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

Rose! Rose, I am trying again. Will you please accept these flowers?
I don't want them. And I don't date Greeks.
You know, you and I could make each other so happy. Greek men are great lovers.
And Greek men never bathe.
I bathe twice a day! Three times! When I do my sit-ups. Feel that stomach. Hard like an eighteen-year-old's. Come on, feel it!
I'm not feeling anything of yours.

A wonderful movie for anyone who has had a mother.
Many movie fans compared this film to the classic Ernest Borgnine flick, "Marty". While dealing with similar themes, (fat, lonely man finds love), the film spurs big laughs with Rose Muldoon (Maureen O'Hara) manipulating her son Danny (John Candy)with endless mind games and guilt trips in order to remain in complete control. Enter Teresa Luna (Ally Sheedy) a shy mortuary cosmetologist, who awkwardly steals Dannys' heart. Could it be that Rose has finally found competition for Dannys' affection? A side note, while promoting the release of the film, John Candy and Maureen O'Hara appeared on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. Maureen, representing the "old school" of Hollywood, proceeded to shower John Candy with so much praise that he became obviously embarrassed. She told Johnny and the audience that John Candy would be not only a great comic actor but the next great dramatic actor to grace the screen since Charles Laughton. Sadly, John Candy didn't live to see this come to pass. All in all, this is a wonderful romantic comedy for all audiences.
