Crazy Credits

At one point Billy Crystal's father-in-law moves in with them and drives him crazy by singing the Toyota slogan, "You asked for it...you got it" but he does it just like the commercial. At the end of the credits the father-in-law is reading the paper at the table while Billy Crystal is having breakfast. The father in law starts the slogan but waits about half a minute before finally finishing the line. See more »

Certainly not just a one time watch...
7 November 2005 | by See all my reviews

There are those comedies that are a good watch once, and that's it. However, there are those few romantic comedies that capture your attention and the humor is able to stay with you for a long time. This is one of those films. Narrated by several of the characters in the film, it has a special quality one can never forget.

From beginning to end, the narrators tell the love story of how the two leads meet, fall in love, and have troubles. Around four or five years is covered in the whole two hour piece. It's comedically written, but then, Crystal is the genius behind that, and it was well executed acting and directing wise.

Anyone who enjoys beautiful cinematography and great lines in a film, you'll enjoy Billy Crystal's "Forget Paris".
