Overview

Country singer Dwight Yoakam is a co-producer of this Miramax comedy about marital infidelity among the Southern redneck set. Auto dealer Lonnie Earl Billy Bob Thornton and his wife, Darlene Natasha Richardson, are best friends with good-natured Roy Patrick Swayze and his spitfire wife, Candy Charlize Theron, who's ovulating and trying to become pregnant. When the quartet of Arkansas natives decides to take an SUV cross-country to a monster truck show in Reno, NV, an alarming secret is revealed: Lonnie Earl and Candy have been having an affair. The revelation comes as a shock to the guileless Roy and much put-upon Darlene, who absconds with her husband's credit cards for a spending spree that includes designer boutiques and a Tony Orlando concert. Meanwhile, Candy's quest to have a baby takes on a new dimension in light of her extracurricular activities with Lonnie Earl. Waking Up in Reno 2002 is based on a script by longtime screenwriting partners/actors Brent Briscoe and Mark Fauser, who also play supporting roles in the film.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Waking Up in Reno was originally entitled Wakin' Up in Reno, but the King's English "g" was affixed on the end, apparently in an attempt to make it seem less provincially Southern. Jordan Brady's film actually succeeds in that regard without any title finagling, respecting its quartet of essentially good-natured but flawed protagonists whose close friendships have made them recklessly familiar with each other's spouses. Once the film gets going on the road to Reno, it unfolds as a nice character study that steadily builds toward a third-act blowup that's zanier than it needed to be, but still pretty heartfelt. Even though Miramax showed little confidence in the film by delaying its release several times, the balanced script justifies the leap of faith shown by its talented cast. Billy Bob Thornton, Charlize Theron, and Natasha Richardson have frequently been recognized for their skills, but the much-maligned Patrick Swayze puts forward a deceptively subtle performance that suggests his resurgence in the previous year's Donnie Darko was no fluke. The strength of the script is that it never needs to go outside this foursome to sustain interest. Co-writers Brent Briscoe and Mark Fauser pepper the journey with set pieces that straddle the line between straight comedy and telling character development. One wouldn't want to over-praise Waking Up in Reno, and the hasty ending gives enough pause to prevent that from happening. But for a movie with dismal-looking trailers that was lucky to get off the scrap heap, it's pleasing stuff.

    Best Kept Secret

    I had never heard of the movie until I was surfing through the satellite and saw it. It is very funny, and the acting is awesome by all four actors, very believable!

    Hiliarious

    This movie must have been a 'sleeper'. I had not heard of it and few video shops seemed to carry it. As a Patrick Swaye fan from way back, when I found a used copy at a video shop on DVD in a large city, I snapped it up and never stopped laughing! Billy Bob Thornton was also at his funniest and I love Charlize Theron, no matter what she is in.
