The most expensive shot in the movie was when Jennifer Love Hewitt leaned against the car to talk to Ray Liotta near the end of the movie. Because it was cold on set, she had a white sweatshirt around her waist that was in the shot, and it had to be digitally taken out. See more »
When Max pretends to be 'Olga', judging by her accent and name, she is supposed to be Russian; at one point she addresses Tensey as 'Babooshka' in an affectionate tone. When in fact 'Babooshka' is Russian for Grandmother. However, a plausible excuse for this would be that Max was unaware of its actual meaning. See more »

Dean... you've got so many tells. You are not the killing type.
Don't screw with me. I'm on a fine edge, here. Don't!

The film was billed as a romantic comedy, but I didn't see it that way. It's certainly a comedy (with a little romance) but this is far closer to Dirty Rotten Scoundrels than Pretty Woman.
Anyway, when i watched it i found the film to be one of the best comedies i've seen for years. Its about a sexy mother and daughter pairing of Sigourney Weaver and Jennifer Love-Hewitt who basically marry men for their money; every character seems to be double crossing every other character, and it makes for terrific viewing.
Each member of the cast puts in a top performance, the characters are all intelligently written and the story is very strong and interesting.
I have to recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys a good laugh, this is definitely not just a another chick flick, it is a brilliantly funny movie. 8/10
