Olympia Dukakis, who has a small role in this movie, is the subject of an article in a newspaper, about herself, and her cousin Michael Dukakis, the then Governor of Massachusetts. It can be seen when Tess rips out a page of the newspaper while on the ferry. See more »
In the opening shot, the Staten Island Ferry is clearly the "Gov. Herbert H. Lehman". When Tess and Cyn disembark from the same Ferry at the South Ferry Terminal it shows them getting off a different Staten Island Ferry, "The American Legion". See more »
What if he doesn't?... pop the question?
I really don't think that's a variable. We're in the same city now, I've indicated that I'm receptive to an offer, I've cleared the month of June... and I am, after all, me.

How can you go wrong with this delightful comedy? Besides having a great cast headed by Melanie Griffith, there's Harrison Ford (in one of the rare romantic comedies that suits his talents), Sigourney Weaver and wonderful Joan Cusack. And Olympia Dukakis, Alec Baldwin and Kevin Spacey are in it too (don't blink)! A great musical score and Oscar winning song by Carly Simon, all directed by Mike Nichols, I give this two thumbs up, and a 10!
