Since Home Alone (1990) and this movie, both of which were directed by Chris Columbus, were made only a few months apart from one another, Columbus decided that the main star of Home Alone (1990) would do a cameo in this movie, while one star, who had a cameo in Home Alone (1990), would be the main star of this movie. Hence, John Candy, who had a cameo in Home Alone (1990), is the main star of this movie, while Macaulay Culkin, the main star of Home Alone (1990) has a cameo in this movie as Candy's nephew. In Home Alone (1990), Culkin and Candy share no screentime together. In this film, they have one scene together. See more »

Ma, this is Theresa. Theresa, this is my mother.
[smiles, shaking her hand]
Pleased to meet you, Mrs. Muldoon.
Rose. I'm Rose.
Mm-hmm. Oh, that's a lovely dress you're wearing.
Oh, thank you.
Even though it is a little big on top.
Well, it is. You said so yourself.
No, that's a-a problem I have. I'm really not that endowed on top.

"Only The Lonely" was a great romantic comedy. I absolutely love it and John Candy never disappointed. I loved the storyline and all the actors did great jobs. Ally Sheedy was sweet and Maureen O'Hara was great although her character made me mad sometimes. I felt sorry for Danny (Candy) at times because he loved Theresa (Sheedy) so much but yet his mother didn't want him to be with her because of her religion. And his brother didn't like her because she was too plain. I was a little upset when he didn't show up for the wedding and he and Theresa went their separate ways for a while. But the ending was great and I was happy for them. Jim Belushi and Anthony Quinn were great and I really love this movie. But thanks for reading my review. Rest in peace John Candy. We miss you!!! :(
