With the help of a talking freeway billboard, a wacky weatherman tries to win the heart of an English newspaper reporter, who is struggling to make sense of the strange world of early 1990s Los Angeles.
Included among the American Film Institute's 2000 list of the 500 movies nominated for the Top 100 Funniest American Movies.
I don't put any pressure on you, do I?
Harris: Not at all... I don't pressure you, do I?
SanDeE*: No, no, I just don't think there should be any pressure.
Harris: No. Tell me if I pressure you.
SanDeE*: OK. And you too, but don't feel like you have to.
When Harris tries to tell SanDeE* that he can't go to Santa Barbara, the busker (guitarist) at the left is playing non-stop but doesn't make a sound.
SanDeE* (Sarah Jessica Parker) is very peculiar about how her name is spelled. Still, the character is listed as "Sandy" in the credits.
A deleted scene featuring John Lithgow was reinstated in the cable-tv version of the film.
