There was originally to be a line where Brad (Brad Silverman) asks Rita (Michelle Pfeiffer), "Are you wearing a Wonder Bra? Because you look wonderful today..." but Silverman thought the line was offensive to David E. Kelley (Pfeiffer's husband) and refused to say it. See more »

Lucy doesn't need me anymore. She has a new family now... and she doesn't need me anymore.
Is that what she said?
It's because I know that. Because I just know that.
Well. That's the first stupid thing I've ever heard you say.

A Truly wonderful film that left you thinking and feeling for hours after walking out of the cinema.
Michelle Pfeiffer is exact in her portrayal of the smart, rich, no-nonsense lawyer who realises how empty her luxurious and successful life is. As always she delivers an outstanding performance and reminds us of just how excellent and beautiful an actress she is.
Sean Penn is so believable that you forget that he doesn't actually have anything wrong with him...he captures every emotion perfectly and instills all of that emotion in the audience. Penn is highly under rated in the world that is movies, as he shows with this Oscar potential performance.
The young actress who plays his daughter is amazingly mature in her acting, whilst always managing to capture the innocence of her youthfullness. On top of all that she is gorgeous. The combination of three excellent main actors combined with the supporting actors and the genuine theme and style of the film makes I am Sam an excellent and must see film. Truly Inspiring.
