Gary R. Wordham was the name of the actor that is credited as the flirting intern at the hospital. This was also the name that was used on the passport Alec Baldwin's character used when he flew to Guatemala. See more »
After Annie has spoken to Juliet for advice, she goes to hug Oliver and his right arm is on her left shoulder. In the opposite shot of Oliver, his right arm is down below her left arm, Annie's hand changes to the top of Oliver's head. When the shot changes back, Oliver's arm is back on her shoulder again.

This movie is enough to recommend on the strength of the acting from Moore, Gandolfini, and especially Alec Baldwin but it is a shame that some of the excesses and superfluousness (especially the unsatisfying escapade in Guatemala) could not have been cut out. Instead of more action it would have been interesting if the ethical aspect of a compromised juror (albeit unwillingly) could have been explored in the spirit of 12 Angry Men. Anyway, this movie still rates a 7/10 on the strength of some undeniable suspense and very strong acting especially from Baldwin.
