The reporter in the movie is named Lois Bowden. Lois Bowden is the mother of writer Mark Bowden. However, the anchor mispronounces "Bow" in "Bowden" like a "bow tie", when in real life Mark Bowden pronounces his surname, like a stage bow. See more »

In terms of empathy, in the sense of putting oneself inside the skin of another person, I admire that man. He was an inventor, he had imagination. He was a bit of a fatso, but he was sexually active. And of all of the Founding Fathers whose faces appear on hard currency, he's the only one cracking a smile. Ben Franklin.
Why is Ben smiling?
He was smart enough not to be President.

Joey Coyle (John Cusak) is a young man of twenty-six years old and without any perspective in life: unemployed, with basic level of instruction only. Living with his brother's family and his mother. One day, when he is coming back home with his friend Kenny Kozlowski (Michael Rapaport) after not being hired to work in the dock, he finds 1.2 million dollars that felt from an armored car. He decides to keep the money, and this is the beginning of a series of stupidities, in a true story. Being a simple man, Joey has no malicious and does not know how to handle with such amount of illegal money. This movie alternates action, comedy and drama and entertains. The cast is great. My vote is seven.
