stephen Lang enjoyed working with costar Brittany Murphy so much, he later tried out and was cast as Sheriff Brent Marken in Cherry Falls (2000). Scheduling conflicts prevented him from playing the role and the part eventually went to veteran actor Michael Biehn. Lang later admitted the only reason he wanted to be in the film was because he would have gotten to work with Murphy again. See more »
It was posted that the senator served the entire state not districts. He was a "state" senator not federal so he would be representing districts, not the entire state. The goof post should be removed as it is, in fact a "goof" itself. See more »
Give her a chance, she'll steal your heart and soul
This movie has grown on me immensely. The first time I saw it, it struck me poorly. I didn't like the plot or characters. I've seen it twice since then. I was surprised to find how funny it was a second time. Truth be told, Trixie is the sweetest detective ever written. She's obsessed with the truth and lives by no other code, solving the case almost by accident. There is a sexy all star cast to back her up and they all play magnificently. The real joke of the movie is Trixie's ability to get well known sayings wrong, which is explained by her injury as a child from a bowling ball on the head (mentioned very quickly in a hospital scene). She says things like, "Stop right there where you are in your tracks!" Her timing is perfect and Ms. Watson's performance is endearing. Good show, all around.
