Like what happens in the movie, Billy Crystal and his wife Janice were hanging out in a restaurant with friends when they got the idea for the film. They were reliving funny moments and talking about the realities of marriage (after the honeymoon is over). In creating this film, Crystal was joined by writers Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel, and long-time collaborator Rob Reiner. See more »
In the scene depicting Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's farewell-in-Detroit game, there's an NBC Sports banner in the middle of the scorers table. Kareem's final season was 1988-89, NBC did not start broadcasting the NBA until the 1990-91 season. See more »
I have genuinely loved this movie! I've seen it many times, I rewatch it every time I need something sweet to soothe my soul...realistic, romantic, funny! Plus...let's NOT forget Paris...seeing the beautiful city really adds up to the movie charm! If you ever come across this one and aren't sure if it's worth watching, I hope my review will help you to just leave everything aside and press 'play'! Beautiful romantic comedy!
