When Charles first misses his train, it is raining heavily on the platform. As the camera pulls back, you can see that other than on the platform, it is a bright, sunny day with no rain. See more »
First he lures you in with 20 grand. Most folks like you could pull together 20 grand if you had to, right? You think, 20 grand, bong, and he's gone right? Nah. It's not about that. First he wanna see if you're the kind of asshole who pays. Then after that...

I was avoiding the film because of the lower ratings it had received but after several recommendations, I went and saw it and was surprisingly pleased with the whole film from start to finish. In my opinion, this could be very well one of the best thrillers of the year. The trailer for it really doesn't do it justice for what the movie really is; a dark, suspenseful, edge of your seat thriller. Jennifer Aniston does a great job breaking out of her Friends character that everyone associates her with and that so few sitcom actors have been able to do. Don't wait for this one to come out on DVD. You definitely want to catch this one in the theater.
