Trivia

On the first day of filming, River Phoenix showed up high and blew several takes. As he attempted to hit his mark, he stumbled and almost fell, mumbling his lines into the ground, and not making eye contact with the other actors. Phoenix claimed to director Peter Bogdanovich that he had only taken a pain pill and one beer, and that he was mostly depressed over the recent breakup with girlfriend Suzanne Solgot. Bogdanovich would later minimize Phoenix's troubles that night and insisted that he didn't cause another problem for the rest of production. See more »

Good music
26 February 1999 | by (brentwood, California) – See all my reviews

Though I have never been in love with country music or movies, I like this one, it´s funny and entertaining. I consider that River was a big actor for a small role, but anyway I liked it. My frustration though was when I bought the CD, and the music was completely different from the ones on the movie, not telling that ,my favorite two songs which are the last song (performed by Samantha) and other by River are not only different versions from the movie ones but they are not part of the soundtrack!. I like Samantha, Sandra and River so, I had a good time watching it.
