Trivia

Several notable characters from the novel were cut from the film: Terri Stambaugh, owner of the Grille Odd works at, motherly figure, and a walking encyclopedia of Elvis knowledge; DJ Shamus, blind radio host (a sign can be seen advertising his radio station when Stormy and Odd first walk into Green Moon Bowling Alley); and the ghost of Elvis. Little Ozzie also had an important role in the novel, as he was the one who convinced Odd to write his story, but is only in one scene of the film. See more »

A much better movie than you'd expect.
25 June 2013 | by See all my reviews

This is my first review i've done of a movie on IMDb, so maybe that alone shows how much I enjoyed this movie.

It was filled with action, adventure, romance, heart, even mild comedy when the character of Oz (Patton Oswalt) was introduced. This movie like most new movies is very fast paced, and witty with the word play and sarcastic tones that some characters had. The lead roles were chosen wonderfully. Anton Yelchin (Odd) in one of his maybe breakout rolls. I'd hope to see him play more lead roles very soon as he is a great actor, you can even tell by his large amount of upcoming movies in 2013 and 14. DaFoe was outstanding as he much always is, his character had bits and pieces it would seem from his role as the main Detective of The Boondock Saints. The supporting roles were great, and there's a twist at the end that caught me off guard.

Great movie!
