Indiana license plates are numbered by county. While the movie takes place in St. Joseph county (as indicated by patches on the sheriff's uniform), neither Lucia's nor Bill's plates match that county (or any neighboring ones). See more »

Did he give it to Bill?
That is none of your business.
Actually it is. I could drink from the wrong cup or something by mistake.

Some outrageous laughs from Christina Ricci and Lisa Kudrow
Dedee Truitt (Christina Ricci) is a 16 year old from Creve Coeur, Louisiana. She runs away to her gay half-brother high school teacher Bill Truitt (Martin Donovan). He's living with his foolish boyfriend Matt Mateo (Ivan Sergei). She has everyone wrapped around her little finger except Bill's stuck-up friend Lucia DeLury (Lisa Kudrow) who is the sister of Bill's dead ex-lover Tom. Dedee is manipulative and outrageously inappropriate. She seduces Matt, claims Matt is the father of her unborn child, steal $10k from Bill, and runs away to L.A. Matt's other boyfriend Jason Bock (Johnny Galecki) wants Matt back and maliciously lies to Sheriff Carl Tippett (Lyle Lovett) about being molested when he was Bill's student. That's when things start to turn crazy.
Dedee is selfish and morally corrupt. And she's played with biting wit by Ricci. She gives a running inner monologue and that is even worst than her inappropriate comments. Everybody is running around orbiting this little tart. The only reasonable person seems to be Lucia but she may be the most troubled of all. She's been hopelessly pining for a gay guy while ignoring an admirer. Lisa Kudrow is just as effective performing the polar opposite personality. She is just as funny in her frustration with Bill.
