Trivia

Goofs

Airplane doors are conical in shape with the bigger frame on the inside. Thus the door will be sealed against the side of the fuselage by the pressure inside the plane. To open it you must first pull it inwards and then out which can only be done when the air pressures are equal on both sides of the door. You cannot blast it out of the frame the way Nicole does just before she and Flynn leaves the airplane. See more »

Flynn Carsen: Well, I've read a lot of books.
[laughs]

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.
