The song "Skeeter Pie" in the closing credits was written as a backup if they had been unable to get rights to the Lynyrd Skynyrd song in the trailer park scene. See more »
Early in the film when Francine is talking with one of the developers, they pass a sign in the foreground that says "Amelia Island", the filming location, instead of the film's fictional location, Plantation Island. See more »
... the fast forward button is definitely your friend on this one. This is basically a good story with some interesting characters, but most of the scenes are waayy tooo loooong! The plot revolves around the struggle between greedy developers and the good folks of Plantation Island, Fl. Of course we get the standard weaving of personal struggles into the bigger story line, and this is where this picture fails. Many of these sub-plots go on forever and are never resolved. It's almost like the director decided after 2 1/2 hours "gee I guess I better end the movie now". This film features many very good, well known actors (Edie Falco, Gordon Clapp, Mary Steenburgen, just to name a few), and they all do a excellent jobs, given the overall weakness of the script. I give this movie a 5/10.
