Trivia Melanie Griffith was battling an alcohol and cocaine addiction throughout filming. She would often go dancing until 4:30 a.m. and had to be at the set by 6. On the morning she was supposed to shoot the scene where her character reunites with Alec Baldwin at Joan Cusack's wedding, Griffith was so wasted that production had to be shut down until she could say her lines coherently and $75,000 was taken out of her paycheck to fund the reshoot. Three weeks later Griffith entered the Hazelden Foundation, a rehab center in Minnesota. See more »
