Trivia

John Carroll Lynch's father role was originally meant to have no dialogue, and was even considered to be taken out of the story, but due to so many good actors coming in to audition for the role, and Lynch's many meaningful additions to the story, the role was kept in. See more »

THIS MOVIE HAD ME ROLLIN!!!
23 August 2002 | by (San Franciso Bay Area) – See all my reviews

Some say this movie was offensive, but if so, it was offensive to at least a dozen different demographics equally. This movie owes it to Jake Gyllenhaal. He was hilarious!!! I mean I can't believe he was able to suspend the energy level from the very beginning. You also have to give it up to Swoosie Kurtz. She played her character so well and not to take anything away from her, just looking at her face cracks me up. The funniest moment was when the Indian ice cream truck driver was shooing the big rig to get out of the way!!!HAHAHAHAHA....just thinking about it.
