Some of the items checked out by Sharon at the beginning of the film include Kellogg's Corn Flakes, a 2-liter bottle of Coca Cola, dish washing detergent, and a package of Cadbury Mini Rolls. The box of Ritz Crackers is not checked out and is instead used to block the clock from her field of view.See more »

A good film, apart from the lack of gratitude towards Nicholson Baker, 25 April 2009
Author: antoinecatry from France

An OK film, it raises funnily and cleverly the questions of sex, beauty and the private moments of life. Nevertheless, I have just discovered this film a couple of weeks ago during a visit at the video store and you know what my first thought was after reading the summary of the film on the DVD cover ? "This is Nicholson Baker ! And not a single mention of it !" I read the ""Fermata in 2004 and the book upon the shelves of my library offered the possibility to share views with the help of pieces of paper between the pages, I believe it is what you call book crossing. This book, although I don't read that much, provided a great sensation because in my adolescence, I vividly wanted that kind of freezing power to undress women. Nicholson Baker has had the art of translating a common human (male especially) fantasy, I believe. I know ever since he did it again by imagining a man desirous to kill George W. Bush in "Checkpoint" after seeing the news in Iraq ! Even if many of us had that kind of fantasy, I doubt Sean Ellis was unaware of the Fermata in the process of writing Cashback, therefore, he should have added an ounce of gratitude to Baker. According to what I read on the Internet, I'm not the only one thinking that way.
