When Lulu is lying in bed being questioned about her medication, she lights a cigarette. She takes it from her mouth in her left hand but in the next shot it is in her right hand as she ruffles her hair. The cigarette is in her hand with her arms crossed over her head but in the cut back to the shot of Ben as he talks she has taken a puff even though no time has passed for her to do so. See more »
First, I just want to say what a marvelous job Melanie Griffith did in this movie! She lit up the screen. Like the other reviewer said, she has been in a string of great performances. Lolita, Another day in paradise, Crazy in Alabama, RKO 281, Cecil B. Demented, and now this. I'm so happy for Melanie that she has found the right roles and that she has her life on track.
The story was great and it sort of reminded me of the old romance movies. Everything is subtle with just a twinge of romance. The ending will leave a smile on your face! Its just disappointing that it wasn't in theaters, but then again, the American public can't decide what is good, classy entertainment. Instead, we have garbage like Scary Movie and Nutty Professor 2 invading cinemas and making millions. Kudos to the cast, the director, and mostly Melanie. This is a keeper!
