Trivia:
First film that director Lawrence Kasdan directed that he didn't write. Kasdan said: "The screenplay made me laugh out loud when I read it but l was also taken with the emotional level of the piece. There is something very touching, almost sweet about it, even though it's a very dark story, and people do terrible things in it. You understand them all, and they're not evil people".See more »
Goofs:
Continuity: Joey and Rosalie are in the car, with mama Nadja outside trying to persuade Rosalie to get out of the car because it is about to blow up. As Rosalie understands and tries to shield her head there is a piece of cake/bread in her right hand. However, as the shot returns to her, it is in her mouth.See more »
Quotes:
Nadja:Last week on TV, I heard about a woman who stabbed her husband twenty-seven times. And you know why? Because he refused to put the top back on the mustard jar. Twenty-seven times! Can you imagine?See more »

The truth is stranger than fiction!!!!!, 23 January 2001
Author: William Cox (deepthinker) from Arlington, TX.

I love it when you sit down to watch a little cable/satellite television and there's nothing on, but then you stumble on a movie as good as this one. This is one of those movies that slipped through the cracks. The fact that it's based on a true story is one of the things that makes this movie so funny. I think Keanu Reeves and William Hurt offer some of the greatest performances I have ever seen. The cast is top notch. Rent this one when you have a free hour and a half. It'll be well worth the $3 or $4.
