Movie Quotes:“>Voice Over]
Johnny Doyle: The poolhall's a great equalizer. In the poolhall, nobody cares how old you are, how young you are, what color your skin is or how much money you've got in your pocket… It's about how you move. And I remember this kid once who could move around a pool table like nobody had ever seen. I mean, hour after hour, rack after rack, his shots just went in. The cue was part of his arm and the balls had eyes. And the thing that made him so good was… He thought he could never miss. I know, 'cause that kid was me.

Trivia: There are 5 entries in the trivia list – like these:
- Christopher Walken made the difficult trick shot to win the match against Tara's (Eastwood) boss on the first take. He was supposed to make a “trial run” for the scene, but he asked that the cameras go ahead and roll, in case he happened to make it on his first try, and he did.
- There were no camera tricks or special film editing used for any of the billiards shots in the film, although many of the special “trick shots” (other than the one above) were performed by billiards legend 'Robert LeBlanc', who appears as professional “Bobby LeBlanc” in the film.
- The band scene was filmed at the Dead Goat Saloon in the Arrowhead Plaza in Salt Lake City, Utah. The only differences between the movie version and the real saloon are the drapes behind the band and that the dance floor does not have round tables.
