Trivia

Josette DiCarlo was hired to play Frankie's mother before then-32-year-old Danny Nucci was cast as her son. Since DiCarlo wasn't significantly older than Nucci, she was ultimately replaced with then-50-year-old Camille Saviola. "I honestly wasn't given any explanation," said DiCarlo, "but during studio audience filming an exec approached me prior to my first scene and said 'YOU'RE Danny's mom?'. I think I knew trouble could ensue." See more »

Quotes

Vern: Warren, I'm sitting here reading "Peanuts" and it just occurred to me, do you think Shroeder could be gay?
Warren: What?
Vern: Well, think about it, you know. Everyone's outside playing baseball. He's inside playing the piano. Lucy's throwing herself at him like a tart. He could care less. And if I'm not mistaken, he colors his hair. . .

I still remember this...
30 May 2002 | by preppy-3See all my reviews

It had an undeserved short run back in 2001. The big problem was the network kept changing the nights and times for it. After episode 2 I couldn't find it!

Anyways, it was good (especially the premiere) and Bateman and Nucci really worked well together. Also, they didn't shy away from showing off Nucci's great body--he's in a towel halfway through the first episode.

So, it was a good little series--too bad it wasn't given a chance.
