More Movie Taglines:
  • He is obsessed to re-create his wife...she died thirty years ago.
  • It's potentially dangerous, probably illegal and definitely crazy.
Movie Quote(s):
  • Dr Harry Wolper: I tell you Sid, that one of these days we'll look in to our microscope and find ourselves staring right into God's eyes, and the first one who blinks is going to lose his testicles.
  • Boris: You know, Harry, I'm still trying to find the big picture but I keep missing it because I am so in love with Barbara that nothing else matters. Dr Harry Wolper: What makes you think you are missing it?
  • Dr Harry Wolper: Another of the dilemmas "in which we are all", Pavlo, is that there are too many damn machines around here. We're all missing The Big Picture.
  • Dr Harry Wolper: Sequencer? Sid doesn't need a sequencer, Pavlo.... And he doesn't have the room for it anyway. Pavlo: Oh, he put all of his animals in my lab. [pause] Dr Harry Wolper: Sid may have the only biology lab in the world that has nothing alive in it.
  • Mrs Pruitt: [to Dr Wolper] Dr Novak called. He said that your proposed address to the Medical Congress on "The Profit Incentive in Misdiagnosis" is really not very funny at all.
Movie Trivia:
  • Several "flashback" scenes were filmed at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, but they were cut from the final print.
  • While filming a scene where Harry (Peter O'Toole) rides his bicycle on a downtown street, an extra stepped out from a building too early and caused him to have a minor crash.
  • At the beach house, Harry tells Boris that Lucy was a former Miss New Jersey. Karen Kopins, who plays Lucy, was a former Miss Connecticut.
  • Jeremy Leven adapted the script from his own novel.
