Quotes

Michael Fitzsimmons: Gilfond's okay, except that he thinks Hemingway is great literature.
Peggy Sue: And you don't?
Michael Fitzsimmons: He's a fisherman. The most overrated writer of the century. I mean, man he is the perfect American Author - fat, violent, drunk.
Peggy Sue: Maybe you're confusing his life with his work.
Michael Fitzsimmons: A writer's life is his work. Jack Kerouac doesn't have to kill a bull to have something to write about. I mean, man, he's out there burning, feeling, grooving on life.

fascinating and funny
23 January 2005 | by (Virginia) – See all my reviews

This movie has a lot going for it. First, there's a superb acting by both Turner and Cage. Both embody the 60s. The cars, settings and attitudes are fully representative of the era and bring back memories of a seemingly simpler time. But, in this movie, things are complicated by the culture of a later period. I found this movie enjoyable and thought-provoking. It is fun, also, to see Jim Carrey in what must have been his first (or nearly so) role. The mannerisms and cartoonish characteristics that would make him a super-star are evident. In this movie there is character, with one theme about how people treat others, especially thoise of us with personality or other challenges. Good stuff.
