Did You Know?

Trivia

Katherine Heigl's character was Katharine Hepburn's stand-in. Permission was not granted to use Hepburn's name, so references to Rita Hayworth were dubbed in post-production. See more »

Goofs

Rita Hayworth was not a star in 1937. It's unlikely she had a stand-in at that time. See more »

30 April 2001 | by jtur88See all my reviews

I toughed this one out for 42 minutes, out of a commitment to see if it ever left the bar where three completely obnoxious women were wavering in and out of their respective stupors, reading an inane script the way my big sister would when her after-school friends played actress, with insipid music plinking away in the background, broken only by an occasional and brief flash-somewhere.. This film is only slightly less irritating then a full length feature consisting only of a baby crying in a room with a barking dog.
