Trivia:
Whilst researching the project, Paul Abascal spoke with one of the world's leading members of the paparazzi, a man who had obtained pictures of Elizabeth Taylor with her head shaved after brain surgery and of Barbra Streisand's private wedding to James Brolin. He had even gone to the expense of hiring a submarine to try and catch a few pictures of Princess Diana when she was holidaying in the tropics.See more »
Goofs:
Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): On the cover of the Paparazzi magazine, the word "accident" is spelled "accicdent".See more »
Quotes:
[Harper and Stokes just came back from Laramie's house]
Wendell Stokes:So what do we do now?
Rex Harper:[with increasing anger] The whole idea of going IN THERE, Wendell, was to protect ourselves. If we were worried about Laramie coming after us before, we have GUARANTEED it now!
Wendell Stokes:Why don't we go to the police?
Rex Harper:[incensed and angrier] And tell them what? "We broke into his house. YOU *ATTACKED* HIS WIFE! And that WE would like some protection?" You are a moron, Wendell. You are an ABSOLUTE *MORON*!
Wendell Stokes:Hey, what the hell do you expect me to do? The bitch was all over me!

Solid, if Unspectacular, 4 September 2004
Author: Watcher-37 from East Coast US

I found the movie hearkening back to the revenge thrillers of the '70s and '80s.

It moves from point A to point B with little to no surprises, but it's still an enjoyable film. The film actually lived up to the trailer, which made me want to see it.

Cole Hauser carried his role of Bo Laramie well.

Tom Sizemore oozed the right amount of SCUMBAG for the role, but that comes as no surprise to me.

My only real problem was the rather blatant lobotomy they gave Dennis Farina's character. Any detective worth his salt would've instantly made Laramie the prime suspect when the photographers who nearly killed his wife and son turn up dead.

Probably wouldn't buy it on DVD, but I'd definitely see it again.
