Did You Know?
Despite being part of the main cast and appearing in many key scenes together, the characters Helen (Sarah Michelle Gellar) and Ray (Freddie Prinze Jr.) only speak to each other once (Ray – "How do you know that?" Helen – "Missy, said there was a friend named Billy Blue)". In real life, the two later fall in love and marry.
When Julie and Helen are looking at David Egan's obituary, it mentions that he was 28 when he died. But when they go to see David's sister, she says that he was Class of '92 at the high school. So that would make him 23 when he graduated.
Hey, its all about the hair. Don't you forget that. Especially when you become some big hotshot lawyer. Those professional types think its all about brains and ability and completely ignore the do
So, the do is vital, got it
I love this movie.
When I first watched this movie I only watched it for Sarah Michelle
Gellar. But after seeing it I loved everything about it. And I came on
here expecting at least a 6.5. But a 5.2? The story is original. Four
teens are in great danger one year after their car hits a stranger
whose body they dump in the sea. Everyone gave great performances, esp.
Sarah Michelle Gellar. On top of that, this movie was frightening. This
movie is great and I definitely recommend it. It is definitely a movie
you should watch for both entertainment and originality purposes. It is
definitely one to see if you enjoyed 'Scream'. The many plot twists and
the many scares it will give you makes it an excellent movie.
