Following not very successful preview screenings, the son of MGM exec Greg Morrision suggested to add narration by Charles Grodin to tie the story together.

Charles Grodin recounts the making of the this film in great detail in his 1989 autobiography 'It would be so nice If you weren't here'.
Share this
The film only received a limited release in several large cities across America. However, because of it's small budget ($3.5 million) and all star cast, it was sure to make money for MGM on video cassette, cable, regular television and foreign sales.
