Goofs

The legal goofs in this movie are hard to count, but to start with, in New York, the rule is that when serving process on someone all you have to do is mail it to them and tack it on their door. Sara running would have no legal effect. See more »

Painful to watch.
7 February 2003 | by dustin_wolfordSee all my reviews

I thought the bad Matt Perry movies were over now that he is out of rehab. He constantly tries to play the cool guy, which is uncomfortable for everyone to watch. He should have been the humorous fish out of water that people enjoy. After this film anything with the Matt Perry stamp on it should be direct to video. Anyone associated with this movie is suspect. Elizabeth Hurley should not have agreed to this movie, hopefully she got paid up front. The villain Hurley's husband is the star of a funny comedy-horror movie, but this character was barely two dimensional. I officially blame the director for putting this garbage together. A good movie can effect you. Well I was physically uncomfortable when they tried to develop a love story towards the end. In that respect is the only way this movie could be classified as good.
