Trivia

Lindsay Lohan originally wanted her character to be walking barefoot down the road in the film's opening sequence. The temperature was 110 degrees and the road was too hot for her feet without shoes. See more »

Goofs

In the beginning of the movie, Rachel lies down in the shade of a billboard on the side of the road. When they cut to the wide shot the shadow of the billboard is on the opposite side so Rachel is in sunlight. This might have symbolized the passing of time, but in the next shot, when Harlen comes to wake her, she is clearly in the shade again. See more »

Pleasantly Surprised
5 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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!
