Low-budget concerns?

The inserts between scenes used to convey the cross-country travels of Dick and his girlfriend were some of the dumbest things I've ever seen in a Hollywood movie.

Everytime the couple sets off for another city, a map is shown illustrating the route and some miniature car is shown moving along in space while the name of the destination shares the screen.

After each such sequence, the couple is then shown inside some generic-looking room or along some non-descript street, and the switch in location is presumed to be complete.

But it looks more like there was no budget for any sort of location filming with the exception of New York City.

Hence, that other poster's comment on this messageboard about "New Orleans" NOT looking like New Orleans.

"Don't call me 'honey', mac."
"Don't call me 'mac'... HONEY!"
