Trivia

Stephen Lang enjoyed working with costar Brittany Murphy so much, he later tried out and was cast as Sheriff Brent Marken in Cherry Falls (2000). Scheduling conflicts prevented him from playing the role and the part eventually went to veteran actor Michael Biehn. Lang later admitted the only reason he wanted to be in the film was because he would have gotten to work with Murphy again. See more »

Goofs

It was posted that the senator served the entire state not districts. He was a "state" senator not federal so he would be representing districts, not the entire state. The goof post should be removed as it is, in fact a "goof" itself. See more »

I laughed so hard I woke him up!
8 July 2006 | by aliceann-aaSee all my reviews

And, no, he would NOT have liked this movie. Most people obviously didn't. My sides ached. I know most people didn't "get" it. Look at the mess of categories it is in. You cannot pigeonhole this movie. It is an original.

I do understand. I have seen Altman movies that I didn't think were funny, either. But this one hit a home run right up my alley. Not funny? Well, at least it's not a tired, old cliché. I had to get the tissues out because I was laughing so hard I was crying. See? We mix metaphors all the time.

But these clichés have never been mixed so well. How did Nick Nolte, Lesley Ann Warren and Brittany Murphy and the rest of the cast keep straight faces? A whole movie FULL of straight men. The only one who knew he was funny was Nathan Lane ... and he was playing a comedian ... that most people didn't think was funny! How ironic is that?

I just want to say to everyone involved in making this movie: Thank you! I laughed so hard I ruptured my catachresis.
