At Larry Maretto's burial the Catholic priest says "in nominis patris et filius et spiritus sanctus," getting most of the endings wrong. Correct is "in nomine patris et filii et spiritus sancti," which any priest would know. See more »

A scene plays out over the end credits where Janice skates over the ice rink where Suzanne has been buried. A darkly comic moment where Janice is literally dancing on Suzanne's grave. Its an ironic fate too because Suzanne spent a lot of time looking down on Janice through the movie. Now the situation is reversed. See more »
i never have been much of a Nicole Kidman fan or one of Gus Van Zant as well. i've always found Nicole to have a refreshing understated beauty but not much of an actress.
well this movie definitely made a believer in me as far as her acting skills and screen presence are concerned. since she's australian, you'll be surprised at her her american accent in this movie is natural, and full of frisky character. she also lets a naturally sexual side of herself come through that gives the movie the added spark that it called for.
the whole movie is well written, well acted and the movie had a wickedly dark sense of humor. the ending is predictable but also kind of abrupt and could have been handled a LOT better and keeps this from being a 9.
i truly feel that Nicole Kidman should have gotten at least an oscar nomination for best actress the year this movie came out. trust me, her performance is THAT good and the movie is quite enjoyable as well.
