Did You Know?


Jack Nicholson mainly agreed to make this film in an attempt to revive the careers of his old friends Bob Rafelson and 'Carole Eastman (II)'. Nicholson had worked successfully with the two back in 1970 on Five Easy Pieces (1970). See more »


When Duke's owner takes him back, he decides to give Harry another German Shepherd Dog, but it's clearly the same dog, its fur has the same color pattern. Even though Duke gets into the SUV and the "other dog" gets out in the same shot, there must have been someone inside who slipped a different collar on it (notice how the owner pauses for a couple of seconds before he lets the other dog out) See more »

Not one of my favorites, but I liked it.
6 March 2000 | by (Vina del Mar, Chile) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie on a second-class channel this Sunday, and I have to say that I liked it. It's just a romantic comedy, and if you keep that in mind, you will also like it. Of course, maybe Jack Nicholson is overcasted, but it proves how capable is he of doing any kind of character, in any kind of movie. It doesn't worth buying, but I think it worth the rental fee.
