Goofs

As a urologist, Billie could have been able to continue to work throughout her pregnancy. Therefore. they could have saved up enough money to provide for future needs, like daycare or a nanny when she and Greg were at work. Only if her pregnancy was at risk, would she be forced to stop working the entire term of pregnancy. See more »

William Arvay is the real star.
28 September 2004 | by kaidackelSee all my reviews

Bill Arvay's portrayal of the doctor is brilliantly and sensitively done. It is one of the most dramatic moments in a film that is primarily a comedy.

His character tells Burt Reynold's character that his wife did not survive the surgery. Part of the scene is nonverbal and relies solely on body language, and I found it amazing how much emotion Mr. Arvay was able to convey without any words. These are brief scenes, but they make you want to see more of that character. In my opinion, he dominates those scenes with Burt Reynolds. Incidentally, he also had a terrific role in the television miniseries North and South. Let's hope we'll be seeing him in bigger roles in the future.

I must also add (July 2006) that Mr. Arvay is a very handsome and captivating gentleman, and is a real pleasure to watch, in person as well as on the silver screen.
