Storyline

A young war reenactor makes a friend on the battlefield who helps him use strategy to take on his high school enemy. Driven by newfound confidence, he seduces the friend's fetching older sister and risks the friendship. Reality intervenes when the illness of his ex-addict father forces the anger his irony masks to the surface and he has to decide if staying in a fantasy world is worth the consequences.

Trivia

Billy Bob Thornton was offered the part of Abe but was unavailable. Bill Paxton turned the part down. Gary Cole auditioned and was offered the part but he could not fit it into his schedule. Christopher McDonald was cast in the role the night before filming started. While McDonald was on the set, he discovered that he could not fit it into his schedule. The role was then offered to Christopher Lloyd but he turned it down to do Haunted Lighthouse (2003). The role was finally given to William Sadler, who arrived on set and had only 60 minutes to meet and form a relationship with Shia LaBeouf before their big emotional scene together. See more »

Harmless enough
8 October 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie demonstrates that you cannot make movies by committee. You need a clear vision of the end product before you begin, which these directors obviously didn't have. But it's harmless enough. I didn't laugh. I didn't cry. I've seen much, much worse.
