At the end of the movie, when Vincent closes the trunk of the Cadillac Deville with his leg, there is a distinctive latching sound of the trunk. Cadillacs do not make such a sound since they have a motorized trunk-closing mechanism which closes the trunk silently when the deck lid is closed gently. It is impossible for a Cadillac to make such a sound as the one in the movie (unless it was modified). See more »

I really enjoyed this movie. It had a really 'feel good' theme and left me wanting more. It reminded me of an old romantic movie where the guy always gets the girl. Benicio Del Toro was excellent, he really made the role his own, like it was written with him in mind. Any other actor wouldn`t have worked. Let`s just hope we see a lot more of him in the future. Fair enough, the plot wasn`t exactly rocket science, but the story was told really well and watching it was a real escape from everyday life.
I would recommend this film to everyone (although maybe the romantics out there would probably appreciate it the most!!). Although Alicia Silverstone played her part well, Del Toro, with his simple, bumbling ways, really made the movie for me. Definitely A*
