* WhatCouldHaveBeen: According to Diane English on a DVD making of documentary for the 2008 remake, she originally pitched it with both Creator/MegRyan and Creator/JuliaRoberts agreeing to be not only in the lead roles, but also as co-producers, and Creator/JamesLBrooks as the director. Blythe Danner and Marisa Tomei would have co-starred, as would have Candice Bergen and Debi Mazar (who remained in the final cut). The project went into DevelopmentHell after Roberts and Ryan declared they both wanted to play the same role at the first table reading. Brooks left to work on Film/AsGoodAsItGets, and Roberts declared she was no longer interested and also dropped out. Other actresses that expressed interest included Creator/SandraBullock, Ashley Judd, Uma Thurman, Music/WhitneyHouston and Queen Latifah. She also declared she wanted the script to have strong and self-reliant female characters.
