Characters are shown supposedly leaving San Francisco for Tiburon, driving on the upper deck of the Bay Bridge - which only leads towards San Francisco. Additionally, the logical path to take to Tiburon would involve the Golden Gate, not the Bay Bridge. See more »
This year I rented the movie cuz I remember wanting to watch it ever since it came out but I forgot about it. Good thing I forgot to watch it, I would've wasted my money back then.
The plot is interesting; a woman wants to find her runaway son. She tells the 2 guys, whom she had a previous relationships with, that either is the father, though they're really not. Robin Williams and Billy Crystal are a great comic duet, really, but not in this movie cuz their character is so... blah. Billy's lawyer character is too boring and Robin's writer character is too stupid.
What really surprised me is the appearance of Cali-quintet band, Sugar Ray. They had little or no dialogue, though! In one scene where Dale and Lawrence pretend to be German producers from a record label, only Mark McGrath ("I think we've met before, dude.") and Murphy Karges ("I have heard about these guys.") spoke while Rodney Sheppard, Stan Frazier and Craig "DJ Homicide" Bullock just sat there. Good thing they still have their music careers.
