Quotes

Rowena: [Dan has just returned from what Rowena assumes was a fight with Lillian] Are you all right? You don't even have to talk about it. It must have been awful, trapped out there with that wicked tongue. Well, I hope you gave it right back to her as good as she gave it.
Dan: [pauses and smiles to himself] Oh, I know I did!

One of the few movies which manage to set up an excellent mood..
24 August 2004 | by MADHOUNDSee all my reviews

This movie just saved my day - I know this is not a movie for everyone, but I fell in love with in the first minutes. This movie has the certain "something", which I find rare in movies these days - you can clearly see that everyone has had great fun doing this. Bette Midler and Dennis Farina pull out the best roles, and the casting is awesome overall. I might just be naive, but this film kept surprising me all the time, and I can't recall the last time any movie has gone by so fast. There is not great depths in the plot, it's just plain old 'feel good have fun' hour and a half !

Worked for me, went straight into my top ten !
