It’s hard to deny that the 1990 American romantic comedy has made its mark on the movie scene, with Box Office Moho listing it as the number one romantic comedy by the highest estimated domestic tickets sold at 41,176,400 tickets.
In this article we have put together a load of things you may have missed when you watched the movie.

Did you know that the famous necklace scene wasn’t actually planned?

According to director Gary Marshall, it wasn’t until the last moment of editing that they decided to use the scene. “We put it in… and it became like the trademark of the movie.”
I bet they’re pretty glad it didn’t end up on the cutting-room floor.
