Because of their busy schedules, Carrie-Anne Moss and Alec Baldwin could not come up to set sometimes. Most of the times, Nikki Reed and the director were working on the scenes alone. In a Tribeca Film Festival interview with the director, Reed stated that this situation really helped them. See more »

Went to see at Tribeca Film fest along with a few other films and this was by far the best. Funny, twisted, weird, grabs you by the throat and doesn't let go. One of the best black comedies I've seen in years. Gotta like the darker side to enjoy it, but the ending is one of the funniest/sickest ones you'll ever see.
Nikki Reed is turning into an awesome young actress. Baldwin found something in this role that is hard to explain. You shouldn't feel sorry for his character, but you do. Goldblum and Moss steal every scene they're in. I had no idea Moss could be so funny. Made me forget Trinity, if that's possible. Luke Wilson has the courage to underplay a role that could have been really cheesy and ends up driving the second half of the movie as the calm, methodical detective.
Don't know when exactly it's coming out. They said late summer/fall. I think it might be one of those sleepers that catches on.
