Goofs

There are four goofs when the Hillermans have dinner with Andy. With the line, "Eugene would be sitting here," position of Andy's right hand changes, plus he gains a fork. When Andy says, "if the rabbit hadn't stopped," the fork jumps from Andy's right to left hand. At the line, "maybe he's just like a woman," Andy's hand shifts from motioning with the fork to an eating position. And when arguing about leaving the house, Andy's hands change positions.

Little-known film worth remembering
24 April 2005 | by (South Dakota) – See all my reviews

This movie probably never made a blip on the radar screen, but it's got quite a bit of quality. It's pretty lifelike, yet you think "It's only a movie." Duvall and Close portray common people, and you'd never even realize they are now big-name actors. It seems that the jerk in this story is a little too old to be chasing Eugene's girlfriend, but I guess it's possible. It seems unlikely that the kid would travel from Montana to Nevada by himself, but I guess it's possible. You might think that the family troubles in this movie would never happen in your own family, but I guess it's possible. I remember Glenn Close saying something like "You think the work you do is the hardest part of your life, but it isn't."
