Factual errors: The Caltrans freeway cameras do not have "crane-shot" movement, as can be seen when they zoom in on the license plate. Those cameras only have the mobility of 360° rotation.See more »

As fake as the TV show, 2 November 1998
Author: anonymous from Junction City

This movie wasn't any better than the TV show. The whole movie seemed fake. They couldn't even come up with a fresh idea for the movie. If they had, maybe it would have been better. But I really doubt it. It would take a lot to improve this movie.
