Trivia

The film's DVD release was promoted with a tongue-in-cheek commercial in which Kevin Smith begs people to buy his DVD so that he has enough money to keep his sexy wife happy. See more »

Goofs

Ollie cautions Gertie to flush the toilet, but never mentions that she should wash her hands after using it. For a protective father like he is, this makes little sense. See more »

Kevin Smith's been abducted!

I can't believe this movie belongs to the same director which made Clerks or Chasing Amy! What ever happened to Kevin Smith, man? He used to be sarcastic, ironic, acid... he used to be a nice comedy-maker, he used to make jokes out of girls which sucked 37 penises... But now, what do we have now? We have a romantic-comedy, with a widow man (Ben Affleck ... arrghhhh!!!) who has to raise her little girl alone. Mr Smith has made a comedy for all the family (for that kind of people he used to ridicule in his early works). Maybe he's grown up and became an adult man! Well, we'll always have Woody Allen. Bye bye Kevin! Thanks for Clerks.

*My Rate 4/10
