Goofs

Most readily apparent during close ups of Johnny inserting coins into the pay phone, beginning with the phone call that Johnny makes to Manny to warn him, and subsequent call, the type of pay phone Johnny is using, changes repeatedly from one that has the coin slot towards the left side and the coin return lever to the right side, to the type that has the coin slot to the extreme right and the return lever towards the center and back again.

An Enjoyable Day in Echo Park...
27 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Bobb'e J. Thompson (playing an African American boy, who befriends Val Kilmer in the movie, "Columbus Day" (2008), have a wonderful chemistry. It is their friendship, and their experience in Echo Park where Kilmer is hiding out, that makes the dialog work. Wilmer Valderrama puts in an electrifying performance. Marg Helgenberger provides much emotion and tension, as we learn about her relationship with Kilmer, and the little girl he does not know.

The acting, editing, cinematography, and music are good. The dialog is written effectively, so that it pulls you in, and makes you want to know more about the individual relationships interwoven with the people Kilmer telephones from Echo Park. Without any doubt, an excellent script helps to bring the people together, in a custom-designed patchwork quilt of messages (on the telephone) and conversations (in Echo Park). Bobb'e J. Thompson's goal is to help Val Kilmer find a better life. Will the boy succeed? This film is definitely worth watching, and I rate it an 8 out of 10.
