Originally directed by HERBERT ROSS and starring KEVIN BACON, LORI SINGER, JOHN LITHGOW, CHRIS PENN, DIANNE WIEST and SARAH JESSICA PARKER, the film went on to success as a stage show. This time around, CRAIG BREWER (BLACK SNAKE MOAN) handles the directing chores, and the cast features KENNY WORMALD, JULIANNE HOUGH, DENNIS QUAID, ANDIE MacDOWELL, ZIAH COLON and RAY McKINNON.
