Trivia

After a few years of playing adult roles, this was the first of three high school roles in a row for Piper Perabo. She was cast as a teenager, although she was already in her mid-20's at the time. She'd already been a bartender in Coyote Ugly (2000) and a government agent in The Adventures of Rocky & Bullwinkle (2000), amongst other roles. See more »

Goofs

During Paulie's outside conversation with Fay Vaughn on the quad (after Paulie has run into her and scattered Ms Vaughn's books); Paulie's hair changes from shot to shot. In some shots, her hair is brushed back behind her ear while in others she has a spare lock of hair curled in front of her ear. See more »

Quotes

Paulie: Hey, new girl, what do you think of Vaughnie?
Tori: [giggling] Don't call her "new girl," it's so rude!
Mouse: Miss Vaughn? She's nice.
[Paulie chuckles]
Tori: Some of the girls say rude things about her.
Paulie: She and Bannet, they got it goin' on for sure.
Tori: Paulie, give it a rest. She's just a single lady, and they're very good friends, and that's it. Don't be so mean... or homophobic.
Mouse: She seemed nice to me.
[Paulie and Tori stare at her]
Mouse: I mean, um, normal. Well, not...

Plain Brilliant!
5 March 2005 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

I might say that, deep inside, "Lost and Delirious" is a chick-flick, but to those girls (and boys, let's say, because girls are not the only who like chick-flicks) who can look further and deeply. It's a smart, intense and beautiful alternative to "Down To You" or "She's All That". And It's also a gay-themed movie that can be enjoyable to anyone.

The movie focus in Piper Perabo's character, Paulie, which has a homosexual relationship with her best friend, Tory, played by Jessica Paré. Once Tory has no courage to admit to her parents she's gay, and decides to end up the relationship, Paulie freaks out. Everything is seen by the eyes of Mary (Mischa Barton).

Piper Perabo gives the performance of her career. And, if we consider she was in vapid movies like "Slap Her, She's French" and "Coyote Ugly", you'll be very surprised (or even shocked) with the way she make her Paulie a character so intense. Barton and Paré may stand behind, but are also great. It's a movie so well-crafted and beautiful that it's kind of funny the way director Lea Pool manages to make a movie that grows every time in beauty and intensity without losing the focus in real life, real feelings. It's a brilliant movie, a must-see.
