Did You Know?

The footage of the radio-controlled submarine under the water was taken from The Hunt for Red October. The first scene of the sub shows a Soviet Alpha class attack submarine captained by a former student of the Red October's skipper (Sean Connery) and now hunting Red October with orders to destroy it, while the second scene is of the USS Dallas.

Revealing mistakes: Regarding the bag of gifts "Santa" brought in through the window: the dishwasher seems rather heavy and large to fit into the red bag and we don't see him bring it in the window, or through the door like when he went to pick up Ernie. We also never see him plug in/turn on/prepare the tiny bubble maker, yet it is pumping out bubbles when he uncovers it.

Nelson Moss: [throws his cell phone in a sink full of water] Marry me!
[throws his watch]
Nelson Moss: Marry me! Sarah.

User Review

Some people just don't get it...


I just saw this movie on line. I wanted more information and came across this site. I then read the review about how bad this movie is... What a load of crap.. This is not just a movie. This is a story about life and relationships. There is a saying that goes. "The meaning of life, is to give life meaning." I think that is the message of this movie. Too many times people get wrapped up in stuff and glitz and all technology and everything else we have in this life that we forget that in the end... all we have is each other.

The comments that the acting was not the best is crap too... it is harder to play the rolls these two actors portrayed than to play a bus-drivin super cop.
