Trivia

In the scene where Isabelle and Bubble are sitting on a park bench waiting to meet the wedding broker, we get a brief look at a bag beside Bubble on the ground to her right. The white bag has "Humphrey / Muskie" written on it. They were the Democratic ticket for 1968, twenty years before this movie was released. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Anton Maes: [People are arriving at an event at a book store. There are sounds of employees greeting them, checking them in, serving champagne. Izzy is collecting empty plastic cups and napkins. She sees a woman put a book from the shelf in her bag, and deftly removes and replaces it. Anton is watching her from across the nook and motions her over. Their eyes lock as she approaches] So, you won't be out of a job.
[He plunks down his cup on her tray]

The S E C O N D Best Date Movie of all time!
24 August 2001 | by See all my reviews

PERSONAL NOTE: I saw this in the movie theater at University Square Mall in Tampa Florida, around Christmas of 1988.

On to the review...

Being that the first best date movie is 'When Harry Met Sally', this flick is a STRONG second. It moves along at an unhurried pace, we see the conflict Amy Irving's character faces, Peter Riegert as always delivers, the supporting cast is great, and we enjoy a nice dose of 'The Jewish Grandma'.

The pace and "feel" of this movie is near perfect.

Also, it's interesting that BOTH "Crossing" and "Harry" use the tune "It Had To Be You" in them.

AT LAST!!! IT'S Available IN DVD!!!!
