Trivia

The details of Dallas' version of Nick and Casey's last job differ from that of Casey's version. According to Dallas' story, told to her by Nick, Ball-Peen's apartment was very colorful, luxurious and lavish. And the woman who comes out of the bedroom was, at least, pretty. In the version Casey tells, the apartment was drab, run-down and dirty. The woman from the bedroom looks like a drug addict wearing a bath robe and disheveled hair. See more »

Goofs

When Casey walks onto his front lawn to get the morning paper he takes at least 9 steps in the grass. Then he gets caught off guard when in the sprinkler comes on, and he takes only 3 little hops to get back onto the sidewalk. See more »

Former drug dealer gone straight has a REALLY bad day...
18 July 2004 | by (Kansas City) – See all my reviews

Loved the movie, could kick myself for not buying it right away when the Unrated version was (briefly) re-released on DVD and generally available.

Similar in flavor to "Pulp Fiction," but I wouldn't call it a knock-off, as so many have. Tarantino and Woods both have a talent for realistic, believable dialogue by colorful but still believable characters in a genre where it's seldom seen. But, in this movie Woods also shows a flair for using the absurd, and annoying, realities of everyday life to move the plot along. Woods, like great comedians, exposes the little frustrations of life that we all experience but few will admit to, and deals with them in politically incorrect, yet satisfying, finality.

This movie is well worth watching: sex, blood, outrageous dialogue supported by even more outrageous action, corruption, redemption, and the satisfaction of finally seeing a loud-mouthed, nagging wife at a loss for words when she is forced to confront the fact that there's more to her husband than just the long list of imagined faults she's dreamed up.

See it...soon!
