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 »

Goofs

The movie takes place in Brooklyn, but the phone number of Vinnie's business has a non-Brooklyn area code (910). See more »

Quotes

Angie: Are you lonely or horny?
Noel: I'm Irish. Which is the equivalent of saying that I'm lonely and horny.

Gandolfini--Rispoli--Aida Turturro--Sound familiar, kiddies?
6 March 2001 | by See all my reviews

So THIS is where they concocted the cast for the "Sopranos". Go figure. Three of the character actor cast members go on to the best show on television. And "Geena Davis", a damned Oscar winner, gets saddled with the "Geena Davis Show". If Geena Davis were Italian..I guess she'd have landed the Edie Falco role. I think there ought to be a Congressional inquiry into the matter. Something tells me that during the shoot for "Angie", David Chase was standing on a grassy knoll...hey...call me a conspiracy theorist...but I'll be willing to bet I'm right. Back and to the left..back and to the left.....
