Did You Know?

Trivia:
Ellen Burstyn wrote in her autobiography that she considered the scene between Alice and David in her kitchen, where she improvised the story of her and her brother doing an act together, "the best scene in the film; the most real and the best example of what Marty's kind of directing can do."See more »
Goofs:
Factual errors: Tommy says the A7 chord hurts his fingers. A7 is one of the easiest chords, even for beginners. Kristofferson would know this and could have asked the script be altered, and recommend a more difficult chord.See more »
Quotes:
Alice:[after Tommy, was being a smart aleck] If you open your mouth, once more, I swear to God, I'm gonna nail it shut.
Tommy:[Opens his mouth]
Alice:I'm warning you, Tommy. I'm gonna throw you out, and you're gonna walk the last mile home.
[Tommy makes, faces at his mother]
Alice:Get out!
[Kicks Tommy, out of the car, and Alice drives away]

Ellen Burstyn blew me away with her outstanding performance, 1 December 1999
Author: suz_elaine from USA

The beginning of the movie starts off with a bang. Martin Scorsese sees to that with his brilliant directing ability. I laughed out loud within the first minute. Even the opening credits and song were perfect for the intro. Harvey Keitel was great in his performance as well. He played his character to a T. But Ellen Burstyn completely takes the cake as far as performances go in this wonderfully realistic film. I want to rush and see every movie she's ever been in!!
