Did You Know?


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 »

Great showcase for our beloved John Ritter.
26 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Are you ready for a sunny California setting? Made in the year 2000, the movie's mood is a happy one at the beginning; and how we love John Ritter. Many times he made us laugh and feel good. Here he pleases again in a drama playing a nice, normal, millionaire dad and husband.

Rachel Hunter added a touch of class to the film with her delightful New Zealand accent and statuesque beauty. We found ourselves on the edge of our seats with excitement as the suspense started early on and never quit. Eric Roberts always wins when acting the bad boy; you will hate him and his small gang. We are glad we saw the DVD and recommend it for 16-Adult.
