Movie Trivia/Goofs

  • Movie Goof (continuity error): The morning after Karl slept at the warden's house the scene opens with an exterior view of a one-story house. The next shot is in the interior and shows a set of stairs that are obviously going up to a second floor.
  • Cameo by Col. Bruce Hampton (II) Ret. of Aquarium Rescue Unit and Code Talkers during Doyle's band scene. Col. Bruce is the Tambourine player and can be seen blowing his trademark "Smokeless Smoke Ring" in a close up shot.
  • A remake of the short film Some Folks Call It a Sling Blade (1994). Both were written and starred Billy Bob Thornton.
  • Movie Goof (boom mic visible): Shadow visible in front of a tree when Jerry and Karl are walking.
