Trivia

Jason Alexander: during the block party scene, right after Hedy introduces her boyfriend Dr. Flynn to Lenny, Johnny, and Lenny's parents. After the camera pans the guitar player and accordion player in the band, you see Jason Alexander wearing a brown hat and dancing with his wife, Daena E. Title. See more »

Goofs

Lenny is sent to his Uncle's house in Queens for the summer. There is a scene in which Lenny and a friend are riding their bikes in the neighborhood and there is large suspension bridge in the back round, which looks like the Verrizano bridge, which was built in 1964. Since the movie takes place in the late fifties the bridge obviously was not built yet. Besides the Verrizano is in Brooklyn not Queens. See more »

Quotes

Lenny: That's okay I would not want to get anyone pregnant.
Alice: Oh you don't have to worry about that Barbara can't get pregnant, she has not started her period yet.
Barbara: Hey.

Well worth your time
24 October 1999 | by StiggoSee all my reviews

Just saw this at a film festival, and it was one of the highlights of my weekend. This was a sweet, funny, sometimes touching film, well directed by Seinfeld vet Alexander. The story deals with a sex-starved 14-year old boy. But since it's set in 1955 and not 1999, all he wants is to see two people in the act. He thinks his plans are dashed when his widowed mother (Patti LuPone) and her new husband send him from the Bronx to his Aunt and Uncle's in the country (Queens). He lucks out to find a bra model (Gretchen Mol) living on his block. I won't give away the rest, but Ryan Merriman as the boy was great. When this opens, as it certainly should, get right out to it. It's the kind of film they just don't make enough of.
