Goofs

Movie spans in '74-'75, and early they show a joint being rolled on a copy of Hunter S. Thompson's "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas", with the tagline at the bottom (of the book) "From the author of the Great Shark Hunt", which was published in '79. See more »

Quotes

[Dunphy rolls a joint]
Jane Weston: Put that away! It's time to study.
Timothy Dunphy: No, really, I study better when I'm stoned. It's like my brain becomes more focused or something.
Jane Weston: Yeah, right. You haven't gotten higher than a D since you've been here.
Timothy Dunphy: That's cause there's no good weed around here!

Mike Corrente's Best!
16 October 2000 | by See 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!
