Did You Know?

In the first bar scene, where Cal loudly complains about his song not being played on the jukebox, the song he has selected is "Hard to Handle" by the Black Crowes.See more »
Continuity: When Cal and the hitchhiker girl drove towards the Minneapolis airport, the weather was cold, somber and gray, and there was a light dusting of snow on the ground. Yet once in the airport, when Cal was talking to his old schoolmate Jack, the camera view out the window of the airport showed a sunny sky and lots of greenery, with absolutely no snow anywhere.See more »
[first lines]
Cal:I'm sorry.
Joanie:No, *I'm* sorry.
Cal:No, it's not your... fault, it's mine.
Joanie:I should have listened to you. You said you didn't want to have people over. I just thought it might be fun.
Cal:Yeah, but I shouldn't have said what I said. You know that I didn't mean it.

Film-makers like this block the dooor for real talent., 26 December 2003
Author: Andrew Backinsell (raymondduck) from Cheltenham, England

I am one of those people that respect every film-maker as having achieved, each film I watch I usually respect(although I admit I select carefully) and appriciate for what it is. Not any more. This is truly one of the worst scripts I have seen produced as a much so I felt compelled to warn others off it. The dialogue was truly unbelievable, the main protaganist was about the last person I would be interested in finding out more about. A scene were an old school friend 'tells it like it is' made me laugh only because it was a pathetic attempt to reveal the subtext of an already concluded plot. The direction is glib at best and at worst film-making by numbers. To compare this film to the atmospheric majesty of a film like Five Easy Pieces is a travesty.
