Goofs

The license plates on the cars imply that the story supposedly takes place in Washington DC, but the skyline scenes do not look at all like Washington DC. For one thing, Washington has no high-rise office buildings or skyscrapers. See more »

Every piece of money has its own story.
19 May 2001 | by bart_brabantsSee all my reviews

The variety of stories that surround the 20 bucks makes the movie non-Hollywood. I like the independent, non-Hollywood style of this particular movie with a plot that actually tells something and people who proof that you do not need a gigantic budget to create a refreshing film.
