When the film was in development in 1998, Joel Schumacher was considered to direct with Renée Zellweger set to star, but 20th Century Fox wanted a bigger star and both Schumacher and Zellweger dropped out. See more »
When Lanie is in New York, she is told by the network guy that her live interview will be on at 8 a.m. When the morning show starts, the male host welcomes "all the viewers from the West Coast for this special live broadcast." Presumably, they are doing that because Lanie is from Seattle. During the interview, we see her sister and brother-in-law watching it in a sunny room in their mansion. Eight in the morning in New York is five in the morning in Seattle; the sun would not yet be up, especially in early autumn, when the movie takes place. See more »

I don't know why people have given this movie bad reviews - I really enjoyed it! I don't think the product placement was at all bad... who cares??? Those are things we all use everyday anyway, right? The movie was absolutely wonderful and all of the actors played a great role. The only thing I didn't like was Angelina's hair - she does NOT do blonde very well. Other than that, she did a wonderful job with her character, Lanie - who feels she has to be perfect in order to be "special", she has the perfect boyfriend (or so she thinks), the perfect body, the perfect apartment, and hopes within 5 years she can achieve success in her perfect broadcasting job. Until she meets "Prophet Jack" played by Tony Shaloub (who also does a wonderful job - as usual) who tells her she will die in 7 days. She starts to realize everything she has been working for is superficial and meaningless. You have to see this movie to see what she does in her last week --- & IF she even dies. Two Thumbs way, way up! ;)
