Did You Know?


Even though the scene is set in Los Angeles, CA, the bakery scene where Frank meets Sarah is actually shot in Morocco at the Amoud bakery. Director Aziz Tazi had this place in mind while writing the script, since he grew up in Casablanca, Morocco. See more »

A Total Embarassment

I wouldn't want my name attached to this steaming pile of garbage! It's all over the place, constantly jumping back and forth in time, people are referencing things that we're not shown, but we're expected to know what they're talking about. I honestly felt like the editor accidentally cut out crucial bits of the movie and no one realized it until the movie was released.

The writing isn't the only thing that sucks; the acting is ATROCIOUS! Not even Mickey Rourke nor Erc Robert's, legends of the acting world, could save this stinker! It's a disjointed embarasment and I highly recommend saving your time and money!
