Movie Trivia/Goofs

  • Went straight-to-video in the UK.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Wayne is leaving the table by the pool, he picks up his jacket. In the next scene just a second later, he picks up the ball to the throw to the dog and his jacket is on and buttoned. There is no way he would have had time to put on his jacket.
  • SPOILER: True story, based on the kidnapping of Gerrit Jan Heijn, CEO of the Dutch Ahold Supermarket Holding. On September 9, 1987, Heijn was kidnapped and killed on the same day by Ferdi E, an unemployed engineer. Ferdi E. was arrested about 7 months later and sentenced to 20 years of imprisonment. Released in 2001, he moved to a small town with his wife. On the 3rd of August, 2009, he was riding his bicycle and failed to give right of way to a digger, which ran him over, leading to his death on the same day.
  • First film featuring Robert Redford to be screened at the Sundance Film Festival.
