Billy Bob Thornton,

For what it's worth, Mona's dead body on the morgue table is a woman's, not a man's. The crests of the iliac, the hip bone, are pronounced, as they are in a woman's pelvic girdle. What this means is that the body was born female and couldn't have been a genotypic male with added breasts, which is the explanation offered by the M.E. See more »
Near the beginning, when the body is being examined, it breathes just before being covered up. See more »

Credits at the beginning of the film use full names for the following people: Audrey Marie Anderson, Marcus Lyle Brown, Bradley Harrison Picklesimer. This differs from the closing credits, which use Audrey Anderson, Marcus Brown, and Bradley Picklesimer. Bradley Picklesimer is mis-credited in both the opening and closing credits and her last name should read Picklesheimer. See more »

What a sleeper. I mean, until two days ago, I had never heard of this movie before. I rented it not knowing how it would turn out. Pleasantly surprised. Pretty straight forward and to the point, a homophobic local sheriff "stumbles" on a murder investigating a traffic accident. The murdered woman turns out not to be a woman at all, but a he/she. Then this movie takes off like a roller coaster, all of which I will not go into detail (go rent it). Some of the things that these lawmen do is absolutely unbelievable, but that is the fun of this one. It is not to be taken too serious.
