Trivia

Jerry refers to two movies when they discuss what to do with Paul's body: Shallow Grave (1994) and "a movie I once saw about some guys who accidentally killed a hooker in Vegas and cut her up and transported her in suitcases". This is a referral to Very Bad Things (1998) where this scene takes place in a hotel room at a bachelor party, exactly the way Jerry describes it. See more »

Goofs

When Monica is talking to Bob by the lighthouse they are in bright late afternoon sunlight. Then Monica says, "I'll see ya Bob," as she turns to walk away. In the next wide shot they are both just dark silhouettes at a late sunset. See more »

Farther Than you Think
14 July 2004 | by mrwarmthSee all my reviews

This is one of those movies where the quality of the acting is far above the material itself. Michael McKean and David Thornton are joys to watch. Also, though the plot is derivative, it is very knowing about business trips and sales people, and if you've ever been on a business trip, you'll find yourself laughing and nodding at many points. The movie never seemed false or strained, just a little weak at the very end. Up to that point, it's an above average investigation of salesmen gone bad. It's a bit like "Very Bad Things" only played more for comedy than for dark drama. Jake Weber, though British, does a very good job playing an American, something that cannot be said of many of his countrymen.
