Trivia

Some of the background actors at the party at Andre's house are carrying beer bottles. When a crew member was asked why those extras had bottles while the rest of us carried cups, the crew member replied that they "just showed up with the bottles on their own". See more »

Goofs

In the party scene at Andre's house, one of the background actors, William Vidrine, can be seen beside the driver's door of the Mustang, and walking with another background actor just behind Cal. A few moments later, when Ashby takes Cal's taxi and Cal runs out to the street, the same background actor can be seen walking up the street with a female. It was about 4am by that point and most of the other background actors had left, so he had to be used in another position. See more »

Ever have a childhood friend?
23 September 2006 | by LabyrinthQueenSee all my reviews

Well I have. My best friend, Autumn, has been with me since we were in Kindergarten... that's 23 years together. This is what the basic center of Little Chicago's plot surrounds. It is an average story for the most part, nothing unique, but in a time when cinema is trying too hard... back to basics, in a way that is well done, is something quite refreshing. The story follows a couple of childhood friends who eventually go their separate ways, but like all close bonds... there isn't anything you wouldn't do for the ones you love no matter how much time and space may seem to have come between.

The acting is above and beyond, with much material to work with both comedic and emotional. I spent the first part of the movie laughing and then the last 10 minutes crying. Scott Miles (October Sky), Earl Poitier (Remember The Titans), and Adrian Paul (TV's The Highlander) set the gold standard for acting in this independent film (with help from the script that Scott wrote himself). I truly hope that this film is able to find a distributor so that more people may enjoy it as I have.
