Apple:
I love your nose.

Carrie Ann:
Oh, thanks. I wanted to get my nose done since I was ten. It wasn't as simple as I thought. The doctors found out that I didn't have any cartilage in the tip of my nose. So then he needs to do that. Um, my nose was too long, so, I needed to shorten it. And then it was too wide so I had to thin it. And, uh, it was just a lot more complicated than I thought. My nose was just an insane amount of money.

User Review

I saw it 1st

Rating: 7/10


This is my 1st ever post on IMDb so I apologise in advance if it's
crap! I was 1 of the 1st members of public to see this film as I
attended a preview for research and marketing purposes and i had to
fill in a questionnaire at the end…yadayadayada (U know what i mean).
The film was not what i expected at all. I was expecting a load of drug
taking scenes and thought the whole film would have a "dirty" feel to
it such as "Blow" or "Pulp Fiction" but it actually turned out to be a
very sensitive film. I was moved by the emotional story of this guy's
messed up childhood. I was extremely impressed by Claire Forlani's
performance even though she's not in the film for that long. This film
will give you goosebumps and a trembling lip from the emotional
roller-coaster that is this Flashbacks Of A Fool. Good film. Girls in
their 30s to late 40s will prefer it to guys. Great 70s Soundtrack (and
that's coming from me, a 23 year old!) The soundtrack album should be
really good.

Thanks for devoting 2 minutes of your life to read this! I really
appreciate it.
