As Lewis is looking at his map in the car, his finger follows the road from Red Rock past Green River and down SW. Director John Dahl's earlier motel based thriller was Red Rock West (1993). See more »
When Lewis calls the sheriff's department at the gas station with the ice truck driver he asks for the Rawlins County Sheriff in Table Rock. Table Rock is in Sweetwater County and Rawlins is in Carbon County. There is no Rawlins County in Wyoming. See more »

Ever wonder who blackmails a budding star like LeeLee Sobieski into a hopeless part in a worthless movie? In the uneven Glass House, in which she gives a performance better than the movie deserved, making it watchable. In " My First Mister", she gives a performance that hints at future Oscars.In Joy Ride, she is essentially window dressing, a token nubile young starlet. The director has lots of fun hinting at her cleavage, her (covered) nipples, her panties and other pg 'eroticism' for 12 year olds.
In addition to wasting LeeLee, this movie never develops real suspense. The plot is even more unbelievable than average. The actors seem to be swallowing their giggles. All the best scenes were in the trailer.
Fans of Paul Walker, of Fast and Furious fame, might also endure the movie for his sake.
Steve Zahn tries to steal the movie, and almost succeeds, but ends up overacting to overcome the bad script.
I gave this a 6 for LeeLee, but recommend you watch The Glass House instead.
