Trivia

Like what happens in the movie, Billy Crystal and his wife Janice were hanging out in a restaurant with friends when they got the idea for the film. They were reliving funny moments and talking about the realities of marriage (after the honeymoon is over). In creating this film, Crystal was joined by writers Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel, and long-time collaborator Rob Reiner. See more »

Goofs

The last basketball game before the end, where Mickey is officiating whilst his friends wait for him at the restaurant, is made to seem to happen in LA. But in the shots of the game floor, the NY Knicks and Madison Square logo is clearly emblazoned on the hardwood. See more »

When Billy met Debra...
8 May 2007 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Sadly lackluster romantic comedy, co-written, directed and starring Billy Crystal, is told in deadly flashbacks. A group of friends recount a colleague's courtship (and eventual marriage) to an unfulfilled woman, resulting in comic disasters. French locations and a bright cast do help a little bit, but the screenplay isn't very funny, instead becoming weighed down with cheap, lousy sentiment that doesn't play (and has more than a whiff of "When Harry Met Sally..." besides!). Only a minimum of laughs surface, particularly when William Hickey is on-screen as Debra Winger's aged father. Otherwise, Crystal and Winger are not well-matched and their marital ups-and-downs have a depressive feel, with an uneasy give and take full of failed wisecracks and pregnant pauses. Forget it! *1/2 from ****
