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.

Goofs

In the first fight in the movie between Sam and Jjaks, Sam pulls a gun and aims it at Jjaks then Jjaks knocks it out of his hand. The gun Sam is holding when he aims it is a semi-automatic. But when Jjaks knocks it out of his hand the next thing seen is the gun flying and bouncing off the back of a chair and landing on the floor. The gun that comes to rest on the floor is a revolver.

better than i expected
17 September 2004 | by corvette_loverSee all my reviews

started out amazingly - i could not stress enough how original the film is, idiosyncratic and very interesting, new to the best of my knowledge, for about the first half or three quarters of the film ... after that it is either stupid and unrealistic or overdone and exaggerated, eg. the level of violence is inappropriate for the rest of the thing, though even that in itself was fairly original in plot etc. ... the main reason i had the impetus to write about this film was that it was likely the only (or one of the only) keanu reeves films in which he actually performs well and gives an engaging and three dimensional character with EMOTIONS ... i want to like him, i really do ... this film definitely helped ... 7.5/10
