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