Trivia

The movie was produced via a "negative pick-up deal" with Paramount Pictures. This is defined by Wikipedia as being "a contract entered into by an independent producer and a movie studio wherein the studio agrees to purchase the movie from the producer at a given date, and for a fixed sum. Depending on whether the studio pays part or all of the cost of the film, the studio will receive the domestic, international, DVD, Blu-ray, and/or television rights to the film, with net profits split between the producer and the studio."

Goofs

When Arliss looks at the photo of Kay's family, the photo shown in the first shot is not the same photo as that shown a few seconds later in the close-up. In the close-up, the trees are gone from the background, the baby's hand is outstretched and you can clearly see the mother's face. See more »

Waitress: Unless that little pastry inside comes with a bicycle pump and two sisters, there ain't gonna be a farm animal safe for three counties tonight.

Why I Liked This Movie
26 July 2004 | by See all my reviews

A friend gave me this tape a few weeks ago, it did not have a cover and I had never heard of it. I was surprised to see who starred in it. Meg Ryan is one of my favorite actresses. She did a real good job of making this part come alive. But I still think the biggest surprise was seeing James Caan play a role without any feeling. He really was evil in this role and was believable as this person. The movie itself really makes you think that whatever you do will eventually come back to haunt you no matter what you do. I also liked Gwyneth Paltrow in the role of a thief, but I wished that I knew why she did the things that she did. And why she would stay with a man that was pure evil. I guess that is what makes the movie so thought provoking. I'm glad that a friend gave this to me to watch, because if I had seen the title I would have thought it was a horror movie. I have since talked other friends into watching it and all have liked it. I would recommend this movie to anyone.
