Actually Ebert gave it 3.5 stars originally, and Siskel loved it. Had it in his top ten of 94 as well.

Did Bill's dad have him at age 15? He looks so bloody young! Like a classic aging hippie. Great look!

Come on, Bill, Clancy Brown is the US Attorney General in Billions. Your first clue is that all the US Attorneys refer to him as "General."

True fact : Michael Douglass was an early champion for the movie. The push by him and some other Hollywood heavyweights caused the film to get discovered by Academy voters.

Bill forgot the ONLY woman with a talking part: the one asking the store manager to make sure Brooks double-bagged. Come on, guys.

Another reason the warden had to be around the same build, is so the suit would realistically fit Andy.

Every Plot Hole Explained

1.Poster was taped on top…Clear duck tape. Opens up while the tape on top hold it up……
2. Andy uses 8 hours to take 5-10 showers. Head and shoulder 10 Bottles………….Olive Oil………… Takes a bath with 10 bottles of shampoo……………..
3.Presses the suit @ a hotel/motel.
4. Adrenaline fight or flight kicks in. Doesn't look tired at all. Maybe he buys cocaine @ Hotel Alley? 3 Cups of coffee. Takes another shower in the morning…….Combs hair in his motel room.
5.Heavy cologne…….@ The Bank.

Fun fact! pulp fiction came out the same day, might be a reason for the box office bomb!

David Proval is the last member of Red's crew. He actually audtioned for Tony Soprano and they cast him as Richie Aprile.

Wow, that's not at all what I expected Dr. Bill to look like. He looks the healthiest of all of them. Is Bill Jr. sleepy or in the bag? Is Chris Ryan OK?

i am one of those folk who saw it during a tough time in my life, and believe it really, really helped me get through. I remember seeing Pulp Fiction a while before which at the time I hated SO much cos it seemed to be stupid and pointless and a bit of a sad view of human nature; saw Shawshank the week it come out (it had got really good reviews on an old Johnny Vaughn Film Review Show, think its the only film they gave a maximum 40/40 for…anyone remember that show? any clips on Youtube of review?).… Read more »

I have one nitpick. Andy spent 20 years in the same cell. Imagine after 18 years Hadley comes “ hey Andy get your shit we are moving you from this cell”

Andy not moving cells over 20 years was helpful. I don't know if this happens in prisons, but it seems like it could have. Two months in the hole and the poster never waivered. How long has it been since the hole was complete? Imagine it being done for more than 2 months and he waited cause he was content until the Warden put him in the hole. I've heard the water Tim Robbins was is was not sanitary for him to be in, let alone the lightning. I feel like the wall by the tree was made for the… Read more »

How many times is Chris Ryan going to push his laptop down? Just keep the lid down. Simple fix.

"I had your mother, she wasn't that great."
The poster nit pick isn't one: the poster hangs from the top so it's an effective curtain; reloads on adhesive from Red.
The sewage crawl: he breathing through his mouth…mostly.
