According to the book "Robert Downey Jr - The fall and rise of the comeback kid", Mike Figgis and Robert Downey Jr. met at Kate Mantilini's, a restaurant on Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly Hills to discuss this movie. Downey arrived two hours late, barefoot, high and carrying a purse with a gun sticking out of it. Figgis was shocked at first but started a conversation anyway. Downey, who had lost a lot of weight because of his addiction, still expected to be offered the lead role of Max. Figgis offered him the part of Charlie, a man dying of AIDS instead. This in turn gave Downey a shock, but after taking a good look in the mirror (and doing a line of coke) he decided to accept the part. See more »

At first I had a knee jerk reaction to the fact that infidelity played a role in the rearrangement of people's lives. However, what got me off my high horse was Robert Downey Jr's character Charlie. Charlie was the equalizer in this film which brought everything and everyone together. The message became crystal clear as Charlie candle slowly burned out, but what better way could a man ask to leave this world. Charlie truly left us all with something to live on for, OUR HAPPINESS.... 9 out of 10
