Trivia

According to Bob Woodward's John Belushi biography "Wired", Talia Shire thoroughly enjoyed working with Belushi in this film. Knowing his drug problem, she told Belushi after the film wrapped he was a great actor when not using drugs and that she wanted to work with him again in the future. Unfortunately, with Belushi's untimely death three years later, she didn't get the opportunity. See more »

I'd like to take Richard Jordan home to mother
30 November 2008 | by trob226See all my reviews

Talia Shire's marriage goes belly up and she decides to find old boyfriends to see who she was then, so she can find out who she is now. First up is old college beau Richard Jordan who asked her to marry him 3 times, but she turned him down. Don't know why, he sure is adorable, but she runs out on him again and moves on to high school beau John Belushi who shamed her, then quickly on to find a grammar school beau but that doesn't work out either. Meanwhile, Richard Jordan is looking everywhere for her because he and his daughter (Jordan's real life daughter) want her back. Heaven knows why, but he just doesn't give up easily. Talia Shire's character is not very sympathetic for the lead heroine, but Jordan's is and makes up for it. The scenes between them are sweet.
