A 1999 drama film about dysfunctional people in Los Angeles, with LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters (as the page quote illustrates), written and directed by Creator/PaulThomasAnderson (''Film/BoogieNights'', ''Film/ThereWillBeBlood'') and partly inspired by the songs of Aimee Mann. Told in a series of [[HyperlinkStory interlocking stories]]. Known for being over three hours long, and for [[GainaxEnding possibly the most non-sequitur third-act twist of all time]], as well as for getting an Oscar Nomination for Creator/TomCruise.

* HollywoodLaw: In-universe: in the urban legend about the son shot by his mother while leaping from the roof in a suicide attempt, the narrator says that the mother was charged with murder. However, without the requisite intent, the appropriate charge would be manslaughter.

* BillingDisplacement: Where's Alfred Molina? Oh, there he is. In one scene early on in the film. Despite of this, he is even credited above Melora Walters.



* FridgeHorror: The suggestion that [[spoiler:Jimmy Gator molested his daughter]] is horrifying. It's even more horrifying when you remember [[spoiler:his job involves working directly with children.]]
