Did You Know?


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 »


In the final scene when Monica meets the jogger who will presumably be her next victim, the jogger is wearing a T-Shirt that says "Pittsburg" and is outlined with the shape of the state of Pennsylvania. The city in Pennsylvania is spelled "Pittsburgh"; not "Pittsburg". See more »

Farther Than you Think
14 July 2004 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

This is one of those movies where the quality of the acting is far above the material itself. Michael McKean and David Thornton are joys to watch. Also, though the plot is derivative, it is very knowing about business trips and sales people, and if you've ever been on a business trip, you'll find yourself laughing and nodding at many points. The movie never seemed false or strained, just a little weak at the very end. Up to that point, it's an above average investigation of salesmen gone bad. It's a bit like "Very Bad Things" only played more for comedy than for dark drama. Jake Weber, though British, does a very good job playing an American, something that cannot be said of many of his countrymen.
