The ship disappears out of the screen too quickly. While Bobby and Lawson are talking on the bank of the river, a barge goes across the screen. A close-up comes in for the men, but when it pulls back again, the barge is completely gone. It was a continual scene, with one conversation, but there was nowhere near enough time for the slow moving barge to get out of sight. See more »
when i first read the plot for this movie i was a bit sceptical, John Travolta and Scarlet Johansson in a movie together? Hmmm... Is this going to be another Lost in Translation? Considering the awesome acting between Bill and Scarlet i at first hand thought that A love song for bobby long would be a bad copy of it. One the other hand i'we never seen Scarlet make a bad flick...
As soon as i started watching it i could not take my eyes of the TV... I have to say this movies is one of 2005 best movies by far. This is NOT a bad copy of (LIT) this is if not better at least as good as it! The script is awesome and the acting MINDBLOWING!
If you still haven't watch it get of your ass and GET IT! This movie will take your mind peace for 1h and 59m!
