Goofs

While camping out in the Amazon basin, Flynn points out several constellations including Cassiopeia. Cassiopeia is too far north to be visible in most of the Amazon and, even if they had been far enough north, would be too close to the horizon to see in the jungle. See more »

Quotes

Nicole Noone: Hey, let's stop for a moment, and consider. I'm way out of your league. Way out. If your league were to explode, I wouldn't hear the sound for another three days. So for everybody's sake, let's just enjoy a companionable silence.

MaYbE I'm just a NeRd
22 December 2004 | by rainybklynightSee all my reviews

I personally loved this movie, It was fun. Finally a movie where the smart guy/nerd is glorified and isn't the villain. It had hilarious moments and I guess I'm just weird that I like it so much. I mean, people take it way too seriously, People, ITS NOT THAT SERIOUS! It's just a good adventure and the characters are fun and funny. The jokes are laughable, as they are supposed to be, unlike in so many movies I've seen where the jokes are unbelievably corny. Obviously, these people know what they're doing.(referring to directors and screenplay writers, et...) I loved the main character, Flynn, he was a riot, and so was very lovable. There were many parts of this movie that I loved and will always love. Anyway like I said, maybe I'm just a nerd.
