A washed up singer is given a couple days to compose a chart-topping hit for an aspiring teen sensation. Though he's never written a decent lyric in his life, he sparks with an offbeat younger woman with a flair for words.
After reading the script, Robin Williams originally wanted to play the Barney-like dinosaur. He later opted to play the doctor. Ironically, he played doctors-in other fields of medicine-for "Awakenings" (1990) & "Patch Adams" (1998). He also starred opposite Edward Norton's Barney-like performer in "Death to Smoochie" (2002).

In the scene at the fireplace, the hand that puts the arm on the turntable is not Julianne Moore's. At least not the one that she is running through his hair. See more »
I hate you! You did this to me you miserable piece of dick-brained, horseshit slime-sucking son of a whore bitch!
That's perfect! I got it all on film, the kids will love it!

The closing credits thank the "city and citizens of Pittsburgh, California," where the hospital scenes were shot. However, the correct spelling of the city name is actually "Pittsburg." Unlike the city in Pennsylvania, the California city's name does not end with the letter "h." See more »
To receive a 12 certificate (which only permits one use of the word) all UK versions are cut by 7 secs to remove 3 of 4 uses of the word 'fuck'. See more »
"Nine Months" is a chick flick romcom about a happily unmarried couple (Moore & Grant) who gets preggo and, well, has a baby. A big step down for kid flick director Chris Columbus, this tumble from messy to sappy to corny to slapsticky wouldn't be worth the time if it weren't for the comic contributions of Arnold, Williams, Cusack, and Goldblum. Moore (Shoulda been Sophie Marceau) seems uncomfortably out of place while Grant hams it up dutifully (stiff upper lip and all that) as the film becomes increasingly in need of creative substance slogging its way toward its sentimental conclusion. No brainer fluff stuff for young female sofa spuds. (C+)
