Did You Know?

The clinic that Lucy visits is called the "Callahan Institute" and Dr. Keats (Dan Aykroyd) states that it is "funded out of Sandusky, Ohio by T.B. Callahan, the automotive components tycoon". In Tommy Boy, Aykroyd plays a rival automotive components tycoon that is attempting to purchase Tom (T.B.) Callahan's company.

Continuity: When Doug and Marlin are talking to Henry, Doug has sunglasses on. But when it cuts back to Marlin, the sunglasses are nowhere in sight.

User Review

Never mind the sucky parts, this is what love is

Rating: 10/10

See, I am a married man. And watching this movie, at home on the sofa with my wife whom I love above anything and hopefully always will, almost brought me to tears and easily did her. This movie, no matter all the overdone/overacted characters and the fact that Adam Sandler is probably the worst person in the world the act crying, is simply the best description of love ever. To have the energy to every day win over the heart of the one you love, is what we all should do, though ever so often don't have the energy to.

I believe that movie criticism often nitpicks too much on technical details or other such stuff of -actually- little importance. Show me a person who is not moved by this film and I show you a person who knows zip about real love. Real, I mean. I am not a religious person and this made me feel closer to what people often call God, whatever that is. Maybe I exaggerate, but I want to. And no work of art, of any genre, can be asked to do any more. On scale of 1 to 10, this goes to 11. (Can you see?!)
