When Alan asks to photograph the family of four, the mother calls her son "Brendan" but the credits list the two characters as "Jonathan's Mother" and "Jonathan" played by Kelly Ryder and her real-life son Brendan Ryder. It appears the actress accidentally called her son by his real name instead of his character's name. See more »

Weird but good
11 July 2002 | by See all my reviews

This low budget offering from disturbed filmmaker James Toback ("Black and White") features Adrian Grenier as a Harvard University basketball player in money trouble who is conned by his shaddy girlfriend (Sarah Michelle Gellar (playing a rif on her "Cruel Intentions" role) to throw a basketball game for money. Add in subplots about the mob, a couple of shaddy FBI agents (including a weird performance by Eric Stoltz), a teacher he has an affair with (Joey Lauren Adams) and a bizare drug trip segment and you have.. a typical Toback picture.. Still, the performances, especialy by relative newcommer Grenier are excellent and the story is weird enough to keep you fascinated.. Not for all tastes due to its subject matter but a good film. GRADE: B
