PG-13 | | Comedy, Drama, Romance
A single mother and waitress, a misanthropic author, and a gay artist form an unlikely friendship after the artist is assaulted in a robbery.
A bit of humor was added right after the statement "the animals used in this film were in no way mistreated" with "the actors used in this film were in no way mistreated."
Can we get you anything else? Water, coffee, couple of female slaves?
When Melvin walks to Carol's restaurant for the first time, we see him on the sidewalk, avoiding cracks as he turns a corner. There are spectators in the background, on the sidewalks and in the street, watching the movie being shot; not the normal NYC crowds.
Just after the disclaimer of the American Humane Association (The animals used in this film were in no way mistreated...) there is a second disclaimer stating "The actors used in this film were in no way mistreated."
