The tape used for marking where people stand is visible when they are at the door of the Leinhart Rents truck. It disappears and reappears throughout the scene (at around 1h 28 mins). See more »
Do you know that you're acting exactly like Malcolm?
What's wrong with that?
Nothin'. It's just... kind of creepy.
Well, if I'm acting like Malcolm at all, you should be grateful.
Well, uh, yeh, Malcolm got himself killed.

Quality production of an amusing story line.Well worth the effort to see it
Another example of a really good small film that didn't get the promotion or distribution it deserved. Billy Bob Thornton just gets better and better. This little film about the Northern California Dope Growers, is great. I disagree with the categorization of the film as a comedy. It is more of a drama with moments of comic relief, but it certainly entertains. There are no great life lessons to be taken from it. (well maybe there is one lesson. If you're doing something illegal, it's best not to have a gunfight in the parking lot thus calling attention to yourself) An incredibly good cast, cleverly written and well performed I'd give this one a solid 8.
