The scenery was enough to make wish that I had been born and raised in that part of the South. I love the blues and I thought the sound track really rocked. Buddy Guy is one of all-time great electric guitar players but I have never heard of him venturing down to LA from Chicago to play.
One minor criticism: Dave always wore a seersucker sport coat. That was NOT a seersucker jacket Tommy Lee Jones was wearing. The wardrobe people must have been a bunch of Yankees who didn't have a clue what a seersucker even looks like.
But there was one very glaring and totally inexcusable error: When the War Between the States Confederate General talks to Dave he refers to his unit as the "Calvary." Didn't these film makers ever go to church or serve in the army? "Calvary" is the name of the hill upon which Jesus of Nazareth was crucified. The army unit is the "Cavalry."
That should have been caught and corrected. That almost ruined an otherwise enjoyable movie for me. If that mistake didn't bother you it should have.

Glad to have you on board, Dougie. Keep posting.
