Goofs

When Dennis walks into the police station about 30 minutes into the movie, the officer and clerk are at a computer terminal talking about his mother having Alzheimer's and his wife passing away when the son was 3. When Dennis asks where they are getting this information, the officer says law enforcement - NCIC and FBI. The NCIC is the National Crime Information Computer, and all it contains is criminal arrest or missing/wanted person data, such as name, date of birth, addresses, and offenses by charge and location (arresting agency). No personal family history is stored there. Ditto the FBI. An FBI number only means someone has been arrested for certain offenses or in multiple states. See more »

Corny Sci-Fi Action!
17 May 2000 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

If no one in Springville ever gets sick or gets old, why exactly is there a hospital there? Why not just truck sick people directly to the Spring? Kyle MacLaughlin plays "Dad" in his best Fred McMurray manner, right down to calling his son "sport" and "kiddo." I especially enjoy what happens when the Springvillians stop "drinking the water--" as they age, their skin takes on the texture of fried chicken. "What about the Great Depression-- was it really that depressing?!" A nice feelgood corny cheeseball thriller that you can watch late at night and pick on.
