Trivia

Back when the movie was supposed to start filming in 1997 actress Alicia Silverstone was originally cast in the role of Page and Doug Liman (the director of Go (1999) and Swingers (1996)) was set to direct, but as time passed Jennifer Love Hewitt ended up playing Page and David Mirkin (who also directed Romy and Michele's High School Reunion (1997)) took over directing duties.

Alternate Versions

According to director David Mirkin some scenes where changed due to pressure from the MPAA to give the film a R rating:
  • The scene at the beginning where Ray Liotta and Sigourney Weaver are laying on the bed was edited so you don't see Ray kissing an "objectionable area".
  • Jennifer Love Hewitts line "Piss off" (in the bar) originally was "fuck off".
  • In the Russian restaurant one line by Elya Baskin was subtitled "Can I tickle you with my big Russian sausage?" but originally it was "May I tickle your breast with my 'Russian love tool'?"

Romantic Comedy (Not Exactly)
7 March 2004 | by mjw2305See all my reviews

The film was billed as a romantic comedy, but I didn't see it that way. It's certainly a comedy (with a little romance) but this is far closer to Dirty Rotten Scoundrels than Pretty Woman.

Anyway, when i watched it i found the film to be one of the best comedies i've seen for years. Its about a sexy mother and daughter pairing of Sigourney Weaver and Jennifer Love-Hewitt who basically marry men for their money; every character seems to be double crossing every other character, and it makes for terrific viewing.

Each member of the cast puts in a top performance, the characters are all intelligently written and the story is very strong and interesting.

I have to recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys a good laugh, this is definitely not just a another chick flick, it is a brilliantly funny movie. 8/10
