Ben Affleck's character of "Gunner" was inspired by the life of Ted Steeg, who also appears in the movie as the Minister. Dan Wakefield, the film's screenwriter (and author of the adapted novel) also appears briefly in the film (as Farmer #2). Wakefield and Steeg were friends in Indiana, who later roomed together in New York City's Greenwich Village. Wakefield chronicles this halcyon period in his book, "New York in the Fifties", which was also made into a documentary in 2001. See more »
In an early scene in the film, the RCA Dome (Home of the Colts) is clearly visible behind Union Station. It is painted out of a later shot at the same location. See more »
==ULMER'S RENTAL REVIEW= "Going All the Way," though catchy and engaging, fails to deliver what it promises so clearly, and the incompetent script makes us forget to care about these characters. Usually a film like this one shows some character progression going on. "Going All the Way" doesn't, and it's a shame, because it had some great potential.
Pre-stardom Ben Affleck is not even enough to see this movie for. He's not that different anyway: He couldn't act and he still can't.
