Trivia

Feeling Minnesota's title was inspired by some lyrics in the Soundgarden song 'Outshined': "I just looked in the mirror/And things ain't looking so good/I'm looking California/And feeling Minnesota". The band's lead singer and the song's composer, Chris Cornell, revealed to Blender magazine in 2005 that his lawyer told him that they could sue the filmmakers, but Cornell didn't want to be part of that, he was embarrassed about his song inspiring the film's title.

Keanu and the rest of the cast create "Fargo" atmosphere
28 January 2002 | by bsamdahlSee all my reviews

I really liked this movie. It reminded me of the movie "Fargo." There were enough twists and turns mixed in with the goofball depiction of the characters to keep me interested. I thought the acting was good enough to make the characters surreal rather than stupid. This is a movie worth watching repeatedly. As usual, Keanu Reeves does a great job with his character from beginning to end in a spontaneous fashion as the situation is very fluid.
