Tom Hanks was cast in the role of Steven Gold, the medical school student and aspiring comic. Hanks had proven himself to be a tremendously talented and versatile actor at a relatively young age. David Seltzer said: "I really wanted Tom from the outset and when we heard he was interested, we didn't even consider anyone else. Tom has the quick-wittedness and unpredictability that is believable in all facets of this role, and, like Sally (Field), he has a vulnerability that makes for a truly interesting human being".

The movie about passion, love, affair, recognition, self-improvement, and family.
Young Hanks duets with Sally Field in this gripping tale about stand up comedian. A fresh look towards these people who dedicate their life for their passion for laugh.
An interesting twist of plot, when we see John Goodman, started as a painful husband, stuck between his job, turns into a husband who demand more attention and command Sally Field to let go of her career and passion for comedy. And an interesting acts where he turns out to be a real husband. Not a working husband.
The struggle of being oneself. This is the red line of the movie. Some people fooled themselves and others runaway from their faith, while others fight for them and realized their true goals and needs.
A heart-warming, funny, tragic movie. We ended up looking at ourselves, trying to make up jokes and acts up all right while crying and denying ourselves in true life.
Sunday evening movie.
