First (albeit brief) full frontal nudity scene for Diane Keaton. Although highly publicized as her first actual nude scene, in fact, she first appeared topless (semi-nude, not fully nude) in Looking for Mr. Goodbar (1977). See more »
When Julian and Erica are having dinner in the restaurant, Erica appears to be reading her lines from a teleprompter to the right of Julian's eyes. Done very well... but... she doesn't appear to be looking into his eyes... but... just to the right of his eyes (viewer's left). See more »

[Hits a wall full of pictures, covering his eyes partly]
Oh, I'm sorry! Oh, God, am I sorry?
WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

I generally dislike Jack Nicholson, although I certainly think he is a very talented and gifted actor... so I watched this movie somewhat reluctantly on the recommendation of a friend. To my surprise, I liked it. I too am a woman "of a certain age" and I found myself responding to this movie very much in the context of a woman Diane Keaton's age. I laughed to tears over her creativity surge-- she very accurately portrayed that kind of grief over a relationship lost... amazing! I must say however, that if I were in a position to choose between Keannu Reeves and Jack Nicholson.. well there's no decision to make--the young stud muffin would win in a heartbeat!...(although Jack really was quite charming once he got over being such a putz).. Anyway.. a fun movie that is well done...
