When Grace and Maudey order Guinness (like Victor Fox's last drink) in the bar, the glass is filled in one go and immediately served to them. Guinness is never poured in one go. The three quarter full glass is left for a couple minutes for the froth to settle, then topped up and served. Also the color of the beer in their glasses is too light for Guinness. See more »

An outrageous comedy with all the heart in the world!
You know, people who make comedies so often forget it's really ok to be outrageous. Well, not this time. Unconditional Love has it all. Barry Manilow and a dwarf in a movie with Cathy Bates as the romantic lead...and it works. Not only does it work, it works very very well. In fact, I think it's perfect. I laughed so hard I think I hurt myself yet the main characters were all so human, so honest, and so very real. But isn't that where great comedies come from? Don't characters need real feelings, real emotions, and the ability to feel real pain? Well, they do in this movie. Unconditional Love is a movie you shouldn't miss, especially if you need a seriously good laugh, or you're at all curious about seeing the psychotic dwarf in the red raincoat.
