Goofs

When they are broken down and they are chatting at the back of the pickup, they are shown in profile with Halsey in the background. Past Halsey, deeper in the background, there is a constant stream of vehicles on what is obviously a major thoroughfare. Then the camera pans to a long shot showing them sitting in the rain. This long shot also shows the surrounding countryside and they are on an isolated dirt road with no major thoroughfare around. See more »

Quotes

Little Fauss: [getting drunk together while broke down on the side of the highway] Hey, Halsy, you know, just because I don't yak it up all the time, I'm not your pure St. Peter, you know?
Halsy Knox: You know what? All I say is just talk.
Little Fauss: Uh, you sure are a great talker, man. You had two chicks in the sack. And stupid me, man, sleeping in the car.

Man dumps Lauren Hutton in her prime? Loser.
24 May 2002 | by eaglejet98See all my reviews

This is a strange, but interesting, movie. The characters are all losers and you know it from the beginning. You feel good, if only because you know you are not them. But it's scary because you have met people like them who really roam the world trying to leach off the rest of us.

Just keep telling yourself it's only a movie...

And, how'd they make Redford, who is only 5'10", look so tall?
