Did You Know?

Trivia:
Dedicated to the memory of Merv Griffin, who shepherded the project from idea to final credit.

Goofs:
Anachronisms: The shirt Robbie is embroidering has an Interstate Highway system logo for I-66 on it; it should be a US Route logo for US 66. I-66 wouldn't exist for many years, and wasn't anywhere near where they went.

Quotes:
Bill Massey: As a man, there's only one thing you need to know about a woman.
George Devereaux: What's that?
Bill Massey: They're never the right temperature.
George Devereaux: No?
Bill Massey: Something to do with their plumbing. Reproduction. Whatever reason, most of the time... they're either too hot or too cold. Mostly too cold. So what you have to do... is carry a sweater or a jacket or something with you at all times. Something you can keep in the trunk of your car... or in your closet at work... for when their thermostat gets messed up.
George Devereaux: What else?
Bill Massey: That's it. Once you've got that covered... there's nothing else you need to know about a woman.



User Review

Wonderful Nostalgia

Rating: 10/10

I've just seen the European Premiere at the Berlin Film Festival. Although it did not win the major prize it was very well received. I enjoyed it enormously. It tells of a 1930's high society mother (Renee Zellwegger - never better) who walks out on her unfaithful husband (Kevin Bacon) after discovering another woman in his bed. She sets out with her two sons on a road trip across America to find a new rich partner who can keep her and her sons in the style they have become accustomed. One of her sons is serious and bookish and regrets missing his schooling while the other is an extremely effeminate gay who dreams of becoming a Hollywood star (a wonderfully camp performance by Mark Rendall who 'steals the picture' with some superbly funny quips). The journey across America and the weird and wonderful characters they meet make this an exceedingly engaging 'Road Movie'. It is beautifully photographed and well acted and directed. The dialogue is sharp, funny and entertaining. Highly recommended!
