Crazy Credits

The letter "o" in the word 'of' in the title is not spelled onscreen. The movie opens with a close-up of a neon sign in the shape of the Texas state, with a lone 'star' in the middle. The title slowly appears around the neon 'star', which fills-in for the letter 'O' See more »

User Reviews

Entertaining, sweet, and funny (read: awesome pick)
31 January 2004 | by argyle9See all my reviews

What a surprise! Having read no reviews, I picked this film off of the shelf at Hollywood Video and was rewarded with an entirely enjoyable, funny, sweet, and overall entertaining film. The relationship between Earl & Baby is especially tender, refreshing and believable, while the performance by Ryan Hurst as Tinker is perfectly protagonistic (if that's a real word!) and amusing. Great acting by all, great screenplay, great directing, great everything. 9 out of 10 (because perfection is always impossible, but this film comes close: no belly-wrenching-guffaw-laughs, but like I said, entertaining). Rent it with the assurance of an evening's entertainment time well-spent.
