VW TDI cameo in “The Lookout”

Posted By on October 7, 2007

The Look outWe rented a DVD movie called the “The Lookout” with Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Jeff Daniels which was set in a small northern farm town. The main character was a high school hockey star named Chris Pratt (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), and he foolishly drives his convertible with friends down the highway with the headlights off … and proceeds to crash into farm machinery. The accident kills two of his friends and leaves him with a brain injury that affects his memory. Chris is able to only function with the aid of a notebook and to work a janitorial job in a bank. He lives with a blind friend (Jeff Daniels) who is exceptionally sharp, but become involved with a group of bank robbers that proceed to convince him to assist in robbing the bank he works at.

The movie isn’t anything exceptional, but does offer a unique cameo appearance by a vehicle a few reading this blog will probably recognize.
Thought this comment was interesting:

If you look at the Jetta that Chris drives, you will notice that the amount of damage to the bug-deflector on the front of his car changes almost every time we see the vehicle. It starts off with the left side of the bug deflector missing, then both sides are missing and finally it goes back to just the left side missing.
