During filming, Mackenzie Astin got in a car accident where he lost the top edge of his right ear. He had to come in an hour early for the rest of the shoot so make-up could add a prosthetic to make it match the earlier footage. See more »

I truly enjoyed this movie. I thought it was far better than that overrated, boring mess called "Terms of Endearment". It was funny and tragic at the same time. I couldn't have cared less about the people in the first movie but cared about all these characters. I loved the way Aurora mended her relationships with her grandchildren. I disagree with the person who said Miranda Richardson was miscast. I thought she did an excellent job. Her southern accent was a little exaggerated, but I'm from the south and let me tell you, there has never been an authentic southern accent in any film that I can think of. I despised Shirley MacLaine's character in the original but thought she was much more likeable in this one. The relationship between her and Bill Paxton's character was hilarious. There were some parts that were a little too silly (the fight between Patsy and Aurora on the plane, for one) but all in all it was an enjoyable way to pass 2 hours.
