A young woman, Pursy (played by Scarlett Johansson), learns that her estranged mother has died in New Orleans. She returns to her mother's house to discover that it is inhabited by two men, one an aging alcoholic, Bobby Long (John Travolta).Written by
The production ran into budgetary problems halfway through. Several background extras were brought to a New Orleans location, fitted for costumes, fed dinner, and then sent home without pay because their scene had been cut. Some New Orleans retailers complained that thousands of dollars worth of clothes were returned unused because the scenes they were bought for were never filmed. See more »
When Pursy puts dinner on the table for Lawson before she leaves for her date, the stack of books on the kitchen table disappears between shots. See more »
when i first read the plot for this movie i was a bit sceptical, John Travolta and Scarlet Johansson in a movie together? Hmmm... Is this going to be another Lost in Translation? Considering the awesome acting between Bill and Scarlet i at first hand thought that A love song for bobby long would be a bad copy of it. One the other hand i'we never seen Scarlet make a bad flick...
As soon as i started watching it i could not take my eyes of the TV... I have to say this movies is one of 2005 best movies by far. This is NOT a bad copy of (LIT) this is if not better at least as good as it! The script is awesome and the acting MINDBLOWING!
If you still haven't watch it get of your ass and GET IT! This movie will take your mind peace for 1h and 59m!
