Trivia

On one particular shoot day, the production was stalled for over an hour due to tremendous rain that flooded the generators powering the lights on set, as well as the catering truck which was severely damaged. A tree even collapsed on an exterior table that, less than an hour before, had sat several primary cast members. See more »

Highly recommended
9 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

The Night of the White Pants is a funny, honest, yet upbeat film about a dysfunctional Texas family and the night from hell. Auteur Amy Talkington is on top of her game here: the one liners are priceless, and she obviously knows her way around Texas, the punk rock scene, and the occasional fancy hotel. The film has the frenetic energy of the perfect night out, the authentic ring of a great punk song, and the carefree spirit of a particularly wild prom night for grownups. There's great chemistry between the two leads, Nick Stahl and Tom Wilkenson, while Fran Kranz updates Jeff Spicoli to fantastic effect and steals scenes right and left. Put it this way: Anyone who enjoyed Little Miss Sunshine or Slums of Beverly Hills will love it.
