The small press book An Eye In Shadows speaks of The People Magazine article about Jill Erickson and speculated how much Luke Perry researched his role for the film. He thought Luke was haunting as he sounded like a resident. Locals in the reviews would discuss this film on chat-rooms and related their own Erickson related stories. See more »
The director took creative liberties with the news story. The names were changed in the film hence the factual errors. Bonnie 'n Clyde: 60172, revealed much of the story itself played up in Roselle and most of Hoffman Estates and Schamburg. The scenes of Hanover Park were like in the news story too. The Hanover Park shots were on Elgin-Chicago Road known as Irving Park Road west of the city where it is known as Irving Park along Roselle, Hanover Park, Bensonville, and Itasca. In Elgin the name changes to E. Chicago Street. See more »
Portuguese version misses about 9 minutes of the original movie. There are no scenes of nudity or sex, and not a single swear word. Even the scenes showing characters with guns pointed at their own heads were removed. In Portugal there is no censorship, but it seems the local distributor brought in a version made for American networks. See more »
More often than not, an early title card that reads "inspired by a true story" translates to a film maker's apology for what is going to be an embarrassing work. And electronic titles as well, the cheapest possible-cheap like they use for the late-night cable movies suggests this project was scrapped-pieces pasted together into something presentable, but hardly watchable.
And when you're right, you're right.
Good, lonely boy meets bad, bad girl, in a bad, bad, bad, movie
It seems inappropriate to criticize the actors, as I can't imagine there was even a script. Every scene seems to be a series of bad improvs, almost amateurish audition pieces. I was a John McNaughton fan based on his first feature: "Henry:Portrait of a Serial Killer", a low budget, but high-energy, inventive piece of film making. But this mess is only familiar to that film as regards overall production value.
By my count this makes 5 movies in a row where the high point of Ashley Judd's performance seems to be her undressing and /or use of dirty language. This list includes her role as the young Norma Jean Baker (Marilyn Monroe). Maybe a case of life imitates art?
