Steve Guttenberg is oddly missing from the family photo used in posters and covers of DVDs. There is a glaring space where someone should be on the couch next to Anne Bancroft. See more »

This film, when stripped of all its humour, cover-ups and bravado, is one of the saddest stories put to film in recent years. The line that strikes me the most is nearing the end, when Claudia and Leo go to Joanne's to return her Tupperware. The dialogue goes as such:
Claudia: You don't know the first thing about me, Joanne. Nothing.
Joanne: Likewise, I'm sure. [pause] If I just met you on the street, if you gave me your phone number, I'd throw it away.
Ouch. If either of my sisters said that to me I'd have to hurt them. This is a touching, heartfelt film, and I adore it.
