The picture's director Brian Gilbert
said of this movie: "The comedy of the film comes from the comedy of inappropriateness. It's the humor of things being in their wrong places, of justifiable and decent attitudes in the wrong context, the whole sense of perspectives turned upside down. Judge [Reinhold] and Fred [Savage] have had to think things through with quite a degree of logic and also intuition. It's been very demanding to make it real and to make it organic". See more
