As Elizabeth was the child of J.C.'s "mother's cousin's daughter's son" (Andrew), it is very unlikely that they would have the same last name, as mentioned when she is reading the will. See more »

Sex? I can't even say the word... not that I was ever really into it, but... when you don't have any and there are no prospects, well, it's very upsetting!

One of my favorite movies of all time. Cute, cozy movie. Even the husband enjoys watching it. Just the right mixture of cuteness & comedy. I personally think it was one of Diane Keaton's best roles. I wonder what happened to the twins who played Elizabeth though. I'm sure they're all grown up now. Interesting to see what they've turned out to be. However, there are no other credits listed for them. Although I've seen the movie plenty of times, I never knew there was a television show spun off of it. And Joy Behar played Helga??? I'll have to see if there are any copies of the show floating around out there. Great movie, definitely one to add to your collection.
