The infamous kiss shared between characters Robert E. Howard ('Vincent D'Onofrio (I)') and Novalyne Price (Renée Zellweger) was only shot once. The kiss shown in the movie is a cut and edited version of their single take. See more »

It's a good film, but it's absolutely painful to watch, as you repeatedly wish they'd put aside their insecurities and get together. The best screen kiss in recent memory is in this film and it gives you a taste of the power they would've had if they would've always stayed together, instead of straying alone. One of the most emotionally abusive films of the last year, it's more of a realistic romance instead of the perfect one featured in films such as "You've Got Mail". This and many other films serve as a reminder that most great romances are not without torturous actions from both halves.
