Synopsis: A small-town girl wins a date with a male celebrity through a contest. When the date goes better than expected, a love triangle forms between the girl, the male celebrity, and the girl’s best friend.
- Rosalee: You have five smiles Pete. One when you think someone an idiot. One when you think someone’s REALLY an idiot. One when you’re singing to Barry White. One when you’re getting all dressed up. And one when you’re looking at me
- Rosalee: I can’t go with you Tad, because you don’t love me, you maybe want to love me. But I think what you love right now is the idea of me. You can’t love someone for what they stand for or seem to be. You have to love them for their details, for the little things that are true of them and only them.
- Rosalee: [to Tad] Do you think it is possible to love someone your entire life and never realize it until something happens that makes you see?
- Rosalee: Pete told you if you hurt me, he would tear you to pieces with his bare hands or with his rhetoric? That is so… adorable.
- Rosalee: Yikes-a-bee
- Rosalee: Your standing films will time and test themselves.
- Rosalee: You got a call at this hour? From who? A racoon?
- Josh Lucas turned down the role of Tad.
- The real Frazier’s Bottom is located in Putnam County, West Virginia, just west of Charleston. However, most of the filming in West Virginia took place in the Fayetteville (Fayette County) area, which is located roughly fifty miles east of Charleston.
- In the scene near the beginning of the movie, where the camera switches back and forth from Tad to Pete, Pete eventually sits down to dinner with a book. The book is titled “A Good Man is Hard to Find”, which is a short story written by Flannery O’Connor, a prominent Catholic author who lived in the Protestant-dominant south in a small town, probably similar to that of Rosalee and Pete’s small town.
- There is a real-life Tad Hamilton, he is a publicist at, and President of, Mosaic Public Relations.
- Kate Bosworth (Rosalee) has a condition called heterochromia iridum (different colored eyes), and has a hazel right eye and a blue left eye. In some scenes, such as the scene in Rosalee’s bedroom where Pete kisses her for the first time, you can see Rosalee has two bright blue eyes. She was probably made to use colored contacts in some scenes. But in many other scenes you can clearly see her hazel and blue eyes.
