Neil Simon updates his successful stage and screen romantic comedy with this
charming made-for-television version. THE GOODBYE GIRL tells the story of a
divorcee, Paula McFadden (Patricia Heaton), who begins a new life with her
aughter, Lucy (Hallie Kate Eisenberg). Paula's life is thrown for an even bigger
loop when an egotistical actor, Elliot Garfield (Jeff Daniels), sublets her
Manhattan apartment from her wayward boyfriend. Despite their initial hostility,
this unlikely pair discovers romance as they help each other cope with the
hardships of life in the big city.
Directed by Richard Benjamin, THE GOODBYE GIRL features engaging performances
from Heaton (EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND) and Daniels (DUMB AND DUMBER).
