Trivia

Originally set up by Joe Roth (then head of 20th Century Fox) as a star vehicle for Madonna, who pulled out when scheduling conflicts arose with her role in Abel Ferrera's Dangerous Game (1993). Joan Allen, Kim Basinger, Halle Berry, Sherilyn Fenn, Bridget Fonda, Jodie Foster, Helen Hunt, Demi Moore, Kathy Najimy, Tatum O'Neal, Daryl Hannah, Meryl Streep, Marisa Tomei and Sela Ward were then considered before the part went to Geena Davis. It was then that a leaked fax from Madonna to Roth emerged in which she sarcastically blasted his decision to dump her for a non-Italian actress. It transpired that Roth had privately expressed doubts about Madonna's ability to carry a movie, comments which had made it back to the star in question, hence her sudden departure from the project. Original director Jonathan Kaplan soon followed, to be replaced by Martha Coolidge, with whom Davis had worked two years previously on Rambling Rose (1991). See more »

Angela Scacciapensieri
5 April 2002 | by Blooeyz2001See all my reviews

Originally intended for Madonna (who can't act & would have definitely STUNK!), this was an excellent role for Geena Davis. "Angie" is a film about an Italian/American woman from the Bensonhurst section of Brooklyn, N.Y. Her mom left her when she was a child & because of this she has a romanticized notion of her mother & a deep fear of abandonment. She wants more out of life than her working class plumber boyfriend (and father of her child) can offer her so she falls in love with a lawyer from Ireland while pregnant(someone as far removed from her Brooklyn world as possible!) After the baby is born, the lawyer dumps her & she also feels rejected by her son (you'll have to see the movie to find out why) so she heads off to Texas to finally face her mom for some type of closure. Yes, this character's angst & situations can be overwhelming , but real life can be like that too sometimes. The musical score, by Jerry Goldsmith, is excellent (particularly "Angie's Theme") & compliments the movie wonderfully. The movie also has a knack for capturing the New York Italian/American experience authentically. At times, "Angie" feels like a hybrid of other films ("Working Girl", "Beaches", "Saturday Night Fever", "Moonstruck" & "Pretty Woman") but it works. (This film is based on the novel "Angie, I Says" by Avra Wing. In the book the main character's name is Tina Scacciapensiari & her best friend's name is Angie. The first names of these characters were switched for the film).
