great cast, bad film
22 September 2015 | by smellyexitSee all my reviews

I can't believe another user rated this film highly simply because of the closing song? After admitting that everything about the film was bad. Looks like Susan Seidelman made it with costumes she had left over from "Desperately Seeking Susan". The script by cheezmaestra Nora Ephron (You've Got Mail, Sleepless in Seattle) is so bad I can't begin to tell you. I only sat through this because I will watch ANY film starring Peter Falk, but the picture still stinks like if someone had saved that wrapped up package of fish from THE GODFATHER. Good luck making it through this film until the end without turning it off. If you find this on an old VHS tape for fifty cents, don't waste your money.
