Whoopi Goldberg constantly ignored the script and improvised (supposedly at the behest of New World Pictures, which was financing the film). It got to the point where Rip Torn was begging and pleading with her to do at least one take of each of her scenes as written. See more »
The film has all the humor, wit and charm of Whoopi Goldberg's, multi-character, one-person shows with a more cohesive aspect defined by a single, central character. Notice the "hats-off" to Richard Pryor and a final plot twist that shocks and tugs heart strings simultaneously. This one might cruise right over your head. Watch it more than once.
