Burt and Vicky are traveling through Nebraska, and Vicky pulls out a typical Kansas-Nebraska map. Kansas on one side, and Nebraska on the other. The front shot clearly shows that she is looking at the wrong side of the map. Nebraska is facing the camera.
The next shot is from the side, showing that they are looking at the Kansas side of the map, while discussing both real and imaginary Nebraska locations.
Incidentally, the real Nebraska locations of Grand Island and Hemingford are not near Kansas, or each other for that matter. See more »

In my opinion this is an entertaining film and doesn't deserve all the stick it gets, it isn't great by any means however it's a good film too watch when your bored also a good film to watch with your friends on a night in. I do recommend this film if you have read the short story or if you are a Stephen King fan also to all you 80's cult fans.
***/***** Good film.
