Trivia

Director Davis Guggenheim's parents, Marion Guggenheim and director Charles Guggenheim, were cast as Derrick's parents but their scene was cut. The brunette that Derrick gets together with at the party had her voice dubbed by the Davis' wife, Elisabeth Shue, because the original actress's voice was not deemed sexy enough. See more »

Goofs

Towards the end of the movie, the scratches on Derrick's face appear to be almost healed. However, in the final scene the scratches are shown to be open and fresh for one shot, then are healed again. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Jones: I'm a girl with a problem. It's not like I don't know better. But I seem to have gotten myself involved a very tempting situation.

Alternate Versions

Deleted Scenes on the DVD:
  • Travis films Jones talking about the last time she heard the rumor they started and how it has changed.
  • Travis paints over a picture of Beau on his collage while explaining what roles Travis, Derrick and Jones play in the twisted game they have created.
  • Derrick runs into Detective Curtis and tells him more lies before the detective asks Derrick about a picture of Naomi which was stolen from her room.
  • Derrick calls his parents and tries to ask them for help but they cruelly deny him. This scene was cut because the director didn't want the audience to have sympathy for Derrick. Originally director Davis Guggenheim's parents Marion and director Charles Guggenheim did the voices for Derrick's parents but unfortunately their voices can't be heard on the DVD version of this scene.
  • Alternate Ending: An extended version of the ending has Jones and Travis leaving Derrick alone in his loft when he is approached by a stranger who identifies himself as the man who arrested Derrick when he was in high school and he tells him that Naomi is now pressing charges using the video-tape of Derrick admitting that he raped her.

The first hour is good...
2 February 2003 | by aramo1See all my reviews

Based on R2 DVD 87 min.

Gossip starts off well, an interesting premise, pretty people a suggestion of a good thriller to come. Alas somewhere around the 60 minute mark the script writer must have run out of pencils. The story takes a witless fantasy turn that left me feeling cheated.

The so called alternate ending is just a longer and more unrealistic one.

5/10 catch it on TV
