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 »
Good performances by a great cast. Fairuza Balk looked great as a student who knew how to raise her grade in more ways than one. Peter Coyote played a widowed professor obsessed with the writings of Nathaniel Hawthorne and a sucker for the young women in his class. The plot was refreshing unpredictable and complex. The sexual undertones and twists were reminiscent of the movie "Body Heat". Jeremy Piven provided some great comic relief moments as the computer science professor turned internet hacker. This made for an entertaining and interesting movie worth watching. Look for a cameo by Pauly Shore, too.
