Trivia

Drummond Avery (Nick Nolte) is a state senator of an undisclosed state. The term of office and district represented are unknown. See more »

Goofs

The Senator in this movie was a "state" senator not federal. Therefore he did not need to be 30 years old and his terms did not have to be 6 years. So there was no goof. See more »

Dull, unfunny misfire with a good surprise at the end.
24 March 2004 | by gridoonSee all my reviews

Think about it: if you met someone who was constantly saying things like "I'm absolutely ravishing, where's the food?" or "does she have any relatives she might be related to?", would you laugh or would you just look in amazement, wondering what the hell is wrong with that idiot? The answer to that question will determine your reaction to "Trixie" as a comedy, since this misuse of well-known expressions and phrases is the movie's ONLY attempt at humor. It's a shame to find such an interesting actress as Emily Watson playing such an uninteresting character. There is also a mystery, and it's pretty tired, but it does offer one good surprise at the end, so I guess the movie earns a ** out of 4 rating.
