The plot of this movie is supposedly based upon Peter Bogdonovitch's relationship with his first wife, whom he left to take up with Cybill Shepard and make the disastrous musical "They all Laughed"

Doing the film "Irreconcilable Differences" encouraged Shelley Long to leave her hit "Cheers" sitcom in '87 to focus on movies. Shelley won an Emmy for her role as snooty barmaid Diane Chambers on "Cheers".

The set of Irreconcilable Differences was allegedly racked by nonstop fighting. The director and the producer always wanted different things. When they did finally agree on something, which was rare, the actors wouldn't be satisfied. The littlest shots literally took up to thirty or forty takes.

There was a scene in the film that took about 40 takes until everyone was satified. Drew got so stressed doing that scene that she broke down and cried in her dressing room. Ryan O'Neal came in and told her, "Sh** happens, you know... We're professionals and sometimes we're forced to work with amateurs... Tomorrow's going to be better. "Drew answered,"Really?". "You never know", Ryan replied.

Drew nearly quit the acting business after "Irreconcilable Differences" finally wrapped. Tension from the arduous three-month-long production sapped the eight-year-old's enthusiasm and left her disillusioned.
