Goofs

The phone call between Todd and Simon, in which they talk about the rave and Simon mentions that he knows Claire (who is in the room, as insurance, with Todd), is shown twice. However, they don't coincide with the proper times. When the scene is shown from Todd's perspective, it is night time when he is on the phone with Simon. When the same call is shown from Simon's perspective, it is day time. But Los Angeles and Las Vegas are in the same time zone. See more »

Alternate Versions

A version shown on the USA network for American television included the normal cuts of nudity and profanity. The following scenes are completely cut from the film: Tiny tells the "contact lens story" on the way to Las Vegas; the guys discuss tantric sex in the restaurant (after the scene at the salad bar, the film cuts to the guys arriving at the Riviera in Las Vegas); Simon has sex with the two women and the room catches fire.

User Reviews

enough of the "Pulp Fiction" comparrisons!
23 October 2002 | by patrickl-1See all my reviews

This film has traces of Pulp Fiction embedded in it, but it's got a little "Swingers" and other films to it as well. All in all it's an entertaining movie which ends without epiphany for these characters (like .....). This film has multiple stories but does not try to be alternative and cool. It just wants to work! Sarah Polley (whom I never heard of at the time but follow her work now) was great; Katie Holmes wasn't quite Katie Holmes - and that was good; Fichtner's good; but my favorite was Timothy Olyphant who did a kick-ass job of a charasmatic bad-guy (it was hard not to hate him by the end). I've read the other comments and these people just take this thing TOO seriously! It's not the movie of 1999, it's not "Pulp Fiction", it's just "Go". I have this movie on DVD and heard Doug Linman's commentary: he sounds like he had a lot of fun making this. I had a killer time watching this. I guess if I came in with different expectations I would've hated it like everyone else on this site!
