Walker writes the formula for acceleration incorrectly on the blackboard. It should be f/s2, where he writes (f/s)2. Then, a student says: "Don't you have to assume that the velocity is constant during the deceleration period?", and Walker partly agrees. Deceleration means that the velocity (or rather the speed) diminishes - constant velocity means there is no deceleration or acceleration. A physics teacher should never make these mistakes.

This is most definitely not my first choice of genres, but still I thought this film was pretty good. The film is a little slow, but it's quite interesting in the end. The characters in the film are really quite interesting and even at the end of the film I wanted to know what else happened to the characters.
The acting was good on all accounts, Matthew McConaughey, John Tuturro, Clea DuVall and Alan Arkin all did a fantastic jobs and I really liked all of their characters quite a bit.
Even though, I liked the film I wouldn't recommend this to everyone. It's pretty much just a movie about a bunch of people and the things that happen in their lives. I kind of found the movie to be a lot like "Playing By Heart", so if you liked that film, you may like this film. I hope you enjoy the film. Thanks for reading,
