Trivia

The names of the main characters in the novel on which this movie was based are Edward and Vivien. This was likely changed for this movie as Edward and Vivien are well-known as the names of the main characters in Pretty Woman (1990). See more »

Goofs

Dutch and Kay exit the airport, presumably either Reagan National or Dulles, upon their return from Miami. Dutch says something like, "I live in Northwest," referring to NW Washington DC. The Lincoln Memorial is behind them as they drive across Memorial Bridge, which means they are going into Virginia and away from DC, which is the wrong way. See more »

Quotes

Dutch Van Den Broeck: You know what I do for a living? I get paid to notice stuff. I get paid to know who's lying. I didn't have a clue.

User Reviews

 
Taking the long way to get there.
5 September 2000 | by michaelRokeefeSee all my reviews

Sydney Pollack directs a script based on a novel by Warren Adler. An Internal Affairs Officer with the D.C. Police Dept and a woman running for congress enter each others life when they are faced with the fact their spouses were killed in a plane crash. It is discovered their spouses were in the middle of a torrid affair. But life has to go on.

Harrison Ford is somewhat toned down, and this movie is below his normal standards. Kristin Scott Thomas runs through a gamut of emotions and plays her part in a convincing manner. This movie runs a little long and I understand why some people found it boring. It does seem to drag in places. This time the movie does little to even do the trailers justice.

Also featured are Charles Dutton, Director Pollack and briefly Peter Coyote and Susanna Thompson.
