Goofs

When Dirk and Grace go to the funeral home to "dress up" Victor Fox's corpse for the open-casket funeral, the funeral home manager is hesitant to allow them to enter until Dirk introduces Grace as, "This is my lawyer..." In England, Dirk would probably not have used the word "lawyer". It is more likely that he would have said, "This is my solicitor..." (although, in mitigation, the word "lawyer" is widely used, and even solicitors and barristers often describe themselves as lawyers). See more »

So Weird but so very great!!!
1 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

My husband and I both loved this film. At first my husband was skeptical and asked how many points he got for sitting through this one. But after a few key scenes he was totally sucked in and by the end he was convinced it was one of the best movies going. Kathleen Bates has never been so wonderfully loveable and the rest of the cast is just simply fantastic. Thank you for this beautiful film.
