Some movie posters for the film featured a preamble that read: "She never knew he had an affair. He never knew he had a son. It could have meant the end of their marriage. Instead, it was the beginning of a love story". The last words of this marketing blurb were Love Story (1970) which was also the name of the earlier box-office hit movie written by the same source novelist Erich Segal. Also mentioned as a tagline under the title on the same movie poster was: "Based on the novel by Erich Segal, author of 'Love Story'". See more »
In the car, Jessica referred to her father's friend, Bernie, as Bernie Edwards. In the credits at the end of the movie, he's listed as Bernie Ackerman. See more »
This Martin Sheen film went almost completely unnoticed on its release, probably because the film company knew it wouldn't be worth promoting it. The film is a bit pretentious; it's characters speak lines in a manner that no one would really say in our real world. The actors do the best they can with the script they were given (including Blythe Danner, Craig T. Nelson, and Sebastian Dungan as Martin Sheen's 10-year old French son). It's not their fault, but the fault of the screenwriter Erich Segal (who also wrote the novel). Towards the end the movie goes to extremes to jerk the tears out of the two or three people sitting in the theatre. Really, not very good.
