When Erica and Harry walk the beach, on the way back to house, in the shot just before the one when they stop in front of stairs, we can see that they've already passed the stairs, which are almost 20 yard behind them, in far distance. Suddenly, they are standing in front of them again. See more »

Quotes

Harry Sanborn: I think I'm entering into another phase with this thing. I'm mad at you.
Erica Barry: I think I'm mad at you too.
Harry Sanborn: Good, because I don't LIKE thinking about you all the time and worrying about how you are...
Erica Barry: You... worry about ME?
Harry Sanborn: Yes, honey. The schmuck, who deserves to die, worries about you. Sometimes worrying about you feels like a full-time job.
Erica Barry: Well I'm doing just fine, so you don't have to work that shift anymore!

This is as bad as it gets
26 December 2003 | by gannwSee all my reviews

I cannot believe an actress of Frances McDormand's talent would stoop so low. A nothing role and they did their best to make her look awful. Absolutely no, zero, zilch, chemistry between Keaton and Nicholson. Dialogue sleep-inducing. "As Good As It Gets" was great; this is about as bad as it gets.
