In joke: While talking to an ambulance-chasing lawyer, Fishbine mentions a woman who got her hand stuck in a garbage disposal named Natasha Gurdin - which is real name of Natalie Wood. See more »
At several places in the film, the actor's lip movements do not match the audio, revealing that the dialogue was toned down. During Tony's job interview, Fishbein is heard saying "all-day heat on" but his lip movements are "hard-on." Later, when discussing Murdoch, Jugs is heard saying "a $100 bill sticking out of his ear" but her lips clearly say "out of his ass." See more »

I remember hating this on release in '76, but seeing it again made me realize it had some serious things going on. First off, Bill Cosby was actually interesting for a change (although he was great in I SPY - TV and HICKEY AND BOGGS with R. Cup) and was not selling stupidity or jello. Harvey Keitel as the naive good new guy was as compelling as ever, Raquel Welch was THE BABE (she was good in KANSAS CITY BOMBER), and Allen Garfield as owner of the quirky ambulance outfit is always perfectly cast.
A 5 out of 10. Bruce Davison (who started his career as a lead actor) is believably human and there is a rhythm to this flick that defies genre-casting (dramady)? Anyway, not worth buying, but check it out on cable and you'll catch some subliminal surprises of the most normal kind!
