Trivia

The bar fight scene was filmed at a genuine Texas honky tonk, The Melody Ranch, in Waco Texas. Dubbed, "Central Texas largest dance floor", The Melody Ranch is still in operation and still looks much the same, both inside and out, as it does in the movie. See more »

Texas can be a place where movies are made?
10 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Millions of years of evolution have lead to the accidental making of this movie,a vast wet tapestry of human relationships through out history connecting each of us to one another, and also this movie. Does stuff get blown up? Stuff does. Is it possible to film a whole movie along one greasy state road in Texas? Oh yes. With poverty being so rampant through out the world is there enough money to make this movie? Again, yes. No starving child was fed so that this movie might dance before your eyes as some flickering light upon a cave wall. A screenplay was purchased with money, and from those words captured in ink, this movie was born. Yes, there is a car chase and yes there is nudity.
