A seasoned FBI agent pursues Frank Abagnale Jr. who, before his 19th birthday, successfully forged millions of dollars' worth of checks while posing as a Pan Am pilot, a doctor, and a legal prosecutor.

When Cal's safe is recovered on the Keldysh's deck, a crewman starts grinding on the hinges. In the next scene, he is standing up, just preparing to kneel down and work on the safe. See more »

During the sinking in a prerelease version seen in November 97, there was a short scene with the Strausses (The older couple later seen on the bed). Mrs. Strauss is offered a place on the boats, but refuses to leave her husband, and Mr. Strauss refuses to take a place before the other men. You can see the tail end of the shot in the final film, with the two of them walking away after this exchange. Other things that were longer in this version were the opening on the sea floor, where more artifacts are seen, as well as Rose's search for the handcuff key (she is shown looking through more drawers, etc.) See more »
To all the miserable people who have done everything from complain about the dialogue, the budget, the this and the that....who wants to hear it? IF you missed the point of this beyond-beautiful movie, that's your loss. The rest of us who deeply love this movie do not care what you think. I am a thirthysomething guy who has seen thousands of movies in my life, and this one stands in its own entity, in my book. It was not supposed to be a documentary, or a completely factual account of what happened that night. It is the most amazing love story ever attempted. I know that it is the cynical 90's and the millennium has everyone in a tizzy, but come on. Someone on this comments board complained that it made too much money! How lame is that? It made bundles of money in every civilized country on the planet, and is the top grossing film in the planet. I will gladly side with the majority this time around. Okay, cynics, time to crawl back under your rock, I am done.
