The ending, which takes place after the graduation conmencement, features Jane Weston and Jackie Dunphy instead of Mr. Dunphy and Jackie meeting Tim outside the auditorum where she thanks him for helping her get into Brown University. They kiss which is interupted by Mr. Funderberk who yells at them for making a public scene and Tim responds by punching Mr. Funderberk in the face, to the delight of his friends standing nearby. Tim and Jane stroll off, pushing Jackie in his wheelchair, as Tim contemplates his future. See more »

Mike Corrente's Best!
16 October 2000 | by caspian1978See all my reviews

Finally....we get to see a Mike Corrente film where he actually moves the camera! Unlike Federal Hill and American Buffalo, Outside Providence has a number of dolly and pan shots instead of keeping the camera still for 90 plus minutes. The film also had three montage sequences that made the film move faster. The sound track of the film alone makes the movie worth watching.

Any viewer from New England will be amazed to see Foxboro Stadium in the film. I think its safe to say that Outside Providence is the first and only film to shoot a scene at the not so famous stadium where the Patriots play.

Overall, This was a great film ! Shawn Hatosy hit the Rhode Island accent like it was his second nature. A new comer to the screen, a lot of us will remember Shawn from the hit comedy In and Out.

Like Alec Baldwin, Shawn Hatosy gave a realistic and heart filled performance. Outside Providence is a winner!
