Did You Know?

Goofs

The plot of this film takes place in Santa Monica, CA. The killer's van shows blue California plates. When the van is parked on the top level of the parking structure, a police cruiser with two officers shows up. As they leave they check the plates, we see a white California plate with plate number instead of the blue plate shown on front and back as the van is moving. Also, the plate numbers/letters don't even come close to looking like the font CA uses on their plates. See more »

Eric Roberts Terrorizes John Ritter
5 July 2010 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

"Corporate executive Tom Williams (John Ritter) and his beautiful wife Gina (Rachel Hunter) take a much needed family vacation to sunny California. Unfortunately, they end up in the sights of Eddie (Eric Roberts), a career criminal, and his violent crew of kidnappers looking for their next mark. The crooks earn Tom's trust, get his guard down, and snatch Gina and their children. If Tom ever wants to see his family again, he must pay Eddie $1.2 million, his entire net worth. With only one day to comply and no one to turn to for help, Tom is in a race against time, with his family's lives at stake," according to the DVD sleeve.

That is an excellent description of the "Tripfall" plot, but doesn't give you any idea about how painful it is to watch this "family in peril" movie. It could be the worst to feature two fairly well-known names - those being Eric Roberts and John Ritter. They are so mismatched, it's pathetic. If Mr. Ritter were in shape, they could have exchanged roles; then, the actors might have made it more interesting. For the record, most others in the cast are better; though, admittedly, that's not difficult to say. For skin trackers, Katy Boyer wears a barely there pink bikini in extreme close-up, and the topless bar scene occurs early.
