Trivia

Originally, Roland Sharp (Tommy Lee Jones) was to be a FBI agent working in Virginia, but upon receiving the script, Jones suggested that Texas would be a great location for the film. After the producers arrived, they decided to shoot the movie there, and as a consequence, made the main character a Texas Ranger. See more »

Goofs

When Heather is talking to Sharp, she says that Full Metal Jacket is her favorite movie, but goofs on where Private Joker's "Born to Kill" and his peace symbol are located. She claims that there is one on each side of his helmet. In reality, the "Born to Kill is on the front of his helmet while the peace symbol is a pin on his collar. See more »

So Sue Me
29 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

No, it wasn't Oscar material. It wasn't even comedic genius. But it will make you smile and laugh and you will be entertained.

Tommy Lee Jones turns in his customary performance as a blunt, laconic albeit lovable curmudgeon. The plot is predictable, but then this isn't a Shakespearean tragedy, so how involved is it supposed to be? The girls are cute, little, perky provide enough eye candy to send you into diabetic shock. Of course, I could have done without the Texas Longhorn connection being a USC graduate and all. But that aside, I smiled, and I laughed, and when it was over, I felt good.

So sue me.
