Trivia

Michael Crichton managed to predict a future technology, CGI, with this film but put to more sinister applications. Crichton was always a skeptic about new technologies. CGI would later bring dinosaurs to life in one of his most successful stories, Jurassic Park (1993). See more »

Goofs

At precisely 4:50 (DVD timing), when the model opens her apartment door and her dog barks, you can clearly see the trainer's hand motioning for the dog to turn around (lower right hand corner of the screen). See more »

Well done suspense & sci-fi, with unexpected bonuses.
13 June 2001 | by See all my reviews

A plastic surgeon gets suspicious when the police question him about the death of a model he's worked on, and learns that all the models he's worked on who came in with "shopping lists" of miniscule changes that "had to be fixed, so I could be perfect," are dead. Susan Day has just come in with a list of her own, and he decides to keep an eye on her - and learns of a plot to use computer generated images made from detailed electronic measurements of the models to replace live models for commercials and acting. One bonus is about 3 minutes of Susan Day being measured, sans clothing. Let's face it, every boy who grew up watching "The Partridge Family" dreamed of the chance to see her like this! (The nudity is handled tastefully - there's nothing graphic.)
