Trivia

Tom Cruise turned down the part later played by Jason Patric as he didn't like the idea of scenes involving him taking drugs. See more »

Goofs

The first time Jim puts a needle in his arm in-front of Kristen, he never pushes the plunger in, when he unties the belt, you can clearly see a few inches of white plunger, if he had pushed it in, the plunger would not be sticking out. So therefore he did not "shoot up". He simply stuck the needle in his arm without injecting the contents. See more »

Feelings towards the movie RUSH
18 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was about 21 when i first saw the movie Rush.. and i just fell in Love (well maybe not love, but close..) with Jason Patric. The mix between him and Jennifer Jason Leigh was wonderful. And adding Sam Elliot to the show was like icing on the cake. Then adding Max Perlich and Gregg Allman gave this movie the perfect cast. It was a movie that people could relate to b/c the writers and directors didn't dress it up to be something that it wasn't. They made a real life situation seem not only realistic, but interesting and informative as well . I felt like i was there with them the whole time, going through the motions like they were. I've watched this movie many times and it is by far my favorite movie,, never have i found a movie that can match the feelings that this one gives me. I say great job to all who where involve. It is an amazing movie and a must see. Truly what a movie should be. Thanks for listening, Angel
