Trivia

When the priest (Nathan Lane) goes into the confessional and shows Jeffrey his theater posters, there is a poster for the 1992 revival of "Guys and Dolls" featured prominently on the wall. Nathan Lane starred in that production. See more »

Goofs

In the cloakroom scene at the memorial, the door to the room is left ajar when the characters enter the room, but in some of the cuts you can see that it is closed. Many of the cuts showing the door both ajar and closed are immediately back to back making the change very obvious. See more »

Quotes

Darius: Yes, I am in CATS. Now and forever. The way I see it, I was too young for Chorus Line, and too "happy" for Les Mis. I never did get that show. It's about a guy, who steals a loaf of bread, and then suffers for the rest of his life. For toast! Get over it.

My All-Time Favorite Movie
6 June 2006 | by jlombardySee all my reviews

This is, and has been since 1995, my favorite movie. Jeffrey, staring Steven Weber, Michael T. Weiss, Patrick Stewart and Bryan Bratt, also has many, many parts played by extremely well-known actors. Kathy Najimi, Kevin Nealon, Olympia Dukakis, Sigourney Weaver, Christine Baranski, Victor Garber, Robert Klein, and Camryn Manheim, just to name a few. To sum it up, it shows how important friends are in our time of need. This is one movie I can watch over and over, and I have seen it probably two dozen times or more. The writing, acting and music are flawless, you'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll love it! This is the one, single movie I can quote the most amount of lines from.
