Penelope Ann Miller,
Henrietta Robins works out of her home and her husband Pete drives a cab to try to support her. When Pete gets a tip from one of his fellow drivers that a deal will be made by the Americans and the Soviets over pork bellies, he decides to invest in the market, but needs to $3000 to invest. Henrietta then goes to extreme lengths to get the money by dealing with first a loan shark, then a madame, then the mob and finally cattle rustlers. All this in the name of love. Written by

If "What's Up Doc?" was The Beatles, "For Pete's Sake" is Herman's Hermits.
Audiences still had "What's Up Doc?" fresh in their minds by 1974, so on that alone--I think the movie did OK at the box office. But the differences are MANY; mainly the script which feels too much like a sit-com or a (bad) slapstick comedy. The cast of FPS is a mere shadow of the WUD cast, and Barbara - who looked pretty snazzy & sexy in WUP?, look horrible in that short wig in FPS (was it a wig or a bad haircut from Jon Peters?). FPS is not all that bad , and has some funny bits (the dog chasing her on the subway) but people expecting this to be "What's Up Doc, Part 2" were let down. The title sequence animation / song in the opening credits is cute enough.
