Hollywood. An actor and an actress fake a relationship for the publicity in this movie within a movie, only "cut" could be called at anytime! Is it live or is it "Memorex"?! A romantic ... See full summary »

The Farrelly Brothers disowned the film after Harvey Weinstein insisted on numerous changes from the source material and re-cut the film in order to make it closer to their There's Something About Mary (1998) rather than the coming-of-age tale the original story was. The final film was a flop with critics and audiences and has been more or less forgotten. See more »
Another incorrect use of teen jargon: any phrase using "suck", such as "this sucks" or "this sucks the big one" was not used in the 70s. This became popular much later. See more »
Finally....we get to see a Mike Corrente film where he actually moves the camera! Unlike Federal Hill and American Buffalo, Outside Providence has a number of dolly and pan shots instead of keeping the camera still for 90 plus minutes. The film also had three montage sequences that made the film move faster. The sound track of the film alone makes the movie worth watching.
Any viewer from New England will be amazed to see Foxboro Stadium in the film. I think its safe to say that Outside Providence is the first and only film to shoot a scene at the not so famous stadium where the Patriots play.
Overall, This was a great film ! Shawn Hatosy hit the Rhode Island accent like it was his second nature. A new comer to the screen, a lot of us will remember Shawn from the hit comedy In and Out.
Like Alec Baldwin, Shawn Hatosy gave a realistic and heart filled performance. Outside Providence is a winner!
