The majority of the filming took place around Midtown Manhattan for the hotel scenes, Barney's Department Store where Gabrielle Anwar's character works, the Central Park scenes, FAO Schwartz, the jazz club and where Doug chats up with Freddy the horse carrarige rider. While other scenes such as Christian's Mansion in the Hamptons, Doug and Andy's apartments in the city and Doug's dream hotel site in Roosevelt Island were shot not too far away. See more »
During the opening shots of Doug riding around NYC in a limo, he purchases a large stuffed giraffe. The only way it will fit in the limo is standing up through the moon roof. When the limo is shown from above while in the traffic jam before heading back to the hotel, there is no moon roof. See more »
This is one of the few additions in the vast boring arena of calm romantic comedies that's worth a watch in a relaxing mind. I really like Michael J. Fox as an actor and I think he's done a good job here. It's a pity a versatile actor such as him has decided not to make any movies further. Gabrielle Anwar ("Body Snatchers") also looks and acts quite nicely.
The story, however, has no surprise elements, it's told for like thousand times. But still, due to smart screenplay and decent acting by the two lead actors, the film never gets tiresome to watch. And the funny parts, if not hilarious, not irritating either and fit nicely with the film's quiet mood.
