The joke the barman has with Jed when he and Andy were out for lunch early in the film is old ( "Hey doc it hurts when I do this with my arm.. then don't do that") but it was an original of the celebrated British standup comedian Tommy Cooper from about 1974. He specialised in those type of one liners and upturning the English language and all it's quirks. See more »
Jed said Tracey's blood group was AB negative. He would need to get donors in that type. In fact she could have been given any Rh negative blood type. Group O, A or B would be suitable for someone who is group AB (universal recipient). Only the Rh type (positive or negative) is important and then only to woman of child-bearing age. See more »

this is one very good movie.it's got suspense,a twisting plot,great intensity,and a good story.it may not be wholly original,but it think it works,thanks to its three main actors,Alec Baldwin(The Good Shepherd)Nicole Kidman(The Interpreter)and Bill Pullman.But Kidman really surprised me with the intensity she brought to her role.i'm generally not a fan,but she is effective in this movie.the supporting performances are also good.i also like the fact that the movie isn't completely predictable,like happens in so many movies.the movie is also very well paced.there are no lagging spots to slow things down to the point of boredom.anyway,i really enjoyed it. 8/10
