Trivia

Screenwriter Charlie Peters wrote Kiss Me Goodbye (1982) which was a remake of the Brazilian movie Dona Flor and Her Two Husbands (1976) [Dona Flor and Her Two Husbands]. That movie and its source novel were both set in Brazil, South America, where Blame It on Rio (1984) is mostly set, with the American remake Kiss Me Goodbye (1982) being set in the USA. The original Brazilian film had a number of 'boudoir farce' story elements which were taken out for this American remake. Peters then around two years later co-wrote another American remake, Blame It on Rio (1984), which also takes place in Brazil, re-setting the action there from the Côte d'Azur in France where its source French film, In a Wild Moment (1977) [One Wild Moment], was mostly set. But this time the remake, Blame It on Rio (1984), did not have the 'boudoir farce' story elements removed from its source foreign film, as had been the case with Kiss Me Goodbye (1982). See more »

Goofs

In the dinner scene with Kay, Charlotte, Rupert and Rev. Hollis, Charlotte begins the dinner conversation by saying that Jolly turned her into a vegetarian. She quoted Jolly as saying that he would "never eat anything that had a face." Later, when Kay, Rupert and Jolly go to a diner for lunch, Jolly orders a cheeseburger. See more »

Quotes

Emily: I think it's great that she's decided to face this place, start doing things again.
Charlotte Banning: So do I. But why couldn't she start with something simple. Like needlepoint, or analysis.

Moving on is hard to do!
6 November 2009 | by (WILMINGTON, NC) – See all my reviews

This comedy gives the meaning to move on with your life. Oscar winner Sally Field plays a widow who moves back into the house that she and her late husband(James Caan) lived in. She has a fiancé that Jolly doesn't like, and she is the only one that sees him. Everywhere she goes, Jolly follows. Jeff Bridges plays the fiancé who thinks Kay is a total nut case. He himself isn't quite all there. He sees quite a few things that will make Kay question his sanity. There were quite a few scenes that are total classic. Like where the electricity when haywire and the guy fixing it get locked in. Or when the dog started to act funny, and the fiancé just wanted to go all the way nuts. Then there's the part where the priest left his empty booze bottle and the fiancé slips on it. The cast of the movie are great, including celebrity chef Alan Haufrect. Not many people remember this movie, but I do remember the preview and premiere. You would have a ghost of a chance to miss this classic! 3 out of 5 stars!
