Trivia

In December 1988, shortly after the film had wrapped (which would prove well over a year in advance of its eventual release), Liz Smith's syndicated column named Louise Lasser as the seventh and final featured cast member, following Olympia Dukakis. Somewhere in the interim, however, for whatever reason, and with nary a mention in the press, Lasser's scenes found their way onto the cutting room floor, although it would seem that continuity concerns may have rescued her from utter oblivion - that judging from an alleged Lasser sighting mentioned online in 2005 ("Blink twice and you will miss the estimable Louise Lasser lurking in the background of an early shot").

Reva: It's the mafia! The mafia is after us!
Maryann: Oh, the mafia wouldn't try to kill us and make it look like an accident! They'd just kill us! They're the mafia.
Reva: Oh, yes. But what if it connects them to something bigger, like drugs, or murder!?!
Maryann: Do you know much about the mafia?

Clever, fast paced movie
21 April 2003 | by (West Palm Beach, Florida) – See all my reviews

This movie is highly underrated. The story line is good and keeps the viewer entertained while moving at a good pace. All of the actors do a fine job with their characters. If you're ever in the mood for a little laughter and need to get away from your troubles, watch this movie as I am sure you will enjoy the two hours of entertainment.
