Trivia:
Much of the movie was filmed at a real used car dealer known as "Mack George motor cars". Real car deals were going on in the building during filming, sometimes the audio had to be recorded later since there were other things going on in other rooms or outside. Sometimes When filming a scene outside, if a customer wanted to look at a car, they had to stop filming. In the scene where Jay's on the phone with Judy telling her that Bernie and Vince quit, about 12 feet over from him a car deal was going on which is why he speaks softly. The microphone was just below him, just out of view of the camera.See more »
Goofs:
Continuity: When Jay and Kevin are talking about getting more money for the cars, Jay says, "Kevin, we're not gonna go that route." But when the same conversation, as recorded by Kevin's hidden camera, is shown on the TV report, he says, "Kevin, I don't wanna go that route."See more »
Quotes:

Jay Austin:Yes, ma'am. I do.
Katie Harris:All right then. May God bless you.

Heartwarming... story triumphs low budget!, 22 December 2004
Author: bRaD Weston from United States

Alright... first of all, the movie was done for a $20k budget. You'll see in the first five minutes that it was shot with a video camera and, while the best that could be done with a prosumer video camera, it just doesn't look like a feature film quality production. Then you get past that and ignore it... that's when God starts working through the film.

Alex and Stephen have created a fantastic story here, and one you'll want to share with others. Afterwards, you'll realize, as I did, that they have managed to created a film with $20k that's better than most of the multi-million dollar productions out of Hollywood today. You'll laugh, cry, and more importantly, you'll feel the presence of God in this film. Highly, highly recommended.
