Trivia

In the "Garage Sale" Scene Ethan offers Lenny (Zack Ward) a small leg-lamp, a reference to A Christmas Story (1983) in which Ward had appeared. Ward didn't know about this prop until the scene was shot and his real reaction to it is part of the scene. See more »

Quotes

[on meeting a movie producer's wife]
Lenny: You know that old saying, "Whose cock do you have to suck to get your cock sucked?" This is the cock.
Ethan: Actually, it's his wife.

Fun Movie meets outstanding acting
13 September 2004 | by (Aachen, Germany) – See all my reviews

Big props to the 2 main actors, Tony Daly and Zack Ward. To be honest, I didn't recognize either of them in their past movies, but they did surprisingly good in this movie. Though being put in the "independent movie" box, I would put this one a few boxes higher: The well known story of 2 "losers" making it in the big city (aka American Dream, The) got spiced up with funny dialogs, action sequences and well chosen locations ... the story does not get in the background, but focusing on the characters of Ethan and Lenny instead of their actions helps the movie staying interesting to the end.

The movie gets to you from the beginning, I can highly recommend it.
