Goofs

When Nikki and Roger are sitting at the kitchen table reminiscing about Nikki's late husband Garret, Nikki puts a vegetable spread on a cracker. She goes to take a bite of it, but in the next camera shot the cracker is gone, and a new one (without any spread on it) is suddenly in her hand. See more »

Great Movie
27 October 2014 | by carolyn_a_allenSee all my reviews

Maybe a better choice to have played Ed Harris' character would have been Annette's real life husband, Warren Beatty. Now that would have been something. I loved this movie. The acting was superb, and I think that Ed Harris did an awesome job. I was not bothered by his bald head. Love is love no matter what you look like on the outside. It's the feelings inside you have for each other that makes you never want to be without that other person. This movie showed how hard it was for Nikki to let go when her husband died so much so that when she met Tom who looked exactly like her deceased husband she went into this fantasy mode pretending he was still with her. I think the realization of what she had been doing when Tom found out that he looked exactly like Garrett shocked Nikki into coming to her senses and finally being able to move forward.
