Trivia

Jerry refers to two movies when they discuss what to do with Paul's body: Shallow Grave (1994) and "a movie I once saw about some guys who accidentally killed a hooker in Vegas and cut her up and transported her in suitcases". This is a referral to Very Bad Things (1998) where this scene takes place in a hotel room at a bachelor party, exactly the way Jerry describes it. See more »

Goofs

When Monica is talking to Bob by the lighthouse they are in bright late afternoon sunlight. Then Monica says, "I'll see ya Bob," as she turns to walk away. In the next wide shot they are both just dark silhouettes at a late sunset. See more »

Male motive in all its ugliness and a thrilling ride.
12 June 2004 | by (St. Paul, MN.) – See all my reviews

A movie consisting of excellent performances by Jake Weber and Maria Bello ("Auto-Focus", "The Cooler")and the irrepressible Michael McKean turning in a superb performance in a role that could have been a Jack Nicholson role. Also David Thornton, Cyndi Lauper's husband and a former alternative rock musician, in an unforgettable role as a wild-haired "unhelpful" fellow auto parts salesman to the lead character.

100 Mile Rule is well-directed by Brent Huff and features equal parts of humor, drama and suspense. The film, like Tin Men, captures perfectly the world that most of us live in: working dry jobs, eating crow from your boss, trying to "turn the corner" financially, juggling the family flamed batons of Kids, Sex and Finances but having to deal-day-to-day with less than savory co-workers. And, oh yes, the temptations of the flesh which make a playground upon our suburbia-addled minds. Male motive, in all its ugliness, is splayed open for our inspection here.

A thrilling ride and a mind-bender from start to finish, sit back and enjoy this film and the fine actors at work here.
