One night, after filming wrapped, a fire destroyed destroyed several sets, many of the actors' trailers (among them Tim Curry's), all of the costumes, and 21 valuable vintage cars. Production was halted for two weeks while they were remaking all of the costumes. A Universal security guard hired to guard the cars later admitted to setting the fire. See more »

Now this guy's willing to marry you - so be nice.
But I want Oscar.
I want him more than you do. But he's on the lam and Anthony's taking the rap for him.
Thank you very much. Whatever happened to love? Whatever happened to romance?
Whatever happened to waiting till the wedding night?

Oh I know, Sylvester Stallone in an urbane period farce? Impossible, you say? No sir! He's actually very funny - as is the script (adapted from the play) and all the supporting cast! I totally love this movie and I show it to everyone I meet, despite their initial reactions - and they all enjoy it! Tim Curry is priceless as always and it's also Marisa Tomei's first movie. Vincent Spano, Peter Reigert, Yvonne de Carlo, Don Ameche, Kirk Douglas, Chazz Palminteri - more! It's so awesome!
