Did You Know?


Real-life actor siblings Joyce Van Patten and Dick Van Patten were romantically paired in the script (even though they were unrelated within confines of plot), one of few (if only) times a brother/sister acting duo were ever cast as onscreen paramours. One scene even shows them briefly necking. See more »

Doesn't make it.
4 December 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

John Erman's big screen debut explains why he never directed another theatrical release for 2 decades;1990s Stella starring Bette Midler. Making It, a dreadful film, practically dies on screen in the opening scene. The film has no pace, style, tone, atmosphere or rhythm; if feels like a TV sitcom on valium. The main character is played by a young, scrawny, charmless Kris Tabori whose character is merely a set of attitudes rather than a real person. The relationships are notably underdeveloped and unconvincing as are the film's shifts in tone. With a supporting cast made up of clichéd teens and clichéd over 30 failures, the film is neither funny nor dramatically sound. It's an amateurish film on every level. 20th Century Fox should have shelved this one though ultimately they buried it.
