The only ever Neil Simon written film nominated for the Best Picture Academy Award. With five nominations, it is also the most ever Oscar nominated Simon film. In its year at the Oscars, it was up against another New York writer's film, Woody Allen's Annie Hall (1977), which took home most of the awards this film was nominated for, The Goodbye Girl (1977) just winning the one Oscar for Best Actor - Richard Dreyfuss.

The brass, square doorbell button mounted on the door to the apartment sounded with an electric buzzer sound when pushed. This doorbell is actually a mechanical, spring loaded model which sounds a "ding dong" as one pushes the button in and then releases button. The mechanism is on the opposite side of the door and can be seen in later scenes. One typically sees these on office doors, small apartments, mobile homes, etc. See more »
One of the best romantic comedies ever. Dreyfuss & Mason generate as much chemistry as I have ever seen on the screen from a couple that was never a couple. Quinn Cummings delivers one of the greatest child actress performance in cinema history -- always genuine and winning. The dialogue is witty and brittle. The direction never strikes a false note. And all the dualities of New York are well exploited. I simply LOVE this movie.
