A clairvoyant thinks she's met her husband to be because she's seen him in her dreams. They marry quickly, and return to the husband's ("the butcher"), home in the city. She has a big impact on everyone she meets by anticipating their questions and actions and advising them on their love life. Her interference then brings her into contact with the real man of her dreams.Written by
The picture was filmed during October, November and December 1990. See more »
The opening and closing scenes supposedly show Marina in her Ocracoke (NC) home, but the tall, diamond-patterned lighthouse actually stands at Cape Lookout, about 45 miles down the coast from Ocracoke. Ocracoke has its own, much-photographed lighthouse, a shorter, white tower. See more »
Dr. Alex Tremor:
[talking to self in mirror, shaving]
You ended up skating in the park witha patient. It's class countertransferance. You allowed her to manipulate you into a vulnerable - nevermind unprofessional - situation where she controlled you. This is freshman psychology, Alex.
Dr. Alex Tremor:
Oh, oh, good! Oh, good! Good! Dr. Tremor, don't blow a graet career on a cute piece of ass. You keep your dick in your pants, your id in check, and you remember we have a mission in this world.

I just love, love, love this film. The cast is perfect, right down to all the bit-parts. At first I was bothered by DM's accent (& her blonde hair is a shame) but the sweet script transcends all that. All the characters are pitch perfect, the lines so funny & the message inspiring! The locations are also great, I don't know where this is in NYC, but I would love to live there! I think Jeff Daniels is simply brilliant in this film, and Mary Steenbergen too. The scene where DM tells her she's a singer is lovely & the sparky scenes between JD & DM are so sweet and funny too!
