Goofs

When Hollie is giving her speech at the memorial, we see her walk across the stage and as her pant legs sway they reveal pointy toe stilettos - clearly not suitable for tap dancing. However, when she puts the microphone down and begins her performance, she is suddenly wearing tap shoes. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Dock Worker: [receiving returning good] Welcome back, boys.
Drew Baylor: As somebody once said, there's a difference between a failure and a fiasco. A failure is simply the non-present of success. Any fool can accomplish failure. But a fiasco, a fiasco is a disaster of mythic proportions. A fiasco is a folktale told to others, that makes other people feel more... alive. Because it didn't happen to them.

Wonderful Movie
17 February 2019 | by click08See all my reviews

I loved Kirsten Dunst, who's lovable because of her odd and weird habits. All the actors played marvelous characters which added to the movie's charm. Great unique story. I'm happy I came crossed it by accident.
