The ages of the characters of Charles Cummings (Jon Cryer) and Laura Victor (Demi Moore) were 16 and 22 respectively with an age difference between the pair in the film having Moore about six years older than Cryer. In real life, Cryer was born in early 1965 and Moore in late 1962, making Moore only about two-and-a-half years older than Cryer, who ironically later went onto to star in the popular sitcom television series Two and a Half Men (2003).

"No Small Affair" was a movie made at the height of the Brat Pack popularity. John Cryer and Demi Moore, two of the most prominent members of the group are showcased in this whimsical comedy about obsession. Jerry Schatzberg directed the film, which has a San Francisco setting.
The movie is in a way, the coming of age of Charles Cummings, a young amateur photographer who one day discovers a beautiful young woman while taking pictures at one of the piers. He will do anything in order to meet Laura, who at the beginning doesn't feel anything for him, but who is intrigued by his obsession, especially when he spends all his savings to have her face, and telephone number, plastered all over the tops of taxis. He was only trying to get Laura exposed to possible offers for a recording career, but the plan backfires and all she gets are sexual propositions.
John Cryer as Charles Cummings is charming. Demi Moore does good work as Laura. George Wendt, Peter Frechette, Ann Wedgeworth, Jeffrey Tambor, Jeniffer Tilly and Tim Robbings are seen in supporting roles.
The film is an entertaining way to spend a couple of hours.
