I have no idea but there were many movies like "Holy Matrimony" with Patricia Arquette where you watched it (and I love "Holy Matrimony") and wonder how the men behind the film thought there was a huge audience for a young Amish boy (was he even 12?) marrying an adult Patricia?
The best of the lot, for me, is "Milk Money." This 1994 movie was directed by Richard Benjamin. From the suburbs, a group of young boys decide to go into the city and find a hooker so they can see a woman naked. It does not go as they hoped. And a hooker, Melanie Griffith, grabs them to take them home.
She does. But one of the boys is Ed Harris' son. And Ed's a single father. Melanie ends up falling for him. And trying to win by being less than honest.
Anne Heche has a very small role (and she's got black hair) as Melanie's friend and co-worker but she makes a real impression.
I'm a fan of Ed Harris because he's always giving these strong performances.
But even with Ed and Anne being as great as they are, the film wouldn't work without Melanie.
The film's a confection, a comedic confection, and just the wrong shading and the whole thing would fall apart.
Melanie's just really great in this and I wish she'd made more films like this and less like "Shining Through."
If you've never seen the film, I think you'll be surprised by how well it works. I'd pick this as one of the '90s hidden treasures.
