The boat across the street from Georgia's house was deliberately put there to hide the neighbor's house during filming. See more »
In the "morning scene" after Rachel and her grandmother has had breakfast the shops are opening and one of the shopkeepers puts the "open" sign up facing inwards, the sign should have said "closed" when seen from that side of the door if the shop was open for business. See more »
Surprise. Saddling up your truck?
Now I had it figured that you'd done away with Simon, buried his body and taken off for the city with his cash and car.
And leave you alive?

This movie was a complete surprise! I had heard the worst reviews and when I watched it I was happily surprised. Love her or hate her Lindsey Lohan can act. I agree with others that say this movie was badly advertised. It is definitely not a light comedy, but deals with a real issue of sexual abuse. Lohan's acting makes the watcher laugh, cry, and ask yourself if she really just said that. She makes all those around her shine. I'm tired of the same old movies making it big on screen just because they are the stereotypical feel good comedies. This is finally an original movie with an original screenplay. If you are tired of copycat movies you should watch this one. Thumbs up!
