When the movie was filmed, Irving Feffer was the name of a Los Angeles Superior Court Judge in downtown Los Angeles. Judge Feffer's daughter-in-law, Elizabeth Feffer (now a Los Angeles Superior Court Judge), worked at 611 West Sixth Street in downtown Los Angeles. The building, now called 611 Place, was the site of the BASE jump in the movie. See more »

The story's not overly engaging, but for some reason Along Came Polly is fun. Ben Stiller just has that knack of being able to embarass himself and we love him for it. You can't help but laugh. But the film is worth a look for Philip Seymour Hoffman, too, as the child actor still looking for recognition -- and work. The basketball court scene is great, but the best is his performance with a community theatre's production of Jesus Christ Superstar. If you've ever been in community theatre, or you've hung out with actors, you'll appreciate this.
