Surprisingly for a film with profanity and vulgar references, it manages to stay quite intelligent and upon release, it was well received by critics such as Creator/RogerEbert and Leonard Maltin. The film's success helped jump start the modern independent film industry (which actually began with ''Film/SexLiesAndVideotape'') (more accurately, Jim Jarmmusch's Stranger than Paradise, 1984 and Spike Lee's ''She's Gotta Have It'', 1986) and turned [[Creator/MiramaxFilms Miramax]] into a major distributor for said independent films, rivaled only by Polygram Filmed Entertainment and Fox Searchlight.

** BittersweetEnding: The cut ending is obviously less downbeat as no main characters die. Dante has pretty much completely fucked up his love life and both he and Randall look like they'll be stuck doing their respective jobs until the day they die, but at least they've patched up their friendship.

*** Mostly towards Dante and Randall who they think don't seem to be taking their assumingly simple jobs seriously.
