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 »

one of the funniest I've ever seen!
12 December 2006 | by misshoney232000See all my reviews

I saw this movie on Cinemax and could not stop laughing. David Thornton was hilarious.The movie is so funny because it so realistic when it comes to the details of traveling salesmen. Unfortunately, this movie isn't getting the justice it deserves, but perhaps that is due to an audience that is tainted by our "contemporary" concepts of "comedy" that have nothing to do with reality. Anyone who appreciates comedy revolving around everyday mishaps and cheap pathetic traveling salesmen, will find that the day to day humor is undeniably hilarious. The plot is crafty, albeit it is a dark comedy but its subject matter still retains comedic value for most open-minded audiences. Michael McKean performs a perfect portrayal of a mid-level sales streetwise sales manager and perfectly complements Davis Thornton's cheap alcoholic character Jerry. I thought Maria Bello's performance was nothing much more than average, and definitely not nearly as realistic as McKean and Thornton.
