Loretta Castorini, a bookkeeper from Brooklyn, New York, finds herself in a difficult situation when she falls for the brother of the man she has agreed to marry.
While filming between takes, Cher motioned to Olympia Dukakis that the movie was going to be a dud. She originally thought that she was giving a bad performance. She went on to win the Oscar and Golden Globe for Best Actress.
I ain't no freakin' monument to justice! I lost my hand! I lost my bride! Johnny has his hand! Johnny has his bride! You want me to take my heartache, put it away and forget?
Loretta mentions that she is 37 years old with no children. Rose then says she didn't have children until she was older than Loretta. That would make Rose at a minimum around 75 years old.
Olympia Dukakis was 56 years old when she made this film. No way she looked 75.
