Although a Jewish funeral and cemetery are shown at the opening of the film, as evidenced by the tombstone inscriptions, flowers are seen accompanying the coffin. This is inconsistent with Jewish burial tradition, where flowers are never used in the funeral ceremony. See more »

Robin Williams gives yet another superb performance as an egotistical car salesman who is about to confront all of his demons (ex-wife, girlfriends, Mafia buddy) in one very long afternoon when Tim Robbins crashes into the door and holds him and the customers hostage.
