Trivia

Matt Damon said that in 1995, he was paid $20,000 to be in Tommy Lee Jones' film The Good Old Boys. He was able to hang out with Jones all summer and the money kept Damon and Ben Affleck free from having to take other jobs so that they could write Good Will Hunting (1997). See more »

Goofs

Almost all of the costumes are obviously brand-new, with no attempt to age them. This is particularly noticeable in the first scene, with the close-up shot of the chaps, which had supposedly had at least two years' use. See more »

Quotes

Hewey Calloway: Tommy, I ain't never been killed in my life.
