Goofs

In the award ceremony scene, numerous Austrian flags are show, but all are the civil/merchant version. As an official government function, the flags would have been the state flag (the government flag.) Unlike the United States, Austria and many other nations have multiple national flags for different purposes (government, civilian/merchant, military, on shore versus afloat, etc.) Austria's state flag bears the national coat of arms in the centre, overlapping into both of the red bars. The vertical version of the state flag has the coat of arms turned 90 degrees and placed within a shield. None of the flags in the scene bore the coat of arms. See more »

Give me back my 109 minutes!!!
17 February 2003 | by Mr_JSee all my reviews

God, I hated this movie! I registed on IMDB just so I could bash it. Man, where do I start? The characters are completely uninteresting, not a one of them did I care about, simply because none of them did anything that made any logical sense. Maybe the book went a little deeper into all of these characters' motivations, but I just saw a bunchy of people inexplicably doing stupid things. What is the deal with the damn bears?! Where the hell did that come from?! Does anyone know? Why would they make such a fuss over bears? Especially the character, Suzie the Bear? What was her deal? She said like three lines, and we are supposed to care about this character? I DIDN'T! Don't get me started on that little girl either; man, i just wanted her to shut up! The whole impression of her not growing might have meant something if the director was able to actually convey the passage of time!!! There was so much pointless melodrama stuffed down your throat, I had to go vomit it up after I finished the movie. This movie sucked! Watch at your own peril!
