Professor Lawrence Wetherhold (Dennis Quaid) might be imperiously brilliant, monumentally self-possessed and an intellectual giant -- but when it comes to solving the conundrums of love and family, he's as downright flummoxed as the next guy.

Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): A classroom scene near the end of the movie shows the same items written on the board as a scene at the beginning of the movie - and all of the students are wearing the same clothes.
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): Spenser's "Faerie Queene" is misspelled on the blackboard, an egregious error for an English Literature professor. That the camera lingers on the shot may indicate an intentional mistake by the filmmakers.
  • Movie Goof (errors in geography): Professor Wetherhold would not have been able to see his car being towed from his son's dorm room. His car is parked behind (on the south side) of the east wing of Donner Hall. The only place in Donner Hall from which it is possible to see the car from that angle is from the common area, one floor above the parking lot (level 'A' of the dorm, which matches the 'A' prefix on the door of his son's room).
  • Movie Goof (audio/visual unsynchronized): In the bar scene in the middle of the film, there is a song overdubbed. When you turn the subtitles on, the lyrics are displayed and prefaced by "Man:". However, a woman is singing.
