At about three minutes 30 seconds, the lady picked up the remote control from the top of the TV and turned the TV on. Then she switched it to a news channel, but when the TV screen appeared on the screen to show the news, we can see a remote control is still on top of the TV. See more »
Read a book, watch TV...instead of watching this movie
Watch paint dry or grass grow - this movie's awful.
The opening scene sets the viewers' expectations that this might be a comedy. Leon Redbone's singing isn't for me but the selection of songs is at best a mystery - they don't fit in with the movie at all.
Debra Winger's character is just that. And Nick Nolte plays a supposedly reputable private investigator who doesn't investigate anything. He says he's in love with the wacky Winger character just after meeting her and that's just the beginning of what is one of the worst flicks I ever sat through.
Save yourself and your friends. Go contemplate your navel instead.
