I doubt anyone will mistake the straight-to-DVD release Jack and Jill vs. the World as a great movie (the above trailer certainly doesn't imply as much), but that's not why I bring it up. This is: You'll find Dallas indie pop act Smile Smile's sweet little ditty "Anymore" (a choice little track, by the way) on the film's soundtrack.

Better yet, the duo's song was given some pretty amazing placement.

"We actually got REALLY lucky," writes guitarist and vocalist Ryan Hamilton. "It's at the end of the movie during the climax/turning point of the film. Girl (Taryn Manning) leaves, Boy (Freddie Prinze Jr.) finds out where she's going and hurries after her. During all of this you get to hear a verse and a couple of chorus's of 'Anymore,' which fades into a song by the band Stars (the movie has a great soundtrack)."

...and I'm sure that's his objective opinion. --Pete Freedman

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
