R | | Comedy, Crime
After hearing that his wife sleeps with Clay, Earl kills himself, making it look like Clay shot him. She doesn't like it when Clay sees another woman instead. Bodies start piling up.
Joaquin Phoenix was at first apprehensive about taking the role of Clay because he feared that the scripts combination of humor and violence wouldn't translate well to the screen. However, Phoenix changed his mind after meeting an enthusiastic Director David Dobkin and took the role.
Clay, do me a favor; don't find anymore dead bodies?
When Clay pushes the truck with the dead guy in it over the cliff, the truck eventually explodes in a huge fireball. But later, when the police investigate the incident, the truck is not charred by fire at all.
At the end of the closing credits Lester Long says "You gotta good sense of humor, I like that" and does his bizarre laugh.
Dutch video version oddly has all expletives erased or edited. Shot of naked corpse floating in water has been censored.
