Goofs

When Porter and Griffin are having lunch in the hotel the girl (who becomes Porter's first affair) is playing a double bass in the lobby. The soundtrack music, apart from being very obviously not synchronised with what she is playing, is a viola or possibly violin - definitely not a bass. See more »

Awful
21 June 2004 | by (New Hartford, NY) – See all my reviews

Warren Beatty is one of those Hollywood icons that has had an inconsistant career. For every Bonnie and Clyde he has made, he has also made Ishtar (which I think is better than this movie). This movie is by far his worst. It feels like a desperate attempt by Beatty to make him feel young by having him sleep around with so many women. The whole cast feels lost in this movie. The characters are all unlikable, especially Beatty's. Why would I sit through a "comedy" where we don't want to be around these people? The usually charming Goldie Hawn and Diane Keaton are rather shrill in this movie. I say read articles about this movie's troubled production. I think that story would be up there with the story of "Heaven's Gate," "Ishtar," "Bonfire of the Vanities," and "Waterworld" as the behind the scenes story is more interesting than the movie itself.
