Goofs

(at around 1 min) The priest is shown Terry's arrest record by a police officer. The record is for an arrest on January 12, 1986, and shows his date of birth as October 25, 1952, and his age as 37. Terry would have been 33 on that date in 1986, not 37. See more »

Quotes

Terry Dean: I'm dead aren't I? Where the hell am I? You God?
God: You're not a religious man are you, Mr Dean?
Terry Dean: No but, I did plan to get very religious just before I died. You know, just in case.
God: Yes.
Terry Dean: Left it a bit late, didn't I?
God: Hmmm. Let me put it in language you'll understand. You're on probation, Mr Dean. Think of me as your probation officer.
Terry Dean: Probation officer? Sure.
God: I've been through your sheet, Mr Dean. You have a criminal record that started when you were nine years old.
Terry Dean: Yeah, well... I don't suppose I...

Hogan's hidden writing qualities.
14 December 1999 | by Bing-18See all my reviews

One of the most overlooked performances in years goes to Elias Koteas as the paraplegic who introduces the 'born again' Hogan into the story of a care centre under threat of closure. It is sensitive and touching without being over sentimental or condescending.

This shows a hidden quality in Hogan's writing that Hollywood missed in his post-Crocodile Dundee movies, and is also in evidence in Lightning Jack and the part of Cuba Gooding Jnr. This movie may not have the charm of Dundee, but the comedy is there and it is certainly more thought provoking about our attitudes to the disabled.

A very good movie.
