Goofs

It is stated at least twice that Vic Edwards was playing on the Tennessee football team during the 1951 season (supposedly a sophomore in college). However, the Wikipedia page Lil pulls up shows that Vic was born in 1936, making him 15 while supposedly playing college football. He would have been a high school sophomore during the 1951 season (in fact, Burt Reynolds was a high school sophomore during the 1951 football season as he graduated high school in 1954). See more »

Quotes

Vic Edwards: You wanna know I needed to come to knoxville, I needed to say goodbye, Goodbye to the town that made me who Iam, Goodbye to the trees I climbed as a kid, Goodbye to the school that tought me how to break the rules, and the streets I wondered late at night, the hidden places that I left all my secrets, The town where I made so many many mistakes, and now its time for one last goodbye.

Pleasantly surprised, emotionally touched
30 March 2018 | by jakehSee all my reviews

Quite honestly I was prepared to dislike this movie. I couldn't pin down exactly why but was I very wrong. I was extremely touched with this thought provoking look at celebrity and age. I have not seen any actor portray their aging with such honesty in their later movies. Reynolds was fabulous and still as blunt and straight forward in his approach to the part as he has before in most of his movies. Ariel Winter, whose character I detested at the beginning, did an excellent job as Reynolds escort at a film festival in Nashville. His life story was a learning experience for her and a teaching lesson on how growing older comes with trials, tribulations, and regrets which she could learn from as she goes on with her own life. Wonderful acting by both, and a must see movie. Simply put, I think it's the best work Reynolds has ever done.
