A man searches for his missing wife after his car breaks down in the middle of the desert.
Red's (J.T. Walsh's) 18-wheeler is visible, in the background behind Earl (M.C. Gainey), when he first approaches Jeff at the gas station.
If I never see another couple from Massachusetts it'll be too soon.
When Jeff breaks into the trailer house toward the end, he first breaks the window out of the door and then tries the outside doorknob.
The film originally had a prologue added at the behest of the producers showing Kurt Russell's character as a cameraman in a war zone. He witnesses the death of a young girl and this prompts the cross country trip with his wife to start a new job. Director Jonathan Mostow did not like the opening and asked Paramount to test screen one version with the prologue and one without. After the screenings, the studio executives agreed with Mostow and opted to remove the prologue.
