Trivia

Originally in the poetry reading scene was going to include a poem written by Henry Rollins. This was changed at the last minute when permission was refused for its inclusion in the film. Bud Cort wrote all the poetry himself at the last minute. See more »

Quotes

Grace: Wanna know what I'd do? I'd break his balls. What you do is... you get yourself a sock, put a couple of plums in it, tie it to a doorknob, and you practice reaching out, grabbing 'em and pulling down on his balls until they pop.

Love and acceptance means everything.. even enough to risk one's fate and freedom.
31 August 1999 | by See all my reviews

I cannot understand why this film did not receive higher acclaim than what I have seen on IMDB. This movie was a masterpiece within its own genre. This movie shows us, those who are stuck in the 90's desperately wishing we could transport to another era, how one man can be both highly understood yet highly unstable. The conclusion of this film brought us to the understanding that no matter how "dangerous" Ted may have seemed, he was only a victim of his own comprehension. This movie was truly a masterpiece in that in delved into the mind of someone most Movie Goers could never understand. The entire intention was to show how limited most humans can be, and at the end of the film, even the "tortured" Linda realizes the true intent of the wayward and mentally unstable Ted.

Love and acceptance means everything.. even enough to risk one's fate and freedom.
