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 »

Tommy Lee Jones - a treat for the Mature Woman!
26 February 2005 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

Ridiculous premise? Absolutely.

Predictable plot line? Unfortunately.

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!
