Goofs

The license plates on the cars imply that the story supposedly takes place in Washington DC, but the skyline scenes do not look at all like Washington DC. For one thing, Washington has no high-rise office buildings or skyscrapers. See more »

what Slacker should have been.
11 April 2001 | by (St Petersburg Florida) – See all my reviews

I loved this movie. It really showed heart. Where as Slacker had a disjointed narrative with annoying unsympathetic characters, TB has a narrative DEVICE (something slacker desperately needed) to move the characters along. And yes while a few of the plot lines were left dangling like the reverend and Christopher Lloyd's character, I left this movie with a feeling of contentment and resolution that was sorely lacking in Slacker. A favorite for personal reasons to be sure, but still a great movie. 9 out of 10
