(at around 7 mins) During the cancer ward visit, the announcement in the background calling for "Dr. Blair, Dr Jane Hamilton, Dr. Jane Hamilton" is a reference to the album "Operation: Mindcrime" by Queensrÿche. The voice is taken directly from the track "Eyes of a Stranger". The album's subject matter of a hitman is in keeping with the film. See more »

An off-the-wall, quirky, postmodern film in which a screenwriter struggling to write a screenplay suddenly finds said screenplay playing out in front of him through his oddball associates and the comedic ways in which their lives interact. It's not as funny as In Bruges, and it's not as clever as Adaptation and the second half feels almost like its from a very different, boring, film - but if you don't mind graphic violence and wet t shirts between your laughs then this film could be for you. The ensemble cast do well to lift the lesser-written scenes (Chris Walken and Woody Harrelson are on fine form in particular) and it doesn't take itself seriously; neither should you: just sit back and laugh at the ride.
