While on break at the grocery store, Ronna, Claire, and Manny are playing a game naming dead celebrities according to a specific letter. Omar Sharif is mentioned, although he hadn't passed away until July 2015, not in 1999, when the film takes place. See more »

A version shown on the USA network for American television included the normal cuts of nudity and profanity. The following scenes are completely cut from the film: Tiny tells the "contact lens story" on the way to Las Vegas; the guys discuss tantric sex in the restaurant (after the scene at the salad bar, the film cuts to the guys arriving at the Riviera in Las Vegas); Simon has sex with the two women and the room catches fire.

I liked this movie well enough to watch it twice. I waited 'til it came out on video, but made sure to see it, because it stars Sarah Polley, who I've been a fan of since her "Road to Avonlea" days. This is not a serious movie. It's fun, upbeat, quick, and for those with short attention spans. I liked it. I didn't think it was as incredible as some say, but enjoyable enough to watch it twice. So many people have compared it to Pulp Fiction. Frankly, the only similarity I see between the two, is the "jumping around timelines". Which I like. Good movie to watch, just don't bother trying to analyze it - you won't come up with much.
