The original title of the movie was supposed to be "Cherry Pink", based on the song of the same name. However, when the producers wanted to buy the right to incorporate the song into the movie, they found that the price was too high. Thus the name and the song were dropped. See more »

Has anyone ever told you about the birds and the bees?

I truly wish I could have seen this movie a couple of years ago, I probably would have enjoyed it even more then. But still, at the age of 20 I find it to be very amusing and entertaining. It's one of those growing up movies you liked when you were 10, but is still great when you watch it as an adult. The story is funny and the characters evenly so, and the good acting is what binds this movie together. Jason Alexander shows us he is not only one of the funniest actors around, he can also direct, and as far as this movie is concerned he does it surprisingly well.
A bit of nostalgia I suppose. 7/10
