When Larry goes to the bar in his new office, he picks up a bottle of Johnnie Walker Black Scotch and calls it "the good stuff". Johnnie Walker Black is actually only a 12-year old Scotch and is one of the lower quality Scotches in the Johnnie Walker family. It would have been more appropriate to have him pick up a bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue which is a 60-year old Scotch. See more »
Larry Joseph Burrows:
Maybe it was because it was my birthday. Maybe it was seeing Cindy Jo. I don't know. But all morning I'd been thinking about what it would have been like if my life had turned out differently.

Belushi at his most ingratiating and Courtney Cox before Friends has a small role. I often think Belushi is under-used in Hollywood and this film role is one of his best. For those of you who watch his TV show, this is a very different and likable character. The movie itself is not earth shattering, nor is the message new but rather it is sweet and endearing. The supporting cast of familiar faces and unfamiliar names is a perfect balance although Lovitz's whining can get tiresome, and Michael Caine's charming spiritual guide has a slightly sinister if not well-meaning edge. Hamilton, as Belushi's wife is unfortunately two-dimensional and one wonders why he married her. In addition, Renee Russo is wasted and not terribly convincing at the "prom queen" who got away. Nevertheless, a nice way to spend two hours.
