To calm her and create a certain atmosphere of intimacy before filming the lovemaking scenes, Viggo Mortensen sang a couple of love songs to Gwyneth Paltrow that he learned in Argentina when he was young. In an interview he said, "I don't know if that ended up scaring her instead." See more »
When Gwyneth opens the door to apt. 219 - sealed with yellow crime scene tape - she inserts the key into the deadbolt and turns it counterclockwise. Based on the door configuration this would have LOCKED the deadbolt but it opens smoothly... See more »

1. A loose remake of Hitchcock's "Dial M For Murder" 2. Michael Douglas is directed horribly in some scenes 3. Poor dialogue at times
Dial M For Murder is better of the 2, but this isn't bad, just not directed very well by a goodish director. Firstly, the framing is off at times, resulting in poor editing which the picture didn't need. 2 characters can fit in one frame without resorting to close-ups which add no emotions to the characters.
Michael Douglas's performance wasn't good at all in some scenes, a face expression can say a 1000 words. He practically gave away clues to the police just by unconvincing expressions on his face. This is the director's fault!
Andrew Davis can produce better than this. I didn't feel anything for any of the characters.
The twists try to shake off Hitchcock's original, but at times it becomes sloppy. The finale is extremely disappointing, very tried and so damn boring!
I watched this in aspect ratio 1.78:1 (16:9).
Average, but not horrid. I can't say too much just in case you haven't seen it :)
