Did You Know?


Drummond Avery (Nick Nolte) is a state senator of an undisclosed state. The term of office and district represented are unknown. 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 »

Wonderful mixed metaphors
19 August 2000 | by See all my reviews

Brilliant mixed metaphors, fabulous dialogue. I can see how someone may not like it if they don't get or don't like word play, but if you like a good turn of phrase I highly recommend it! Huzzah for John Binder, whoever he is, not much on his resume, I can't wait for the next script!
