Did You Know?
The night before the scenes at the University of Maryland were to be filmed a half inch of snow fell. The crew then had to use fire hoses to hose down the entire McKeldin Mall and nearby locations to melt the snow for continuity in the movie.
When Ben and Abigail are fighting in Buckingham Palace. Ben takes a ride down the banister when Abigail shouts "Ben" the sound is before her mouth is moving.
He's in the other room.
I will keep it short and simple. Just watched it, paid 10$ for it, it
is worth it. Not much of details as you would expect out of a great
movie, not much of substance in the movie itself however the acting and
the pace of the movie is so beautiful you wont think of the flaws in
the intricate plans they carry out in the movie. The subtle comedy is
really nice and they have kept the first movie in consideration and
have not brought many new characters. It is not a movie that you would
think a lot about after you come out of the hall, however you will not
think anything else either while the movie is going on. I will give it
7 for the sheer value of entertainment and nothing else and of course
the one liners that keep popping up which actually make you laugh.
