Added DiffLines:

* CoversAlwaysLie: The poster only features Creator/HarveyKeitel, Stockard Channing, and Creator/AshleyJudd, as if they were the main characters, and they were close. Judd's character hardly figures in the movie; and while Keitel plays one of the major characters, Channing plays more of a supporting role.


Added DiffLines:

** When Auggie tells the guys who hang around his store about what happened to Paul's wife (she got caught in the crossfire of a shootout nearby), one of them says, "Film/BadDayAtBlackRock all around, huh, Auggie?"


* GenreSavvy: Auggie correctly guesses the money Rashid gives to him (to make up for what he did; see NiceJobBreakingItHero below) is probably stolen.
