Alternate Versions

DVD includes 14 deleted scenes: they consist mostly of alternate takes of existing scenes (for example Ronna and Simon discussing outside the store) and longer versions of scenes featured in the theatrical release (such as the first conversation between Todd Gaines and Claire). Also included, however, is an alternate ending for the Vegas storyline, where Simon and Marcus find out they left Todd's credit card in Vegas and realize that the goons are on their tracks. They barricade themselves in Simon's apartment. Meanwhile Victor and his son are at Todd's apartment and are waiting for Simon. Claire finds Todd's gun and points it at Victor unaware that the gun isn't loaded. After a fight, Todd manages to wrestle the gun out of Victor's hands. Todd goes to Simon's apartment and, after Simon lets him in, punches him in the face. See more »

enough of the "Pulp Fiction" comparrisons!
23 October 2002 | by patrickl-1See all my reviews

This film has traces of Pulp Fiction embedded in it, but it's got a little "Swingers" and other films to it as well. All in all it's an entertaining movie which ends without epiphany for these characters (like .....). This film has multiple stories but does not try to be alternative and cool. It just wants to work! Sarah Polley (whom I never heard of at the time but follow her work now) was great; Katie Holmes wasn't quite Katie Holmes - and that was good; Fichtner's good; but my favorite was Timothy Olyphant who did a kick-ass job of a charasmatic bad-guy (it was hard not to hate him by the end). I've read the other comments and these people just take this thing TOO seriously! It's not the movie of 1999, it's not "Pulp Fiction", it's just "Go". I have this movie on DVD and heard Doug Linman's commentary: he sounds like he had a lot of fun making this. I had a killer time watching this. I guess if I came in with different expectations I would've hated it like everyone else on this site!
