When Connie sits down to a meal of soup eaten according to proper etiquette, the bowls of soup are tilted AWAY from the diners. Then the older Mrs. Winterbourne (Shirely MacLaine) is offered her medication by the chauffeur who takes away her wine glass. She says, ungrammatically, "Who is working for who?" It should be "whom".

This was a great film. Just because Ricki Lake stars in this movie doesn't automatically make it bad. It's a sweet story about a girl who had a rough life and accidentally finds herself with a ton of possibilities just unfortunately, as someone else. Ricki Lakes character has a lot of integrity and is truly a good mom along with all the chaos. Brendan Fraser is very lovable and Shirley Mclain was fabulous as only she could be. This is a definite rental if you haven't seen it and are looking for a sweet romantic comedy. You won't be disappointed.
