Did You Know?
Yvonne tells Officer Lang in the diner that her luck is so bad that she had a puppy die of”parvo,” but she doesn’t even know what that is. Parvo is a virus that afflicts puppies, and is marked by severe intestinal and heart problems. It is readily preventable by making sure puppies get all their vaccines, although Yvonne probably lacked the money to pay for them.
Muriel Lang: You should be locked up in that looney bin on Staten Island that Geraldo Rivera is always exposing!
When Yvonne files for bankruptcy in the beginning, she files in New York Civil Court. People file for bankruptcy in United States Bankruptcy Court which is a federal court. Civil Court where she filed is a state court. Bankruptcy is governed by federal laws, and therefore bankruptcy cases would be heard in federal as opposed to state court.
This film was inspired by the generosity of detective Robert Cunningham (ret.) and his wife, Gina. Mr. and Mrs. Cunningham have been happily married for 31 years. The waitress and her husband have been happily married for 37 years.
Directed by Andrew Bergman. With Nicolas Cage, Bridget Fonda, Rosie Perez, Wendell Pierce. A police officer promises to share his lottery ticket with a waitress in lieu of a tip.
