The film infers that Diana Barrymore's career ended as a result of the bad preview audience reaction to her first and only film and her refusal to go back and do retakes; actually, she had a leading role in six films over a two year period, and reviewers tended to be polite and complimentary, although not enthusiastic.

I just finished reading the book "Too Much Too Soon" and was looking forward to seeing this film. However, this film barely resembles the book. None of the events were consistent with the book with the exception that Diana was married three times and that her parents were Michael Strange and John Barrymore. The script and direction are so shallow. The film could simply be about any alcoholic anywhere. The performances, however, were tremendous and deserving of a better script. With how far they departed from Diana Barrymore's book, it is a wonder that they bothered to make the film at all. It looks like they just took one more chance at capitalizing on the Barrymore name. What a shame.
