Goofs

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.

Insightful movie about middle age and world weariness
8 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Great tale that highlights the dangers of getting what you wish for and not appreciating what you have. Bruce Dern is terrific as Bobby Lee. It's strange to see him in a role where he isn't a scumbag, but his performance is brilliant and touching as a man who wrestles with latent immaturity and crushing loss. Ann-Margret was born to her role as adoring and then betrayed wife. My favorite lines will always be about being the "Daddy." I'm surprised that this movie doesn't get much play in rerun on television. It's the same coming-of-age genre as "10" except that Bo Derek didn't star as the lust interest. Both Dern and Ann-Margret pull off great performances as nouveau riche Texans who are basically down-home at heart.
