Did You Know?

Trivia

Kevin Kline requested that his wife, Phoebe Cates, take a small role in the film. She appeared in the bar/disco scene as the girl Joey picks up at the bar. She did this as a cameo appearance and as a favor to her husband. She was also filming Drop Dead Fred (1991) at the time of her cameo in this film which is why her hair looks exactly the same in both films. See more »

Goofs

In the opening title sequence, a close up of Kline preparing pizza shows a wedding ring on his left hand. But when he is seen, in a tight shot of his hands, slicing mushrooms like a pro (i.e. his mushroom slicing double), there is no ring. See more »

This movie was anything but a crime
21 May 2005 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Kevin Kline is my favorite actor, and "I Love You to Death" strengthens that. He plays Joey Boca, a philandering pizza maker. When his wife Rosalie (Tracey Ullman) finds out about it, she sets out trying to kill him. Unfortunately, Joey somehow has the best luck in the world. So, Rosalie and her mother (Joan Plowright) decide to hire two outside men (William Hurt and Keanu Reeves) to do the dirty work. It turns out that these two men are a pair of uber-incompetent stoners. The whole fiasco ends in a really crazy situation.

Kevin Kline's Italian accent isn't totally believable, but his manic performance makes up for that. William Hurt and Keanu Reeves do a great job as the stoners. Excellent.
