Quotes

Miles Evans: You know, you could get lucky. God might decide to grade you on the curve.
Manuel Jordan: It wouldn't matter either way.
Miles Evans: You don't know what the hell you talking about, do you? Why be afraid of a God that you don't believe in? Oh, I know, it seems like people are making up shit so they can feel good about all the pain, all the cruelty, loss, violence, suffering, death. Famine, bigotry, small-mindedness, repression, depression, oppression. Want me to keep talking? 'Cause I can go on forever with this shit.

A good movie.
28 October 2003 | by (The Florida Keys) – See all my reviews

I like this film. It has shadows in it's plot that seem to come from other film plots, but does them in a different way; and very well executed. Though not GREAT (i tend to lean toward films with lots of action) this one holds it's own.

Kirsten Dunst is awesome. She plays a mixed up (formerly) rich girl who's addicted to partying. I think to forget her problems at home and let loose. She's not depicted too often in the partying state, but mostly seen 'the morning after' in whatever state she happens to be in. Nevertheless, I like the way she seems to just brighten up a scene; even if she is out of it sometimes (her character, not acting).

Bill Thorton! What can I say? Does he ever NOT give a commanding performance! He's just damn good. Even when he's supposed to be a subdued character (like this one and Bandits, maybe even Slingblade) he seems to steal the show. Well, he did have the lead role. But still, he's versatile and just fun to watch.

All I can say about Holly Hunter is, "Why isn't she in more films these days???" She's adorable and talented, but there's more. She brings a certain depth to her art that just wouldn't be there with anyone else.

I'd like to see this same cast in many films. A wide variety of plots and locations and genres. Good entertainment and great moral story.

7/10 thank you
