Trivia

Even though they did not share any scenes, Bob Newhart and Noah Wyle shared one previous project before making this movie when Newhart guest starred on ER (1994) (co-starring Wyle) in 2003 as an artist going blind and contemplating suicide, a rare dramatic role for the legendary comedian.

Goofs

When Nicole and Flynn jump out of the plane, you can see them rushing past the wheels of the plane. The landing gear is only down for take-off or landing, and they had not yet come close enough to the airport for that to have happened. See more »

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.
