Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia The young woman's critique of A Woman Under the Influence (1974) is taken verbatim from film critic Pauline Kael's review of the movie. Earlier in the film, a copy of Kael's review collection For Keeps can be seen in Jake's childhood bedroom (though ironically, that particular review does not appear in that book). See more »
Goofs With the snow storm going on during most of his shift, the janitor would have had more of an accumulation of snow on his pickup than the amount (a little more than a dusting) that he quickly brushed off after his shift. See more »

Quotes Young Woman: It's tragic how few people possess their souls before they die. Nothing is more rare in any man, says Emerson, than an act of his own. And it's quite true. Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation. That's an Oscar Wilde quote.
