Trivia One scene called for actor Al Pacino to be surprised after opening a door. Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (1991) was filming in a nearby studio, so director Garry Marshall arranged for William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy, in full costume, to be on the other side of the door that Pacino opened.

Goofs When Johnny and Cora have just finished having sex, there is a shot of Cora looking down on Johnny with her hair very disheveled, and her make up all undone, and she looks very hot and bothered. The scene cuts to Johnny on the bed for a few seconds, then back to Cora whose face and hair now suddenly looks completely redone, her make up is fine, her hair is beautifully in place, and she looks totally calm and cool.

Quotes Johnny: You don't have to be afraid anymore.
Frankie: I am. I'm afraid. I'm afraid to be alone, I'm afraid not to be alone. I'm afraid of what I am, what I'm not, what I might become, what I might never become. I don't want to stay at my job for the rest of my life but I'm afraid to leave. And I'm just tired, you know, I'm just so tired of being afraid.
