Trivia

Apparently, to prepare himself for the cross-dressing scene, Jason Isaacs wandered the drag clubs, picking up on behavior of people there. He wanted to bring Keanu Reeves along, but it would be hard to go undercover with the star of the newly-released The Matrix (1999), so he went alone. See more »

Goofs

Regarding the bag of gifts "Santa" brought in through the window: the dishwasher seems rather heavy and large to fit into the red bag and we don't see him bring it in the window, or through the door like when he went to pick up Ernie. We also never see him plug in/turn on/prepare the tiny bubble maker, yet it is pumping out bubbles when he uncovers it. See more »

Some people just don't get it...
3 July 2004 | by (Iowa) – See all my reviews

I just saw this movie on line. I wanted more information and came across this site. I then read the review about how bad this movie is... What a load of crap.. This is not just a movie. This is a story about life and relationships. There is a saying that goes. "The meaning of life, is to give life meaning." I think that is the message of this movie. Too many times people get wrapped up in stuff and glitz and all technology and everything else we have in this life that we forget that in the end... all we have is each other.

The comments that the acting was not the best is crap too... it is harder to play the rolls these two actors portrayed than to play a bus-drivin super cop.

GREAT MOVIE... SEE IT FIRST CHANCE YOU CAN...
