Did You Know?

Continuity: When Hank Dick (Darren McGavin) takes the hot dog from Joey Turks (Billy Zane), it has a bite taken off of one end, even though Joey has not yet taken a bite (and the fact that it has a bite off one end appears to be deliberately concealed by the wrapper and its handling, but becomes apparent as soon as Hank picks it up). Hank then takes a bite off the other end, so that it has a bite taken off of both ends. In the next shot, Hank is holding a complete hot dog that has had no bites taken off of it. In the next shot, Hank is holding a hot dog with a bite off of only one end and he is chewing that bite. These shots appear to have been placed out of sequence in the film.See more »

Fun!, 1 July 2007
Author: Nordicnorn from United States

Fun enjoyable, offbeat, and quirky. Starts off with Beals attempted, but interrupted suicide. You then follow Joey Turks (Zane), a sleazy, two bit,criminal through the strangest day in his cheesy,life. All this while wearing horrible and tacky clothes. Add to this a,dead body in the pool, a comic-book-style LA noir cop, and Zane's,Forrest Gump approach to crime, and you get an absolute treat. Beals is,great as the odd, wounded bird of a girlfriend. She has kind of a Wednesday Addams meets Cyndi Lauper thing happening.

It doesn't have a lot of CGI, or big bangs, just some fun dialog and good writing. Fun and entertaining.

Overall: Watch this if you get the chance.
