Did You Know?

Trivia Director Jack Sholder has said this about the film: "I basically did it for the money and it was a stupid script. I got to live in Barcelona for six months and, you know, they paid me well. Everything was good except I had to go to work everyday and shoot a dumb script. I haven't seen that one since, you know, I made it. And some people say 'Oh well, it's actually better than you think', but I basically tell people to avoid that one." See more »
Goofs When Valentine (Chris Potter) tells Mercer "Just help me get these people out of here and I'll come back with you" around 51 minutes in, Mercer (Alex Reid) opens her mouth to reply but only the voice of the doctor (José Sancho), who had just walked into their perspective, can be heard, making it sound like Mercer is talking with a man's voice as no audio whatsoever is heard coming from her mouth.
