Trivia

The jail scenes were filmed in a closed wing of The Barnstable County Corrections Facility in Barnstable, MA. There was so much mold on the set, the crew had to bleach the entire area to decrease the possibility of infection. See more »

Goofs

Near the beginning of the film, a pharmaceutical salesman is shown "detailing" a physician and lauding the merits of a new prescription drug known as "Oxy-Contin." This is completely in error. Oxy-Contin is a Schedule II narcotic which can only be handled by physicians and pharmacists who have a current "BNDD number." Salesmen, as shown in this scene are not entitled to have any of a Schedule II medication and federal law prohibits giving out samples of any scheduled drugs. See more »

Oxy-Morons : A controversial, important, must-see independent film!
14 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Oxy-Morons has the most important message of any movie I've seen in recent years. The setting is gritty as is the language and the violence. Some people in the screening that I attended left early because they could not handle the graphic realism of it all. But let me tell you, if you sit through it you will be tremendously rewarded.

The acting is magnificent. Johnny Hickey was actually at the screening I attended and hearing him tell his story afterwards just made the movie that much better.

I really don't have the words to describe this movie. But all I am saying is take time out of your day to find a place to see this. The message of redemption at the end is completely satisfying.

Help get this movie out there. And be sure to leave the kids at home for this one...
