Did You Know?


In the first scene, when Bobby Lee and Sue Ann are in bed together, the Tonight Show is on with Johnny Carson doing Carnac. When they finish making love, Sue Ann points out that it is past midnight. Carson is still on, which would be fine on the East or West Coast, but the movie is set in Texas, in the Central Time Zone, where the Tonight Show came on at 10:30 and would have been off by then.

Every woman should see this movie
1 July 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie captures the very essence of male menopause. Been there..Done that probably is the first thing that comes to almost every over 40's guys minds. This is almost a case study into the cause of male infidelity. Every female who has ever had her life rocked by a cheating guy should see this movie. Dern is perfectly cast in the role of Bobby Lee.

Jerry Lee' title track sums up perfectly the mindset of a man as he realizes that his youth and his life is slipping by.

I've seen this several times an recommend it. Jerry Lee's soundtrack has been in my collection of years. Its as good once as it ever was
