When Linda and Walter are riding on the bus, she spots someone on a side street. They start yelling for the bus driver to stop, which he eventually does. But when we see them stepping off the bus, it's right at the corner of the street where the person is. They would have had to walk back at least a block. See more »
I collect goldfish. I keep them in a small tank in my bedroom. Other kids my age like dogs - if they like animals at all. But for me, it's goldfish. I understand them, living under water in a little bowl, hearing nothing, just watching everything through glass.

Decent movie, but I found myself lost in several areas. I was not impressed with synopsis surrounding Ashton Kutcher and Michelle Pfeiffer's characters. It was weak in many areas, personal relationship, where the characters drew their strength and weaknesses from. I found myself being bored in many parts, and had to come back to the storyline several times to keep my interest intact. Kathy Bates did very well with the limited material provided, and understood some of the areas where humor was included and needed. I was more impressed with Aleks Paunovic and Spencer Hudson, and would like to have seen their characters expanded much more in the movie. It's a shame, and I would have rated it higher were this the case. Paunovic and Hudson appear to be excellent actors!
