Other than five scenes - the death scene at the gas station in the beginning, the funeral scene at the end, the scene where the ambulance attendants get paid by the mortuary owner, the scene where Dina walks in on Danielle and Sarong Girl, and the bar scene near the beginning - no scene in the movie has more than two actors in it.

Goofs

When Alan confronts Janet in her apartment, Janet switches positions mid-scene. In one shot she is standing in the doorway of her bedroom and in the very next shot she's in the middle of the room again. See more »

Looking for Dinah!
7 September 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie and thoroughly enjoyed it, however few today seem to know anything about it. Ever since I have had a VCR, I have looked for it on video and now I would like to have it on DVD. I am sure there would be a market for it if someone would release it!
