Did You Know?


Actors were encouraged to improvise after they nailed their scripted takes, with the exception of two brief scenes, which were completely ad-libbed. The first is Nick begging his wife for sex, the second features Nick pleading to be allowed back in the bedroom. See more »


The producers ran out of money halfway through production and nine months passed before money was raised to resume. This accounts for various actors' fluctuating weight and changing hair length, as well as seasonal changes in background foliage, etc. See more »


Shea: Yeah, he was jealous.
Patrick: Must be insecurity. Was he deformed in some grotesque way? Was he a lefty?

Interesting with great extras
18 January 2006 | by See all my reviews

The story for this is OK. Four guys and their warty relationships. I liked it, but my wife thought it stunk, she felt there were no likable characters. While I agree with her on that point,I especially disliked the loser teacher (reminded me a bit too much of loser teacher in Sideways) the film still did a good job of showing "the relationship" in all its screwed up glory.I also agree with a previous post regarding the in media res conceit at the start. Just plopping us down in the middle of one the affairs made it difficult to catch the drift of the story.

The extras are great, especially the how-to on getting a film produced. Icing on the cake is the soundtrack by the Hot Club of Cowtown. Great western swing which works even if you don't like the film. Only drawback with the soundtrack is that it is a bit short. Still, a great listen.
