Trivia

Nathan wears a Pittsburgh Pirates shirt, #21 with the name Clemente on the back. Roberto Clemente was a star player for the Pirates. He was the first Latin American to have 3000 hits, and the first Latin American elected into the Hall of Fame, posthumously. He won 12 golden gloves, 15 All-star selections, lifetime .317 batting average, and played in two winning World Series, being MVP in the '71 series. He died on a flight to Nicaragua on the 31st of December, 1972, flying with emergency relief items to help after the earthquake there. The statue outside PNC park (which was possibly going to be named after Clemente before PNC bought the naming rights) - where Nathan leaves a ticket - is of Roberto Clemente. See more »

Goofs

After the house explodes and Nathan is headed to the hospital, he is on the 7th Street Bridge. He would have passed the hospital that is on the North Shore, less than a mile from PNC park, which can be seen in the background of the shot. See more »

why did they bother making this film, did someone lose a bet?
12 October 2011 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

In this time of economic crisis and people all around us loosing homes and jobs, i just wonder what type of salary this Taylor Lautner got for his role in this movie? (7.5 million!!!)Here's a guy who has no right to be given the opportunity to act in films and be paid for it! There are so many talented actors out there serving tables and this guy is getting massive salaries to do what he obviously does worst... act! This was a B minus film, not worth the admission fee or the 2 hours you will waste watching it! I wonder what the budget of this film was?, the money would have been better used if given to starving children or me! go to a gym if your interested in hot bodies, go to the movies if you want a good film, or so the theory goes...
