All the cast are good, but Reiser played against type in that one and did well. I like James Horner's score in it as well, one of his best for me. For a long time I never knew Weaver got her first Oscar nomination for that performance as well.

Bill Paxton is good. Sigourney Weaver is wonderful...heck, the little girl is fabulous. Carrie Hehn...as far as I can tell, she hasn't done anything since then...but she's so cute the way she says "Affirmative" and she's conveys "child who's seen unspeakable things" wonderfully.

Yeah, Carrie Henn had said that she had fun making the movie, but an acting career just wasn't to her tastes.

Good points on Reiser and Paxton's work in the film! Paul did a great job in this film going against type and gave a fine performance as a likeable slimeball.

My favorite line: ".... and... a few deaths were involved."
