Goofs

When Lanie (Angelina Jolie) is shown around the AM USA set for the first time, she and the producer enter a darkened set before someone flips a switch and everything is illuminated with crew members bustling about (cleaning, checking cameras, etc). As Lanie enters the set, you can clearly see all the crew members are already in position at their stations, standing completely still and waiting for the light cue to start moving. See more »

Quotes

Pete: Do you have another cameraman who can make her look like a natural blonde?
Lanie: I'm a TV personality. My hair is my trademark. Just like the "I don't like to shower" look is your trademark.

Great Acting & Story...
17 January 2006 | by See all my reviews

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! ;)
