The project's genesis was rooted in Touchstone's hope that Leslie Dixon would pen a sequel to Outrageous Fortune (1987). The acrimonious relationship between Bette Midler and Shelley Long during production meant that script approval would have been an uphill battle. To avoid conflict, Dixon sidestepped the concept altogether and wrote this on spec with Midler in mind. See more »

[Dan has just returned from what Rowena assumes was a fight with Lillian]
Are you all right? You don't even have to talk about it. It must have been awful, trapped out there with that wicked tongue. Well, I hope you gave it right back to her as good as she gave it.

Molly De Mora (Paula Marshall) is marrying Keith Marks (James Denton). She's reluctant to invite her divorced parents who hate and haven't seen each other for 14 years. Lilly Leonard (Bette Midler) is a self-obsessed actress. Dan De Mora (Dennis Farina) left her for Rowena (Gail O'Grady). Lilly brings along her boyfriend Alan (David Rasche) to the wedding. Keith hires photographer Joey Donna (Danny Nucci) without realizing that he's been hounding Lilly taking unflattering photos. It's a combustible mix. Dan and Lilly still have fuel for the fire.
Farina is an unlikely rom-com lead. He and Midler do have plenty of combative energy. I don't understand Keith's despise of the forbidden relationship. I don't see it as that forbidden anyways. Marshall is good. Despite some early ugliness, Nucci grows on me. They become a charming second coupling. It would have been better if Lilly and Dan are forced into isolation which rekindles their romance. They basically jump into bed too quickly for me. This has its moments and a good cast. It's not a big hit but it works.
