Did You Know?

Goofs

Dennis Burke grabs a newspaper and reads a headline, relevant to the plot, that indicates State Manhunt Widens. But if you pause the frame and read the text of the article below the headline, you see it is a bogus article about teenage curfew, totally unrelated to the headline. See more »

Nastassja Kinski's Talents Wasted
12 June 2000 | by (Denver) – See all my reviews

What a great cast and what a pathetic attempt at a film. The script is full of holes from beginning to end. Incoherent, not cohesive...utterly ridiculous. One of the most talented/beautiful actresses in the world (and I'm talking about Nastassja Kinski) is without a single memorable line here. Worse, she supposedly dyes her hair halfway thru the movie, but it's obvious she's just wearing a cheap black wig bought from a drag queen costume shop. The best moments are given to a character actor and his dog in the apartment building that lead actor Peter Coyote lives in. Fairuza Balk is photographed poorly, to boot. She looks like an overweight freshman who's pigged out at too many all-you-can-eat-student-cafeteria-buffets. I was so looking forward to this film. I WANTED to like it, but I think I'd rather watch Nastassja read the phone book, with her OWN hair.
