Christina Ricci said in an interview that she was originally tapped to play Enid, but a scheduling issue prevented her from doing it so Thora Birch got the role instead. See more »
In the scene where Enid surprises Seymour at Cook's Chicken, the boom is clearly visible in one angle, reflected in the window behind Seymour's head. See more »
[When asked what kind of women he likes]
Well, as long as she's not a complete imbecile and she's even remotely attractive.

After all the credits roll, there's another take of the scene where Seymour (Steve Buscemi) gets attacked by Doug in the minimart. Only this time, Buscemi's characer easily wins the fight, choking Doug with his own weapon, and stomps out triumphantly. He finishes with a bunch of Mr. Pink type dialogue. See more »
I love this movie. It is so simple. Just an episode from the lives of two girls who have just finished high school. Nothing fancy, nothing spectacular, or unusual. Just a situation that we've all been through, but shown through a different set of eyes.
The performances by Thora Birch, Scarlett Johansson (hottie), and Steve Buscemi are very good and the story is heart warming and often very funny.
Movies like this are seldom and Hollywood tends to make it's films unnecessarily spectacular these days. It sometimes works, but is often quite ridiculous. Think - Michael Bay.
This is film is highly recommended to anyone who cares about life. 10/10
Rated R: profanity
