Did You Know?


The scene where Lincoln (Devon Gummersall) tries to buy beer, and the clerk (Cuba Gooding Jr.) tells him: "Do I look like a little girl to you?, 'cause I feel like you are trying to fuck me", is similar to what Jules (Samuel L. Jackson) says in Pulp Fiction (1994). in this film, Alex (Rosanna Arquette) looks at him - she also played Judy in Pulp Fiction. See more »


When Lincoln is walking along and Alex is driving beside him, the lower half of the crew is reflected in the side of the car. See more »

this title is just too easy!
31 May 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

High school nerd meets free spirit/jailbroke Rosanna Arquette and sets out on crime spree and journey of life. Similar to HIT AND RUN and SOMETHING WILD, it turns very mean and bloody in the last 20 mins, when Arquette's thug boyfriend shows up. Alanna Ubach has nice cameo as white trash bar pickup, but the scene is as pointless as the rest of the picture. Arquette's character is more annoying than appealing (remember her GREAT cameo in the otherwise blah TVM THE 60s, as an SF hippie chick? inspired casting). Pretty poor, except for a few minutes with Ubach, and of course Rosanna in the tub.
