Trivia

When Frank Sinatra, Peter Lawford and Buddy Lester are in the Burlesque nightclub where Buddy works and Buddy's wife starts her strip act, the music she dances to is The Tender Trap (1955) - the theme song from Sinatra's 1955 movie of the same name. See more »

Goofs

At the garbage truck lot early in the movie, Vince mentions Josh's having been awarded the "DSM" (the Distinguished Service Medal). The DSM is the Army's highest non-heroism award for meritorious service, awarded almost exclusively to high-ranking career officers. Vince would have meant to say the "DSC", or the Distinguished Service Cross, the second highest award for valor in combat, after the Medal of Honor. See more »

Quotes

Jimmy Foster: I made a cardinal rule: never to answer the 'phone in December.
Massuese: That's crazy. Why?
Jimmy Foster: Because one December, every time I picked up the 'phone they sent me out into the snow to play with my friends. That was at the Bulge.

Exception of the Rule
9 May 2007 | by See all my reviews

The exception of what rule? The Rule that says (at least as listed in most books) that the original (movie) is better than the remake. Well here comes this movie, to show you, that that isn't the case. A shame then, because the stellar cast (after all you get to see the Rat Pack at work here!) promises so much more, than you actually will get out of it!

Although it seems to be more the fault of the script than the cast, I can assure you that I did watch this movie before I watched the remake (which is crucial, to not be afflicted by the impact of the movie) and it just doesn't sustain the comparison with the remake! That's how I felt!
