Originally entitled "Bogart Slept Here" with Robert De Niro as the leading man and Mike Nichols as director. The story was supposedly based on Dustin Hoffman's life as a struggling actor, reportedly, it was the story of what happened to Hoffman after he became a star. Hoffman wanted the lead role in the film but was turned down. Artistic differences ultimately forced De Niro and Nichols out, two weeks into the shoot, after several table readings. Other actors who were also candidates for the role were Jack Nicholson, James Caan and Tony Lo Bianco. Dreyfuss was brought in to test opposite Marsha Mason. At the end of the read-through, writer Neil Simon ruled, "It doesn't work, but they do." From this, the two leads for the picture were finalized. See more »

A film for everyone who loves a blend of comedy & romance
Great movie that established Richard Dreyfuss as an accomplished
actor in Hollywood. Together with Marsha Mason,who is perfect in her role as a divorced woman soured on romance and more concerned with rebuilding her life and raising her daughter, Dreyfuss puts together a blend of wit,charm and sarcastic "one liners" as an out of work
actor trying his hardest to "make it " in New York while sharing
an apartment with Mason on a "strictly business" arrangement. Neil Simon's script is not only outrageously funny but at times compelling and few in Hollywood can shed tears as only Ms. Mason can. Herbert
Ross' direction is flawless and the chemistry between Dreyfuss and
Mason is electric. Richard came away with the Oscar but Marsha won
our hearts in this one. If you haven't yet seen this movie...... run out and buy it now ! You won't be sorry
