Trivia

The movie's producer, Niv Fichman, can be seen sitting in the audience towards the end of the movie, right after Taylor says to Rick, "Your introduction is longer than your film." He is sitting on the left. See more »

Goofs

When Fresno and his band are rehearsing, we hear a vibraphone in the background. Assuming the keyboard player is using a synthesizer, playing that sound (which is unlikely since the keyboard looks more like a Fender Rhodes electric piano, which produces quite a different sound), his hand and finger movements don't match the vibraphone notes that we hear.

very funny -- and strange
13 September 2004 | by (brampton) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie Sunday morning (and i am not a morning person) at the Toronto film festival, and I must say, it was not what I expected. First of all, it was funnier than the premise would lead you to believe. Secondly, it was actually artfully done. And thirdly, it was very different from the average slow Canadian film. Did I like the film? Yes, very much. It was more of Don McKellar's strange brand of humor, like the kind he used on Twitch City (his TV show) but faster, and maybe a little more biting. In fact, the movie was so fast and multi-layered that I'd like to see it again, soon. Overall I think this was a really entertaining film, and I would highly recommend it -- especially to those who want proof that Canadian movies can be funny, and fast, and exciting, and still smart.
