When Esther is running to see the king to plead for the Jews the scene switches back and forth between Xerxes, indoors, and Esther, outdoors. Esther is running through pouring rain yet when Xerxes is shown sunlight can be seen shinning through the windows onto the floor and across the faces of those in the room. See more »
[to Esther as she is feeding the monkeys]
I am curious, to whether you frustrate me of sincerity or to ensure you're never chosen Queen.
[getting to her feet, turning around]
You assume I actually care about being chosen Queen.
I am serious!
Serious of what? Finding a real Queen? Is that why you subject us to these beauty treatments? These... classes?
You do not like our fine instructors?
They simply neglect to teach us some things.
Well seemingly anything to do with actually being Queen...

The only good thing about this movie was Esther's clothes. While she is lovely and even James Callis (Haman)appears more attractive here than in his other roles, look for screen caps and save your time. I rented this movie because I love Omar Sharif, Peter O'Toole,and John Rhys-Davies so expected a DECENT movie.
Instead it was utterly awful, terrible lines, wooden and over acting abounded. The simplest thing... prismatic projections from her necklace... which could have simply been done realistically, was so stupid we actually laughed every time it was shown. Without adequate lighting it spread images all over the house. Later it not only spread a multitude of images but spun. Silliest of all, when they were kissing in the tent and it no longer even being HELD in the light, it still decorated the entire tent.
It is not worth the 2 hours of your life you will spend on it. In fact, not worth the 2 minutes you spend putting it in your DVD player.
