my wife was in this film
27 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

my current girlfriend was in the movie as an extra.she lived in Georgia at the time.the film was awful.in her scene she was supposed to look at one of the other actors up and down when he walked into the bar.she was also had dance scene.the actor she was supposed to look at was the one who played the stunt rider at the carnival.i have been looking for this movie for some time now to surprise her.my wife tells me that the actor who played the stunt rider wanted her to be his point of view.she tells me they had to do three or four takes on that scene.the stunt riders point of view was supposed to be on the young girl who was SIXTEEN.after the scene was completed the actor said he wished that she was his point of view.
