During an interview before the race, Seth MacFarlane's character says his driver and race team will be drinking his energy drink after "lap 600". The Coca Cola 600 is 600 miles, not 600 laps. This is also confirmed later when an on screen graphic shows the current lap "of 400". This could be intentional to indicate that the character is not interested in racing, knows very little about it, and is only interested in advertising his product. See more »
As warden, I can approve buying a copy of A Dance With Dragons for the prison library to go up on the Game of Thrones shelf. Now, the only problem is that The Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring have yet to be published so those aren't available. Well, I can't do anything about what I can't control.
That is total bullshit! George R.R. Martin was supposed to deliver The Winds of Winter to his publisher over two years ago.
I know that was the original deadline. That's what it says here. But I'm...

Now I know what you're thinking: Steven Soderbergh and a comedy crime caper set around a NASCAR race is a perfect combo. Those of you who've seen the Ocean's 11 movies will probably think the same (if you like the Ocean movies)...
Well sadly, I am here to tell you now that you are in for a big disappointment. I too, have seen Ocean's 11 and found it both funny AND thrilling and so went into this film with high expectations and was very badly let down.
This film is titled as a comedy but I found it about as funny as a young boy saying the word "vag***" out loud... Which is what actually what happens.
The real problem of this film is the script, courtesy of Rebecca Blunt. I found it one of the most boring and UN-amusing pieces of screen writing I've ever seen.
The film is only an hour and fifty-nine minutes but it feels like three hours before the heist actually takes place and that would be OK, IF there was material to keep us entertained until then but there just isn't!
Every scene is stretched-out pointlessly long and the dialogue feels it's just there to make the scene longer. What the dialogue DOES do is it drags the scene down and makes it boring and uninteresting. People about anything and everything!
After the fresh and fun scenes of Clooney putting his team together in Ocean's 11, you would think it would be the same in Logan Lucky but it's actually just as boring as the rest of the dialogue, just people talking for the sake of talking!
Moving on... One thing I will say for Soderbergh is he casts very well and he seems to get the best from his cast. The main characters give very good performances.
Tatum and Driver turn in performances TOTALLY different to what they are used to as the dumb, hill billy brothers and actually play the parts very well. Craig too is like you've NEVER seen him before as the bleached blond, crazy-eyed Joe Bang and actually plays the part (and does the accent,for those of you who've seen Cowboys and Aliens) strongly and with real zest! Any more crazy and he'd be a runner up for may be the Joker.
Good and convincing from ALL supporting actors: Riley Keough, Jack Quaid and Katie Holmes... However these did little to revive a boring, non-funny and rather convoluted movie!
Only at the end was I REMOTELY entertained but still, I was fighting to stay awake...
What makes this film such a disappointment is how much potential it had (with the plot) of being a really good and fun film. It makes me wonder if may be in another director and writer's hands (say: Wes Anderson); this could have been everything it promised to be but unfortunately, IT... WAS... NOT!
