Wayne Colson: Look, honey, just hear me out. I drove 400 miles. And 15 years to think about this. And a lot about what you've said lately. You're right, five's not a good number. It's terrible. So let's try six. And if we can make it to six, then we can try for seven.

A Note Regarding Spoilers
The following FAQ entries may contain spoilers. Only the biggest ones (if any) will be covered with spoiler tags. Spoiler tags have been used sparingly in order to make the page more readable.
Why is this film opening with a limited release with 5 theaters in Arizona?
According to a local news report from Arizona, the Weinsteins decided to release the film in a select five theaters to see how well the film does. If they are satisfied, they will go national with the release. So far the film has earned around 14.5 thousand dollars. Early critics in small newspapers and web-sites are reporting the film works mildly because of Rourke's solid performance. It may be possible the film will reach more theaters, but it's a small chance. A DVD release in 3 to 6 months seems more likely. Similar to other upcoming projects such as "Fanboys", the Weinsteins have not given much information about if the release will be national.
