Trivia

After a few years of playing adult roles, this was the first of three high school roles in a row for Piper Perabo. She was cast as a teenager, although she was already in her mid-20's at the time. She'd already been a bartender in Coyote Ugly (2000) and a government agent in The Adventures of Rocky & Bullwinkle (2000), amongst other roles. See more »

Goofs

Mary talks about not knowing what fun was before, "like Dr. Spock," rather than Mr. Spock. She is apparently paraphrasing a statement by the iconic character in Star Trek: The Original Series: This Side of Paradise. See more »

Quotes

[while Tori is dancing with her father, Paulie appears at the party dressed in a men's suit. As she is walking in, everyone is looking at her. She walks over to where Tori and her father are, and just stands there staring at Tori. A few seconds later, Bruce looks over at Paulie. Then Tori looks over too. Paulie steps in closer to them]
Paulie: Good evening, Victoria. Hello Bruce!
Bruce Moller: Good evening.
Paulie: Bruce, I wonder if I might cut in?
Bruce Moller: This is a joke, right?
Paulie: Joke? I'm asking you... nicely... can I dance with ...

About the film "Lost & Delirious"
14 January 2002 | by amarinesgrrlSee all my reviews

There are few words to describe a movie such as "Lost and Delirious." The most conspicuous being "beautiful." No matter what your views may be on homosexuality, there isn't a person out there who can truly say that they did not feel the tremendous pain that Paulie felt when Tori walked out of her life. Every camera angle, tape speed, background, audio effects...everything...in this movie is absolutely perfect. I've never seen anything like it. The only other picture I can remember of this same artistic caliber would be John Duigan's 1998 film "Lawn Dogs." However, even it does not leave you with the emotional sting that "Lost and Delirious" does. The bottom line is, do NOT rule out this film because of the basis of it's storyline. It is not all about the sexual relations & lesbian activity. It is very much a deep look into the human spirit.
