After this movie, Debra Winger took herself out of the limelight of top movie roles and stopped acting altogether for about six years. She later said she'd been thinking about quitting and had wanted to spend time with her dying mother. See more »
In the Pistons/Lakers game when Mickey has his meltdown, the court is clearly the Phoenix Suns' court. The floor is purple instead of the Pistons' blue, and you can see the word America of "America West Arena" when he throws out Isiah Thomas. See more »
I am very impressed, you've got little kids over here, 2-3 years old, and they're already speaking French.

At one point Mickey's father-in-law Arthur moves in with them and drives him crazy by singing the Toyota slogan, "You asked for it...you got it," doing it just like the commercial. At the end of the end credits, Arthur is reading the paper at the table while Mickey is having breakfast. Arthur starts the slogan but waits about half a minute before finally finishing the line.

I have genuinely loved this movie! I've seen it many times, I rewatch it every time I need something sweet to soothe my soul...realistic, romantic, funny! Plus...let's NOT forget Paris...seeing the beautiful city really adds up to the movie charm! If you ever come across this one and aren't sure if it's worth watching, I hope my review will help you to just leave everything aside and press 'play'! Beautiful romantic comedy!
