It's reported that Steven Spielberg was a fan of the script and considered directing the project before John Madden was hired. It was ultimately decided that Spielberg's availability was too far out to serve the expectations of the production. See more »
Of the prospect of Jane Molloy leaving his firm for Sloane, Pat Connors tells her: "I could care less." This is a common mistake. If he means to convey that it does not affect him in the slightest, he should say that he couldn't care less. Saying that he could, in fact, care less, denotes a degree of caring that is not equal to zero. See more »
I picked this movie without prejudice, as I hadn't heard a word about it. And I loved it!!!
The tempo is sustained, the performances outstanding. An interesting story with a twist, well written, and the perfect cast.
One element that also enhances the movie: its diversity. Multi-faceted characters which gives spice to the story's meat.
The only downside: the way love is given a bad name. How do you want the youth to connect if you keep telling them that love ain't the sh*t?? It is a recurrent theme in 21st century cinema that i condemn, because it perpetuates mechanic sex--humans deprived from feelings. I am for a little more optimism in that domain and the human species.
