Trivia

When Dubose receives the book in the mail and flips the cover open to see the autograph from Lawson you can see that all the words from the book cover on the inside of the book are complete gibberish. None of them make sense in any recognizable language. See more »

Goofs

This addition is all in fun. When Det. Dubose feeds his cat, the cat is "surprised", with the canned food presented before him. The cat would have been bothering him as soon as he opened the can. See more »

Good premise, awful accents and plotholes
8 August 2000 | by durasSee all my reviews

The premise was really interesting, and overall I enjoyed it, with some major reservations. The good: Cuba Gooding, who's always good; the use of New Orleans, which was quite well done; and the art direction, which was terrific. I wanted almost every painting I saw on every wall. The bad: I had a hard time believing our hero didn't notice the AWFUL AND OBVIOUS stage makeup on his fishing customer and the keywest detective, who sported the fakest mustache ever put on film! I also couldn't believe that an escaped murder suspect--whose face would not only have been on the news every night, but also prominently displayed on the back cover of a book we are told is a runaway bestseller nationwide-- would just blithely roam the streets of the two places he's known to reside in without fear of recognition by anyone but the police. Please. Finally the HORRID southern drawls affected by Eric Stoltz and Mark Pelligrino were among the most egregious I've heard yet... and that's saying something.

But for all that, I liked it. Big 'ol plot holes and all. So if you're up to suspending a hell of a lot of disbelief, it's a fun movie. If you insist your movies make sense, don't bother.
