The footage of the radio-controlled submarine under the water was taken from The Hunt for Red October (1990). The first scene of the sub, shows a Soviet Alpha class attack submarine captained by a former student of the Red October's skipper (Sir Sean Connery) and now hunting Red October with orders to destroy it, while the second scene is of the U.S.S. Dallas. See more »
In the beginning of the film Nelson is in a towel talking on the phone. In the matter of one line Nelson becomes fully dressed. There is not enough time for him to have buttoned the shirt and put on his belt. See more »

In order to get a 'PG-13' instead of a 'R' the scene where Keanu Reeves and Charlize Theron are in a bathtub together and some dialogue had to be edited/changed (you don't see how his head goes under water and that she laughs). See more »
It doesn't get any better than this, if you're in the right state of mind.
(10 out of 10) I just saw "Sweet November" on TV by chance. I had no idea what it was about beforehand, and I have not seen the original. The result was a thoroughly moving experience. It's amazing how the same movie can hit people so differently. It's also incredible how one's mood can affect a person's reaction to a film. In my case, the movie caught me in the right mood and at the right stage of life. Thus, it completely hit the spot. I judge a movie based on how it makes me feel, and to what degree. I was falling asleep just before the movie came on, but once it started it woke me up immediately. I then felt slight anger, then some healthy laughter, and at one point I actually cried, which for me (as a 28-year-old macho guy) is a rarity. Was it the script, the plot, the actors' convincing performances, or just my own state of mind which allowed this film to speak to me? I don't know. All I do know is that I can now go to sleep, feeling utterly peaceful and fulfilled.
