Goofs

In the first scene, when Bobby Lee and Sue Ann are in bed together, the Tonight Show is on with Johnny Carson doing Carnac. When they finish making love, Sue Ann points out that it is past midnight. Carson is still on, which would be fine on the East or West Coast, but the movie is set in Texas, in the Central Time Zone, where the Tonight Show came on at 10:30 and would have been off by then.

Life begins at 40
30 September 1999 | by helpless_dancerSee all my reviews

Entertaining comedy about a man who turns 40 and begins looking at his life differently. Thinking certain events and "fun" things have crept past him, he starts looking to recapture his youth. Fast cars and younger women are suddenly more appealing than his routine life and dull wife. Even his son's girlfriend becomes an object of his lustful yearnings. Good film dealing with a very common occurrence.
