Trivia

The opening scene where Jackson Hammond pulls into the Coastal gas station (located at the corner of Texas Avenue and 6th Street) was filmed in Kemah, TX. When he takes Natalie Voss as his hostage, there is an empty grass field in the backdrop - the field is now the location of a Passport Inn. See more »

Goofs

The 'Welcome to Newport Beach' sign seen during the chase is obviously fake - the sign with the fountains is actually the Mecom Fountain located in the Houston, TX Museum District. See more »

Quotes

Officer Dobbs: For me, it's the respect and power that the position commands. I don't know whether to be busting bad guys or signing autographs. It's kinda like being a star.

Predictable but great!
9 September 2002 | by See all my reviews

Ok to be truthful if you have never seen this movie before you are probably going to guess the ending by 10 minutes in but don't let that stop you from seeing it! This movie is great no matter how many times you see it. There is something for everyone in this movie.. Humor, Romance, Action, Drama etc. Even if it is very predictable I don't think there has been a single time where this movie has been on cable and I haven't watched it. Just try it, you'll love it!
