Quotes

Libby: [telling Eliza about her ex-boyfriend] The fact that this is the first time I'm seeing him in 1 year, 2 months and 19 days is probably why I'm drinking more gin-and-tonics than a boatful of WASPs at the Hyannisport Regatta!

One of the best films of the year
1 December 1998 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Underrated and underseen. Daytrippers is like a younger Woody Allen, mixing comedy with angst. Fresh and funny, real and absurd, empathetic. Terrific first movie as writer/ director.
