Trivia

The plot about a terminally ill man shooting rude people is possibly inspired in the short story "To All The Rude People" by Jack Ritchie, published in 1961 and compiled in the anthology by Alfred Hitchcock "Not for the Nervous". See more »

Goofs

When Roxy finds Frank's motel room and she's inside the suit bag daring Frank to commit suicide, her hair band is falling down, but in the next cut it is already fixed, although her arms are inside the bag (so she couldn't fix it herself). See more »

Quotes

Alison: [on phone with Frank] Brad and I are getting married.
Frank: Well, tell Brad, uh... when he's down there to smell my balls, alright?

"No one has any shame anymore, and we're supposed to celebrate it."
18 April 2012 | by See all my reviews

Bobcat Goldthwait's latest feature as writer & director is a hilarious & articulately written black comedy commentary on contemporary American culture, or lack thereof. Yes, mass media's influence on the devolution of society has been tackled before (Oliver Stone's Natural Born Killers & Euros Lyn's Fifteen Million Merits, for example) and the script has it's issues (which are plausibility/suspension of disbelief related IMO) but the dialogue does have monologues & diatribes that I think really do shine. The acting is FTW, and the whole small budget meets meaningful repartee feel of the piece threw me back to Mark Osbourne's 2000 film "Dropping Out". Most definitely catch it if you can! 8D
