Philip runs a crisis hotline with Catherine and Mrs Munchnik. That's the easy part, now it gets tricky... Stanley loves evicting people and he evicts Philip. Philip loves helping people and he is loved by Catherine. Catherine is loved by Louie who loves writing songs. Chris loves dancing to songs and loves to wear large dresses. Gracie also loves to wear large dresses because she's pregnant. She loves the baby's father, Felix, who loves to paint. That just leaves Mrs. Munchnik who hasn't been loved by anybody in a very long time. Written by

When Dr. Kinsky (Rob Reiner) is complaining about Vanessa to Philip (Steve Martin), he mentions that she has twelve pillows, in all sorts of shapes, and at night, before they go to bed, they have to take all twelve pillows, and then in the morning they have to replace all the pillows, for no real purpose. This is the exact same routine that Ben Stiller and Jennifer Anniston go through in "Along Came Polly." ten years after this movie was released. See more »
Felix slips the suspender onto his left arm once, then again when the shot changes, when he puts the Santa suit back on in the bathroom. See more »
I can't believe how many people don't like this film! This is a must-see (many times!) each year before Christmas for my son and me. The beginning is a little slow but once the comedy really gets going it's hysterical! And in my opinion, the acting was priceless and each actor's comic timing brilliant. It would be very difficult for me to pick a favorite performance in this film, but if I had to, I would say Madeline Kahn as Mrs. Munchnick. Her facial expressions are adorable and I would say that her best scene was when she finally made it to the bathroom (won't give too much away!). Rita Wilson also gave a top-notch performance as the pathetically adorably Kathryn. Oh, and the soundtrack is great, too!
