According to director Allison Anders (during her commentary for the DVD), this was the first time that a movie showed a woman's "water breaking" in the recording studio scene. However, such an event had already been depicted as early as Cinderella Liberty (1973). It was also the first depiction of a woman's sweater getting wet because it was time to breastfeed her baby. Anders also asked for "child care" to be listed in the end credits. See more »

Just a reminder, folks, that not all movies are supposed to be, nor do they attempt to be, Oscar-contenders. Some films are merely entertaining. I enjoyed this film for exactly that reason -- ENTERTAINMENT. If a movie makes you laugh or cry, it has accomplished its mission. Great soundtrack too, by the way (which I bought). Oh, and a little note to those of you who are trying (in vain) to be the next Gene Shalit or Roger Ebert: Some of your "reviews" are exasperatingly immature, e.g., "she's ugly." Illeana Douglas is an excellent actress with a unique beauty. I'm guessing the "she's ugly" comments come from a big fan of Baywatch and Pamela Anderson? Since when do a person's physical looks have anything to do with their ability to act?
