Storyline

A well-known actor, who hasn't accepted a role in four years, is considering a project. The cousin of the director drives him to Archie's Ranch Market, in Carson, and drops him off to do a little research. He's fascinated by one of the checkers, Scarlet, a young woman from Spain with a preternatural ability to ring up items at the cash register. She hates her job, stuck at the 10 items or less lane. The actor chats her up, and when her shift ends, he asks for a ride. In the course of the afternoon, he helps her prepare for a job interview. She needs to have confidence, he needs to commit. Human contact, however brief, can change people. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

Morgan Freeman and Jonah Hill have a very brief scene while riding in a car. As Morgan had a major role and this film, and since it was shot in only 15 days, every spare moment Morgan had was spent studying lines. This scene with Jonah took three days to shoot, and between takes Morgan was script reading. Jonah felt he was being ignored by his co-star. This was not true. When the final shot was done, and the camera was off, Morgan to relieve the tension turned to Jonah in a deadpan presentation, did The Name Game song From the 1960's. Jonah Jonah je jop (sic) Jonah, etc, etc. When done, Moran told Jonah, now do Me. See more »

A very genuine movie!
28 June 2007 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

This movie is really genuine and random. It's really hard to find movies like it in bunches of movies now in Hollywood. I really enjoy watching this movie, i bought its DVD Tuesday this week and i've watched it for 4 times. I love the Spanglish accent of Paz, it s just really cute as she is. And her acting and Morgan's are so funny and natural.

My movie taste might be really different from others but i have to say i really love this movie, the simple is the best!

I've learned something more about life from this movie (well, or at least USA's life)... life is really random... Sometimes, u meet someone, they pass by your life and be your friends coincidently, and u don't spend so much time with them, maybe just a while but u enjoy that ''while'' with them, and then u and them will never meet each other again, but the time u are together is really unforgettable. Just keep those moments in your mind as grateful and nice memories...

This movie might be cheap in the making price but its meanings are totally not cheap. I rarely can learn anything from movies, but this is an exception.
