Trivia

When the film was originally released on October 14, 1994, in North America, it was banned in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan (the only place it was banned). When asked in an interview about it, Dan Aykroyd quipped; "I guess they just don't have sex in Saskatchewan." It was finally released a mere week after its original release date (October 21, 1994) to Saskatchewan audiences. See more »

Goofs

After Detective Shelia has asked for Elliot and he comes to her room, Elliot is telling her he wants to leave to go to the race. The leaves hanging behind Shelia appear and disappear with each camera change. As she sits down, you can see it's a vine hanging down to the wardrobe handle but the length changes as the scene plays out. See more »

Quotes

Sheila Kingston: Listen, I've had my share of bad times with men, okay? Some are a**holes, Elliot is not. If we don't cultivate the good ones, there aren't going to be any.

An OK movie nowhere near as good (or bad) as it's defenders or detractors think
6 January 2001 | by llltdesqSee all my reviews

This is a movie that is okay and has a decent performance by Delaney and Ackroyd and the best role O'Donnell has had yet. There are those who hate this film and some who love it. Since it contains neither Pauly Shore nor Adam Sandler and not a trace of Bo Derek or Pia Zadora, it can't be as bad as so many think. It may not be Olivier doing Hamlet, but it beats Shatner playing Othello. Recommended for Dana Delaney and Rosie fans with the obligatory Hector Elizando appearance though he's done much better elsewhere.
