John Corbett made sure Heineken had paid for product placement before he would drink one on camera. The producers insisted they had been paid and then Corbett insisted he should get paid also. The producers agreed and Corbett drank joyfully from the apple juice-filled familiar green bottle. See more »
(At 19.00) In one of Harmony's 1950s flashbacks her mother has an Elvis song for every car problem. "Always On My Mind" is said to represent 'a flat tire'. The song was actually written in the 1970s and recorded by Elvis in 1972. See more »
A lightweight comedy - amusing rather than laugh-out-loud - this film is carried by the attractiveness of its leads (Kim Basinger at 50 is stunning, and more than a match for John Corbett, eight years her junior).
There are a number of good supporting actors - Philip Charles MacKenzie's gay receptionist is a joy - and cameos, notably Tom Hanks. Mike Starr and Phill Lewis's two cops routine is a little too hackneyed for my taste, although their two Elvis impressionists' number is worthwhile.
Altogether a very silly movie, but not unenjoyable.
