A divorced woman and her daughter come home to find that her boyfriend has left for an out of town job with no warning. This has happened before. The second surprise comes in the form of another actor who has sublet the apartment from her boyfriend (who did not mention the pair of females who would be in residence). After some negotiation the two decide to share the apartment even though she has vowed to stay away from actors. Written by

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
