Did You Know?
The true events that inspired the fictional "I Love You to Death" first came to the attention of Producer Ron Moler
in 1984, when he heard the story of Tony Toto and Frances Toto, and the five unsuccessful attempts on Tony's life. Moler and co-Producer Patrick Wells
began developing the material for a theatrical film, and brought Screenwriter John Kostmayer
in to write the script. The characters of Joey Boca (Kevin Kline
) and Rosalie Boca (Tracey Ullman
) , Kostmayer said, are people driven by passion to behave irrationally, but who "have a sweetness in them so deep, that they're prepared' to forgive infidelity, attempted murder, lies, betrayal, every crime against marriage, and start all over again". See more
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
Joey, if you're such a good Catholic, why do you commit adultery?
I'm a man; I got a lot of hormones in my body.
