Trivia

When Watty and Starlene dash out of a used TV store, they run past a white wall, painted with the words, "Free Tex Watson." This is an homage to John Waters. This slogan appears spray-painted on a wall behind 'Divine' as he prances through Baltimore's ghetto streets in Waters' Pink Flamingos (1972). See more »

Goofs

When 'Ranger X' is pump gun shot so forcefully blasting him up high up against the trailer, afterwards when reverse shot shown lying face down on the floor, there is no resulting (huge!) exit wound on his back. See more »

Quotes

Watty Watts: [Narrating] I regretted having to fork Billy in the neck, but, I swear to God, he'd have shot me if I hadn't. I'd often liked Billy, but he was crazy... And I hoped that he was killed.

Very good
28 January 2003 | by Scott-177See all my reviews

If you want to see a movie that has no reason for being.... you'll enjoy this. If you want to criticize a movie for looking like Reservoir Dogs or whatever...dont get this one. It's a very good film and the acting is great. But take it for what it is...A MOVIE! This was Rene's last Indy film before taking off with Jerry Maguire and the film is just fun. Dont dig deep in it...just enjoy it. The DP was aweful and the lighting is bad at times but that adds to the film.
