R | | Comedy, Drama
An actor prepping for an upcoming role meets a quirky grocery clerk, and together they hit the road to show each other their respective worlds.
Director and producer Brad Silberling gave his two leading characters lots of freedom to improvise during shooting. Lots of scenes in the movie were totally improvised on the spot. The dance scene by Morgan Freeman at the car wash is a good example. The singing scene in the car by Vega and Freeman is another example of total improvisation.
Sorry, what was your name again?
Him: Are we lost, Packy?
Impossible time line. After working eight-hour-shift at grocery store that ends in mid-afternoon (store opens at 7 a.m., meaning she gets off at 3 or 4 p.m.), Scarlet claims she must rush to job interview at construction site that supposedly would close at 5 or 6 p.m. But before going to interview she somehow still finds time to have fight with ex-husband and smash his girlfriend's car in a trailer park, go on shopping spree at Target, have car washed, go to fast food restaurant and have long philosophical discussion with another character - and still make an appointment a mere two hours later.
"and no gremlins were harmed."
