Trivia

'Neil Simon' said of his experience working on 'The Marrying Man': "With a play, I have only two people to please - myself and the director. With this movie, it was 19 executives, a director who'd never done anything but animation before, and two stars who would tell you what lines they'd say and what lines they wouldn't say." See more »

Goofs

The film opens in San Francisco, 1956 and the on the wall of the nightclub (Dexter's) is an advertisement for KJAZ FM. That radio station did not sign on in San Francisco until August, 1959. See more »

Delightful poem to passion
13 February 2000 | by (Sao Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

I didn't know the writing credits were on Neil Simon. And me and my wife saw the movie enjoying every line of the text. We're great admirers of Mr.Simon, who created the leading style in good American comedies humour. The Marrying Man is an invitation to find the right person in our lives. That person that awakes our most passionate side, the one which worth to live. Okay, I'm becoming a little dramatic, but my wife and I, we know (thanks God...and us) what true love can do with your life, for better! It's a great movie, plenty of meanings. Watch it twice!
