Trivia

After Michelle Pfeiffer turned down the role of Joyce, Marcia Gay Harden was approached. Like Pfeiffer, the actress responded well to the script, but ultimately decided not to take the part. Had she accepted the role, it would have been her second following Mystic River (2003) that the actress would have inherited from Pfeiffer. See more »

A Must See!!!
1 February 2010 | by lawrentziooSee all my reviews

Really, it is a movie that shouldn't be missed, absolutely pleasing. I wasn't very sure of the movie in the beginning , I saw it with all my family and, man, we laughed and enjoyed this comedy more than expected. Now i am recommending it to all my friends and also to ones who read these lines, you won't regret. I cannot understand why this movie isn't presented to the public like other far worse movies, where you expect a lot seeing the trailer and get nothing. This is completely the opposite, you start from zero and go very high. I like the characters, i like the intrigue, everything, and i am not a big fan of Andy Garcia.

A big GO FOR IT, don't think twice !
