Trivia

Originally set up by Joe Roth (then head of 20th Century Fox) as a star vehicle for Madonna, who pulled out when scheduling conflicts arose with her role in Abel Ferrera's Dangerous Game (1993). Joan Allen, Kim Basinger, Halle Berry, Sherilyn Fenn, Bridget Fonda, Jodie Foster, Helen Hunt, Demi Moore, Kathy Najimy, Tatum O'Neal, Daryl Hannah, Meryl Streep, Marisa Tomei and Sela Ward were then considered before the part went to Geena Davis. It was then that a leaked fax from Madonna to Roth emerged in which she sarcastically blasted his decision to dump her for a non-Italian actress. It transpired that Roth had privately expressed doubts about Madonna's ability to carry a movie, comments which had made it back to the star in question, hence her sudden departure from the project. Original director Jonathan Kaplan soon followed, to be replaced by Martha Coolidge, with whom Davis had worked two years previously on Rambling Rose (1991). See more »

Unbelievably muddled, but Geena is always worth a look...
30 March 2008 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Comedy-drama from talented if erratic director Martha Coolidge concerns a modern Italian-American working woman in Brooklyn, pregnant and unmarried, finding herself curious about the mother who abandoned her and her father years before. Begins brightly, with Geena Davis seemingly well-cast in the lead, but it quickly becomes mired in colorless sub-plots (including the woman's resentful best friend and her abusive husband, a schizophrenic mother, a needy stepmother, a malformed infant, and a married boyfriend!). By the midway point, Davis begins to struggle in her role, pushing her pivotal moments too hard and losing her innate likability. Worse, this scenario is far too neat and tidy--and when the actors aren't being overly 'cute', they're screaming senselessly at each other. Sadly, "Angie" bombs out. *1/2 from ****
