Trivia

According to an October 17, 2017 New Yorker interview with Molly Ringwald, Harvey Weinstein ordered additional scenes filmed, scenes not from Graham Greene's source material. The film was completely taken away from the director, recut, and retitled. The film flopped. Ringwald later sued - and won - for her promised percentage of the gross. See more »

Light as a feather
3 May 1999 | by See all my reviews

Robert Lindsay tapped lightly through this story of a man who finds love when he least expects to and then almost loses it when he fails to value love as he should. Molly Ringwald was charming as the young woman he loves. John Gielgud, as the cunning Grand Old Man, makes promises he too easily forgets and sets up the plot for the mayhem to follow. I thought this film had the feel of an Ealing Studios comedy from the 1950's. I only regret that there weren't more hazards to befall Robert Lindsay, who can meltdown on screen funnier than almost anyone else.
