  • Theatrical release: November 17, 2000. Filmed in Vancouver, Canada, and Phoenix, Arizona. The film was originally titled ON THE SIXTH DAY. THE 6TH DAY was coproduced by Arnold Schwarzenegger. The only other film for which he has served as a producer was 1993's LAST ACTION HERO. This film was written by husband-and-wife team Cormac and Marianne Wibberley, who originally had set the movie 20 years in the future but made adjustments as technical advances in cloning seemed to be occurring even during production. The Sim-Pal doll was the idea of noted writer-director John Sayles, who is often hired to add touches to screenplays. The henchman Wiley, who keeps getting killed in various ways but pops up again as a clone, was named after cartoon character Wile E. Coyote. Actor Schwarzenegger performed many of his own stunts, including one in which he had to hide in a large tank of water. While preparing for this scene, Schwarzenegger became disoriented and a diver had to help him out. The exteriors of the Replacement Technologies buildings are actually the Vancouver Public Library. The futuristic cars seen in the movie were provided by General Motors, with special handlers to make sure they were not damaged.
    • Rating - For strong action violence, brief strong language, and some sexuality.

    "...Packed with amusing satirical details of a not-so-brave new world."
    Entertainment Weekly

    "...A crisp and agreeable futuristic adventure....Witty and sophisticated..."
    Sight and Sound

    "...It's a well-crafted entertainment....Schwarzenegger once again gets mileage out of the contrast between his muscular presence and his everyman persona..."
