The structure of the film, centering around holiday gatherings, was based on Fanny and Alexander (1982) by Ingmar Bergman. Woody Allen had long been an admirer of Bergman's films.

At the Thanksgiving table, Dianne Wiest accidentally hits her wine glass and spills some wine on the table. She and Barbara Hershey continue to have a laugh over this as Lloyd Nolan gives his speech.
