Storyline

Monty is a student, and when his computer crashes, he's left with only a single paper copy of his thesis. Frightened of losing it, he immediately rushes out to photocopy it, only to stumble and drop it down a grate. Searching the basement of the building, he discovers that it has been found by Simon, a squatter. Simon makes a deal with Monty: for every day's accomodation and food that Monty gives him, he will give a page of the thesis in return. Written by Murray Chapman <muzzle@cs.uq.oz.au>

Trivia

When the movie was filmed in the winter of 1993-1994, there was already at least a meter of snow on the ground in Harvard Square and in all of Boston. However, because the actual snow did not look "real" enough to be filmed, it was all cleared away and replaced with artificial snow. See more »

Goofs

In the early scene in the advisor's office, conspicuous large snowflakes are falling outside the window behind the adviser, but in the shot showing the other window, there is no snow. See more »

A heartwarming and heartfelt tale of love and life
19 May 1999 | by (High Prairie, Alberta, Canada) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie through once, then rewound it and watched it again. I loved it both times through. This movie shows that you've got to choose how to live your life rather than just let it happen. It's a very "carpe diem" experience ;) It's also a perfect mix of comedy and drama, Patrick Dempsey and Joe Pesci kept the laughs coming. Not for the cynical or the bitter, enter it with an open heart and you can't help but be affected.
