There are would-be funny sequences that don't work (such as the overused montage in which Daphne interviews a bunch of weird dates for her daughter or the scene where Maggie tries to get rid of a suicidal client), but there are enough genuine laughs to keep the material light.The sequence in which Daphne asks her daughter what an orgasm feels like is both funny and touching because there's honesty in the way both Keaton and Moore play it.
