Almost 5 years after its initial release, I just watched it. And I thought it was a good film, because most (not all) the films filmed in Louisville and area suck. I actually liked this. And the funny thing was that there was a scene filmed in Louisville that takes place in Etown. That scene was the one Drew is in the soccer field talking on the cell phone. The funny thing was that, that was my middle school that I once attended, and yet it is portrayed as Elizabethtown High School. Any thoughts about the movie. I know I am not the only one that has not seen it yet.

I love the movie a lot of people think its to long I love the music. they make etown look small when its really not,but etown is famous so they based it on that i guess,the rich cali kid going to Ky to bury his dad.They show down Etown in the movie you can actually look online to see where some scenes were filmed most were Louisville and area around there. Its just based on elizabethtown ya know great movie. Im from up north got married there though and want to live there God willing..

I love the movie, just because there is so much that is familiar! I love when he's driving on the interstate and you can see the giant Louisville Slugger bat in the background (my mom is a baseball NUT, and of course it makes me think of her)--although I did wonder why the heck he was driving through the tunnel on I-71? going north, when he's supposed to be going South! Then he winds up lost. Well duh! You're going the wrong way--but I suppose his character didn't know that, although even though he had a bloody map! haha I kept wondering the whole time why she didn't just have him take I-65 south the whole way instead of whatever state highway she told him to keep watch for! lol I guess it wasn't as interesting that way.

The soundtrack was great too.

It's one of the few movies with Kirsten Dunst that I've enjoyed in recentyears. I used to really love her work, but at some point I just come to realise I didn't really like her as much anymore. But I liked her in E-town.
