Did You Know?


The 1984 novel by Warren Adler that the film is adapted from was based on the January 1982 "Air Florida" plane crash into the Potomac River, flying out of National Airport, Washington, D.C.


Errors in geography:
Dutch and Kay exit the airport, presumably either Reagan National or Dulles, upon their return from Miami. Dutch says something like, "I live in Northwest," referring to NW Washington DC. The Lincoln Memorial is behind them as they drive across Memorial Bridge, which means they are going into Virginia and away from DC, which is the wrong way.


Dutch Van Den Broeck:
What happens if you don't get elected?

Kay Chandler:
The country goes to hell.

Drama, Romance, a little Sex, a little Action Good Acting; Saw Twice.

Rating: 8/10

True, there are some goofs, for the one who wants to find them. They're
not important, though.

The primary feature of this film is watching veteran expert actors do
their craft. Kristin Scott Thomas is beautiful and plays well the part
of a strong woman, but one who has been hurt. Same for Harrison Ford,
who, for the ladies, is just as beau as Kristin is belle for us guys.

Their hurt at the hands of their adulterous spouses brings them
together in an awkward manner, but one in which they find support in
each other. How they evoke their hurt feelings and their humanity
within on th screen is why these are such sought performers. The viewer
cannot help but feel what they feel, nor can one help wanting to cheer
them when they're together.

Yes, there are several action scenes involving angry corrupt cops, but
they only spice it up a little, and are not a significant part of the

For the lover of music, Dave Grusin provides a superb Jazz based
background, featuring trumpeter Terrence Blanchard. Like the actors,
Grusin shows why he is one of the most sought musical consultants in
the movie business. Blanchard shows why he's one the premiere
trumpeters on the scene.

Not a movie for the lovers of guts, blood, and gore. But for those who
want to see a lot of what makes us feel inside, watch a beautiful
English actress with big expressive blue eyes who can act, like
Harrison Ford, to the endless soothing accompaniment courtesy of Dave
Grusin and Terrence Blanchard, this is a move to watch with someone you
love. Preferably in bed.

I thought it deserved at least an 8.
