During production, the printer responsible for the postal vehicles and police cars provided the number 420 for the police car. The joke wasn't lost on the crew and new numbers were requested and provided. However, the original 420 still appears on the police car in the movie. See more »

I don't know why there wasn't more talk about this movie, because I thought it was wonderful. There are no car chases or government spies jumping between rooftops, but simply a story driven movie. You can empathize with a couple of characters the acting is that good.
However the movie is odd enough that the characters are best described as cartoonish in their single mindedness. Halfway through, you will know who is who and their roles play out as you'd expect. Still the acting shines through and it's nice to finally connect with the characters.
No, perhaps this is not a blockbuster that people expectantly await for months ahead of time, but it's solid story-telling.
