  • Troubled Production: Not a massively problematic one, but things were far from smooth. Nearly a dozen writers worked on the script, and the constant rewrites caused original star Shelley Long to drop out and do The Money Pit instead. Then, a few weeks into shooting, original director Howard Zieff was sacked after falling out with the producers and Whoopi Goldberg, leading to Penny Marshall being brought in to take over.
