Missed movie - question


My son was an extra in the movie in a scene with Tom Arnold. We were expecting it to run on December 15 as Spiritual Guilt Trip. Is there any way that we can see this again? Is it expected to rerelease? He did not get to see it on the 4th. And that was even his 9th birthday!! :o(

Thanks

Sorry I cant help you, but what scene was your son in? I really enjoyed this movie.

He was in three scenes. You know how movie making is - they may well have left him on the cutting room floor!! The way it was was Scene 1 he was on the escalator and Tom Arnold rushed past him, Scene 2 he was in the line to see Santa and Tom Arnold rushed past him again.

The 3rd Scene was the big one! The director gave him a line - spontaneously! He was supposed to say, "Wow! I love this gun!" - but the Extra's lady had it cut - Union stuff! :o(

But all the same, he was in a full scene (3) where Present and Tom Arnold come up to him where he is looking at and handling the BB guns. Present grabs the gun from him and after she and Tom Arnold speak, Tom Arnold hands him the gun back, when she is not looking.

Can you tell me something. When they were filming this we could see all of him - front on and a great scene. Did they show all of him (his face and his expressions) or did they end up cutting the scene up?

Thanks for your commiserating!! I am hoping it comes back on tv!!!

If you are in the Vancouver area and can get A Channel, Victoria, I noticed it is airing on Dec 21st at 9pm :) Hope you see him!

Thank YOU!! I will see what I can do. We are actually in 100 Mile House, BC, but have Satelite. Thanks and I will continue watching the stations. :o)

I happened to catch this last night whilst flicking through channels. Your son is very much in the scene, you can see him very clearly, mostly a side view but then they do zoom in to his face as Tom Arnold runs off. You'll enjoy it, he did a wonderful job :) Hope you catch it.

Contact the production company [email protected] They may well have a DVD screener available for purchase.

Was that really necessary? I wonder about what people's lives must be like for them to be so meanspirited for no good reason. I'm on lot's of forums with immature young kids as well as reasoned adults, and it's amazing to me how boorish people can be when hiding behind some screen name on the internet.

What does that say about our society? Is boorish behaviour our base instinct? Are we so miserable in our lives that we need to vent on everyone else, in instances where we are anonymous? Or, is it that the type of people liable to be found on computer forums are maladjusted "techy" "geeky" types who grew up playing alone on computers and/or game systems and never learned how polite society operates?

Granted there are those people who are just as obnoxious in person as they are on line, but, I bet that most snarling forum bullies, would never act the same in public, where the object of their abuse could exact revenge.

The guy asked "Did they show all of him (his face and his expressions) or did they end up cutting the scene up?" He didn't ask for a review of his son's performance.

Congratulations on your son's big break. It sounds like the director was trying to help him get SAG/AFTRA status by spontaneously giving him a line; yes, he can get a card that way. If that interests him, you and he might want to read M.K. Lewis' book about breaking in as an actor.

Why do you have to be such a *beep* retard and talk like that? Yes people ask for opinions and want honesty, but use some tact. You must be a great actor or something, to have such high opinion on the craft of acting? Get a life, sure the movie wasn't the greatest, but niether are you sucky computer geek!

I have a question about the movie. Did the daughter ever forgave her mother for what she did to her dad?

reply

It's not shown in the movie.
