Director Ulu Grosbard credited Robert De Niro and Meryl Streep "helping shape" and develop the movie's screenplay. For two months, Streep and De Niro met once a week to improvise scenes with Ulu Grosbard and Michael Cristofer so as to fix the film's script, which needed more work as at the time, as the film project was at risk of being put into turnaround.

During several exterior Metro North run-by's, the film sequences are shown inverted. Trains coming towards the camera should run on the viewers left (as
trains and cars both drive on the right in the US) and the motorman's front window should be on the viewers left, as seen in the sequences shot in Grand Central Terminal. See more »
[talking to Isabelle about Frank]
No, I think about him every day. Last thought before I fall asleep and first thought when I wake up. I talk to myself all day about him, even when I'm talking to somebody else, even when I'm talking to you now I'm talking to myself about him. Brian thinks I'm ill, he thinks that it has to do with my father, he thinks the stress and, you know, all that... Thinks I'm having a breakdown, but I'm not, there's nothing wrong with me. Except that I love him.

a simple movie made special by two fantastic actors
The script and plot to this movie is simple, but oh so recognizable. Robert DeNiro and Meryl Streep: These two amazing actors - whose appearance on screen together is absolutely magical - make of this movie a very sweet and subdued production. The plot is simple: two people who don't intend to, get themselves in a situation, both not knowing what to do with: they're shy, not at ease and in love. See it. It will get romance out of your little toe. 8 out of 10
