Trivia

The project's genesis was rooted in Touchstone's hope that Leslie Dixon would pen a sequel to Outrageous Fortune (1987). The acrimonious relationship between Bette Midler and Shelley Long during production meant that script approval would have been an uphill battle. To avoid conflict, Dixon sidestepped the concept altogether and wrote this on spec with Midler in mind. See more »

Who says life has to be logical?
15 February 2001 | by lora64See all my reviews

When I first saw this movie on tv it seemed way over-exaggerated so I decided not to watch it again. Oddly enough when a second time came around to view it I did tune in and really started to appreciate the humor of it all. It's so downright funny, at times in the extreme, yet how true to life in some moments. It grows on you! Needless to say, when I like a movie that much I go and buy the video too. It's an endearing comedy to lighten your day, overall entertainment, and everyone does a fine job with their part in this "over the top" comedy. Try it, you'll like it!
