YMMV: Nothing In Common
  • Awesome Music: Courtesy of Carly Simon and Christopher Cross.
  • Harsher in Hindsight:
    • Near the end of the movie, Max has to go into surgery to save his life. While Max survives, this was Gleason's last film role; he died shortly after.
      • Both Max and Gleason had serious issues with smoking. Gleason had a 4 pack a day habit which led to triple-bypass surgery.
    • Tom Hanks has revealed that he has adult diabetes himself.
  • Production Posse: Hector Elizondo, who has appeared in just about every movie Garry Marshall has ever directed, plays Charlie, David's boss.
  • Tom Hanks Syndrome: Though Hanks still has plenty of funny moments here, this was his first serious dramatic role.
