Trivia

The US Army (and the Reserve Component of each branch of the US Military) actually has a mechanism in place to prevent the problem Leslie faces in the film. Leslie states that her husband is deployed with the Army National Guard (a Reserve Component of the US Army) and that if she does not return to work soon, her children will lose their health insurance. Part of her husband's mobilization training would have included a briefing for the unit's spouses on the benefits they (and their children) would be entitled to while their Soldiers were deployed, including enrollment in the (free) military family health insurance program Tricare. Even if Leslie chose not to attend the briefing, her husband would have been aware of the availability of Tricare to her and the children (and would have told her about it). Even if by some calamity he didn't tell her about Tricare, someone from the unit's family support organization (the Family Readiness Group) would have told Leslie about the availability of Tricare.

Pretty good, actually
23 September 2008 | by jeepcj5guySee all my reviews

Quirky and unexpected are probably the best ways to describe this film. Lisa Kudrow is actually pretty convincing as the burned-out army wife and gives a pretty solid performance throughout. Mainly I was impressed at the subtlety of her acting, which was refreshing after seeing some of her other characters (the smelly-cat-singing Phoebe will always be a lingering specter for Kudrow). Scott Prendergast captured the socially-inept, guy-that-never-got-his-act-together-after-high-school character pretty well and manages to drive the story with very little actual dialogue, emotion or expression, which is kind of the point of his character. His performance was actually pretty refreshing. I think the writer/director did a good job of portraying the embellished strangeness of small town middle America without ripping off Napoleon Dynamite. The ending was well done and the soundtrack is really good and kind of makes the movie come together.
