At the Hex, Tommy Lee Jones is holding a candle that goes out and is re-lit. The candle is short at this point. Near the end of the scene he holds the candle up and it's much longer. See more »
Yes, sir. And I just want to say thank you for taking me along on this one, sir.
That's the third time today you've thanked me, and I can honestly say at this point I feel the full brunt of your gratitude.
[looks at Theresa's butt as she climbs in the van]
Thank you again, sir!
Get in the damn van!

But I'll tell you what, when I saw this movie, the solidly-packed audience found it quite hilarious, and so did I. Of course, the Austin setting was a plus for me, and it was the first movie filmed around UT that was allowed to use the name and logos. It was fun to see local landmarks including Buffalo Billiards, Threadgill's, the campus and the Governor's mansion, but how could Tommy Lee Jones go to Threadgill's and leave without eating one deep-fried dill pickle??
I made a unofficial poll of the women that I know who are over 40 years of age, and every single one said , " I LOVE Tommy Lee Jones!" If that is part of his demographic, this movie should do really well, with TLJ delivering zingers in that cowboy voice, admitting to his 55+ years, and keeping his smiles for the womanly Anne Archer while wrangling the herd of young cheerleaders.
The supporting cast was also fun to watch - just remember this is not a film - it's a MOVIE!
