Quotes

Jane White: You're wrong! That box gives me my freedom. It takes me outta here! It takes me to Green Acres, and to Central Perk... It takes me sailing across the galaxy on Voyager and plants me on a bar stool where everybody knows my name. I can buy shoes from Al Bundy! It lets me take a trip on Road Rules! With my tv, I can roam the sewers with Real Monsters and my doctor is Marc Green... And I live at 1313 Mockingbird Lane where the kisses are hers and hers and his. And I have Friends, too, mom! Frasier ...

Crazy Credits

No animals were hurt during the production of this screenplay. Even when the tarantula escaped in the director's house for 8 hours. However, people were killed when we needed bodies for the "Dick on a pile of bodies" scene. The producers regret this, and in retrospect, feel they should have used "fake" bodies. Sorry. See more »

I laughed, I cried... er no, I didn't cry. I laughed some more.

Plain and simply, Jane White is Sick and Twisted is a funny satired B-movie with some of the best acting I've seen in a while, and great writing and directing on the part of David Latt.

I didn't see Jane White for educational purposed, but surprisingly learned a couple things about myself and the world's over-obsession with televison. Although it's all in good fun, it's satire done right, and it makes you think.

Kim Little is great as Jane White, the girl who thinks life is like TV and her dad is the host of the Jerry Show. She has the innocence to pull off the naive character. Wil Wheaton too has a school-boy innocence that makes him the perfect choice to play Dick Smith, Jane's romantic interest. More than once I felt like shooting Dick for his sappy Hallmark language, and I'm pretty sure this is the reaction wanted by David Latt. Alley Mills (the mom from Wonder Years) shows a completely different 'mom' side, as Jane's mother who's afraid to go outside. Chris Hardwick's character Burger is totally unneeded for the plot, but his accent and teeth bring in big laughs. The most memorable performance was Colin Mochrie's, the married man picking up closet transvestite prostitutes.

In summary, this is a movie that is guaranteed to make you laugh. Rent it. Buy it. Do whatever you need to do, just make sure you see it.
