Trivia:
Director Peter Bogdanovich had Ryan O'Neal and Barbra Streisand watch The Lady Eve (1941) to prepare for this film.See more »
Goofs:
Revealing mistakes: When the VW Bus is struck repeatedly during the car chase sand can be seen spilling out of the engine compartment in the back. This was obviously a junk van with the engine and powertrain removed and the sand added presumably to make up for the missing weight. The bus, when rammed by the black 1969 Cadillac DeVille convertible, is not the same one seen earlier when rammed by a 1953 Cadillac Fleetwood 75 limousine and the taxicab. This particular bus was a prop.See more »

Funny and well worth repeated viewings, 20 February 2000

This film is very funny and stays so even after repeated viewings. The plot is silly, but it doesn't matter - the film is not about plot, so much as its about how this oddball bunch of characters interact - and the situations and dialog carry the film along effortlessly. Streisand and O'Neil are wonderful - surprisingly so. A much underseen and underappreciated film.
