After the beginning credits, Harry says "So, darling, you are rich" and we can see his cigar is long. Seconds later, he says "I'll like to meet your mother" and now the cigar is shorter. It's impossible he has smoked so much in a 2 or 3 seconds. See more »

Good!
23 May 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is funny, cute, light-hearted, serious all rolled into one movie.

Diane gives her all in the movie, she unleashes all the insane things women go through in life. Her story is fascinating. Jack Nicholson is of course his usual "swaggering" self in this movie. He gives us his normal antics throughout the movie. His "heart-attacks" are priceless. You can't help but love him! Keanu, he is incredible in this movie. He is sincere, intelligent and magical. Amanda Peet, is over the top as in most of her roles. Overall this movie was excellent!
