The tequila scene where Jack and Tess first meet was filmed at the restaurant bar of Caroline's Comedy Club when it was located at the South Street Seaport in New York City. As Jack descends the stairs to put Tess in a cab, you can see a billboard advertising the club. See more »
In the closing scene, as Tess is on the phone in her office in the morning, the shadows are falling eastward on the southern facade of the One Chase Manhattan Plaza, which means that it is sunset time. See more »

Come run with me now the sky is the colour of blue you've never even seen in the eyes of your mother
That's a a line from the title song, New Jerusalem. One of the best bits of the movie. This is just such a happy, inspiring movie that you have to like it. Harrison Ford is brilliant (when is he not?) and you really feel sorry for Melanie Griffith. The characters are easy to understand. Not the most intellectual film ever but so what. It's fun and a great script.
