Crazy Credits

Early in the opening credits we see the words "a hamon cheimafflo film". The letters of the two middle words then rearrange themselves, one "o" slipping off the side of the screen, to form the name of director Michael Hoffman. See more »

It's very funny, has a great cast, and it is the best film of 1991.
31 October 2003 | by (Oak Lawn, Illinois) – See all my reviews

It's very funny. It has a great cast who each give great performances. Especially Sally Field and Kevin Kline. It's a well written screenplay by Andrew Bergman (Honeymoon In Vegas). I don't like soap operas, even though I never watch them. But I do love this film because it's so crazy and off the wall, that it beats the hell out of any stupid soap that they have on daytime television. In my opinion, it's the best film of 1991.
