Timothy Olyphant, who plays Todd, thought the character needed a neck tattoo. However, the director, Doug Liman, thought it was a bad idea, because it would make him appear too sinister. The next day, Olyphant showed up with a temporary tattoo of a pair of flaming dice that the make-up department had stamped on his neck. Liman ended up liking it and it stayed in the movie. See more »

And whack! It hits her in the eye. And her contact? It's, like, stuck on the end of my dick!
[Tiny waits for a reaction, but his friends are unimpressed. Only Marcus, in the front passenger seat, turns his head, alertly, like a lion smelling prey]
Yo, her contact was stuck on the end of my dick, yo!
Was it hard or was it soft?
What, my dick?
The contact lens!
Do you remember if it was a colored lens? That she used to have two blue eyes, and now she had one blue and one brown?

On the Christmas Eve, the cashier of supermarket Ronna Martin (Sarah Polley) is completely broken and will be evicted from her apartment on the next morning. She accepts the offer to cover the shift of her British co-worker Simon Baines (Desmond Askew) that wants to travel to Las Vegas to have more money. While working, the clients Adam (Scott Wolf) and Zach (Jay Mohr) seek out Simon to buy ecstasy and ask Ronna if she can get the drug for them. Ronna goes to the apartment of Simon's drug dealer Todd Gaines (Timothy Olyphant) to buy the ecstasy but she does not have enough money for twenty pills; so her friend and colleague Claire Montgomery (Katie Holmes) stays with Todd to guarantee the payment. When she goes to the address of Adam and Zach, she meets Burke (William Fichtner) and suspects that he might be an FBI agent. She drops the ecstasy in the toilet and flushes it. Now she has neither the drugs nor the money to give to Todd. Meanwhile Simon travels to Las Vegas and gets into trouble in a night-club with very dangerous people and he needs to flee from the town with his friends. Meanwhile, Burke drops the charges against the informers Adam and Scott and invites them to spend Christmas night having dinner with his wife and him, but Burke has a secret agenda.
"Go" entwines three segments with the stories of three employees of a supermarket on the Christmas Eve. The screenplay is very well written with three simultaneous stories disclosed independently with points of contact. The cast is fantastic highlighting the extraordinary Sarah Polley. The confusions are hilarious and the weakest segment is the one relative to the gay actors Adam and Zach. My vote is eight.
Title (Brazil): "Vamos Nessa" ("Let's Go")
