On their way home from a nightclub towards the end of the movie, there is a close-up of the three girls, shoulder to shoulder in the back seat of a taxi, presumably so they all fit into the shot. Next is a wide exterior shot of the taxi and the girls are spread out across the back seat, with plenty of space between them. See more »

better than expected
1 October 2002 | by (Palo Alto, CA) – See all my reviews

If you keep your expectations low, it's more likely to be positively surprised... but seriously, even with somewhat higher expectations, this one is worth watching. I saw it as a "filler" on a flight, trying to save some of the "better" movies for the return trip. This movie actually turned out to be much more entertaining than all those I saved... ;))
