Regina and Joshua take a train from Paris' Gare du Nord station, bound for London's Waterloo station. The rail equipment used carries the blue and white TGV livery, the French high-speed line that runs domestically in several directions from Paris. However, only yellow Eurostar trains run from Gare du Nord through the Channel Tunnel to England. See more »
I was wrong about you, Mrs. Lambert. Meeting the widow of a man like Lake, well, I was expecting a siren, a harpy, a shrew. But you, you have decency, dignity, what my father called gumption.
I'm very touched. You are actually quite sweet for a stars and bars company man, aren't you?
You've discovered my secret side Mrs. Lambert. Keep it under your hat. Boo!

This was strange. I had no idea what this film was about as it was a free loan and I just put in the machine, not even reading the back of the box. Well, obviously it didn't take long to figure out this was a re-make of the famous 1963 film "Charade."
It's not really bad on it's own but if you've watched and admired Charade a half dozen times as I have, this film isn't even close measuring up. Mark Wahlberg is no Cary Grant; Thandie Newton is no Audry Hepburn and Tim Robbins in no Walter Matthau.
Why settle for second-rate after having first-rate? I mean, why even bother? It's not like you are updating some old black-and-white movie to accommodate today's crowd which won't look at B&W. The original still looks good (on the Criterion DVD).
