A Pulitzer prize writer buys a cabin. The neighbors get suspicious when a stranger "breaks in". They see a black man and call the police, who start shooting at him. The sheriff tries a cover-up involving a white petty crook. Bad idea.

Late in the film "Betsy's" ( Sarah Jessica Parker) excuse to get away from "Tommy" (James Caan) is " I have to go to the bathroom!". This was the same excuse "Sonny", also played by James Caan came up for "Michael" (Al Pacino - repeating it word for word.) in "The Godfather (1972) in the Italian restaurant before he goes to retrieve gun left by "Clemenza" (Richard Castellano).

When instructing Jack how to operate his parachute, the leader of the Flying Elvises (Utah chapter) tells Jack to pull the yellow lever. He then tells him if his chute doesn't open, he is to pull the red lever to activate the reserve chute. After Jack jumps, he pulls the yellow lever and then immediately pulls the red. According to the Flying Elvises leader, this should have activated both parachutes. See more »
Stumbled onto this one after managing to avoid it for so long. Other than the fact that the film is terribly miscast in all three major roles the thing that struck me is how poorly directed it was. I stayed for about 1 hour and twenty minutes but just couldn't make the ending. Thought I'd come on IDMB and blast the director for such a poor job; scenes shot from the wrong angle, actors horribly overplaying their parts, somehow making Hawaii look "dead" on screen. Found out it was directed by Andrew Bergman and was flabbergasted...the Andrew Bergman that did The Freshman? Oh well, you know nothing is worse than when comedy goes bad...if you don't know it maybe you should rent this film.
