Goofs

As Sheila enters the bank with Mark on Saturday, you see the bank's hours posted on the door as Mon-Thu 8:00-4:00, Fri 8:00-5:00, with no mention of Saturday, so presumably the bank not open on Saturdays, however key plot points take place on Saturday with the bank open. See more »

Quirky - I liked it.
15 March 2006 | by TraduttoreSee all my reviews

Definitely recommended. I arrived at this site after searching under the keywords: Alicia Silverstone, Film, Desert and Bank. In other words, although I couldn't remember the name of the film, since there are certain scenes that occasionally come to mind, I thought I'd try to find it. It must be a year since I saw it last - I think that was the second viewing - but I'm quite determined to buy a copy. The only negative point I can remember is with reference to John Cleese whose part was perhaps not entirely satisfying. On the other hand, all the other characters are simply wonderful. I loved the interviews between the bank manager and Alicia Silverstone's character - very, very watchable.
