Trivia

Timothy Olyphant, who plays Todd, thought the character needed a tattoo, after talking it over with the director, Doug Liman, Doug thought it was a bad idea. The next day, Olyphant showed up with a temporary tattoo that the make-up department had. Liman ended up liking it and it stayed in the movie. It appears on the left side of his neck; it's a pair of flaming dice See more »

Quotes

[Claire and Todd are having breakfast together, and he's reading the funnies in the newspaper]
Claire: So, what do you have against The Family Circus?
Todd: Okay. You sit down and read your paper, and you're enjoying your entire two-page comics spread. Right? And then there's the Family fucking Circus, bottom right-hand corner, just waiting to suck.

Fantastic, hip and fun
14 March 2006 | by (Las Vegas, NV) – See all my reviews

One of my favorite films of all time. Hip, like Pulp Fiction, it's just crazy-insane fun. Not for everyone, due to language and drugs, but I really LOVED it! There are also so MANY cameos of great actors we know and love today.

Director Doug Liman has gone on to do HUGE, great movies, such as The Bourne Identity and Mr and Mrs Smith. Here we see some of his early talent.

Writer John August writes the Ask the Filmmaker/Ask a Screenwriter column here on IMDb.com

Just a great, fun movie, that hasn't seen been seen by as many people as it should.
