- Hilarious in Hindsight: Mo'Nique plays a character named Precious. Yeah.
- WTH, Casting Agency?: One of the biggest cases of this in film. The likeable and charismatic Cuba Gooding Jr.. as a Professional Killer with ice water in his veins (and irresistible sex symbol)? Helen Mirren as his mentor/mother figure/lover? Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a shady Back-Alley Doctor and Mo'Nique as his crack-addicted, verbally (and physically) abusive lover/benefactor? In the words of Nathan Rabin, the film's casting can only be described as Dadaist.
YMMV / Shadowboxer
