Robert Downey, Jr., who played Charlie Chaplin, plays along side the daughter of Charlie Chaplin, Geraldine Chaplin, just as he did in Chaplin (1992). See more »
When Claudia's daughter drops her off at the airport, the distinctive red tiled pillars let the viewer know that the airport is not one located in/around Chicago, but rather is the Baltimore Washington International airport (BWI). See more »

This is a great little gem of a film. The whole time i was watching this film i couldn't help but notice the similarities to my family. The craziness, the fights i mean everything. I laughed so hard during this film but mostly when Robert Downey Jr. was on screen. It is not to say that Holly Hunter was bad, she was quite good as was everyone else but Downey had this presense on the screen and he just stole the movie. while it was apparent he was using heavily he was still at his best on screen. The DVD commentary by Jodie Foster really gives insight to the film and it really sounds like Downey was a pain to work with because of his improvising everything but you feel she has a genuine sisterly love for him. Bottom line is that it was a funny, insightful, and realistic film.
