Trivia

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 »

Goofs

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 »

Slow with a weak plot, but Rosanna's fine
11 April 1999 | by (Houston, Texas) – See all my reviews

This film, directed by Sondra Locke, suffers from the plodding pace that is all-too-familiar in movies helmed by "serious" female directors. With essentially no comic relief, TRADING FAVORS crawls from beginning to end, getting no help from the anemic Devon Gummersall (from the TV series FELICITY), who delivers passionless rote in the male lead. Rosanna Arquette is another matter, however. At age 38 when this was filmed, her appearance in a prolonged topless bathtub scene shows that physically she is in her prime, and her acting is just as superb as her looks. It is a shame she gets little or no work in big-budget movies, to which she could bring a good measure of class and glamour.
