Gus Van Sant was very pleased that his movie was being produced, and would be distributed by New Line Cinema, a major studio. He wanted the movie to have a wide release and "play in shopping malls."

This resulted in the movie having a very limited number of prints struck, and only playing in select art house theaters. Van Sant says he might as well have made the movie independently.
