Originally in the poetry reading scene was going to include a poem written by Henry Rollins. This was changed at the last minute when permission was refused for its inclusion in the film. Bud Cort wrote all the poetry himself at the last minute. See more »

Painful to watch.
30 November 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed the first 15 minutes of this movie. After that all I could do was cringe at this movie and each and every character in it. Stay away. I don't understand why anyone would make a movie like this. I can only imagine that half of the audience walked out.
