The tone of the film is also somewhat similar to the film adaptation of
EDDIE COYLE, although not as bleak. The character's name in the film is
also Jackie Brown; everything I've read attributes the 1997 film name
Jackie Brown as a tie to Grier's Foxy Brown character, however, but that
could just be an unawareness of the EDDIE COYLE character and an inside
joke for Tarantino.

I also remember a scene where Forster comes out of a theater, and there's
a poster for THE AMERICAN PRESIDENT, which came out in 1995.
