On the night of his 42nd birthday, George Webber, a popular songwriter, begins showing symptoms of "middle-age crisis." Over the succeeding weeks, he finds himself continually staring at young girls on the street, and he begins envying his high-living neighbor, whose life is one endless orgy. George's behavior causes great concern to his lover, singing star Samantha Taylor, and to his partner Hugh, who has seemingly avoided George's dilemma by being gay. While driving home one afternoon, George spots Jenny, a stunning young beauty en route to her marriage ceremony. Regarding her as "the most beautiful girl I've ever seen" (on a scale from one to 10), George follows her to the church. He later learns her name, and discovers that she and her husband are honeymooning in Mexico. Driven by the impulse to see her again, George flies to Mexico and checks into the hotel where Jenny is staying. Later, he sees the couple on the beach, and begins indulging in romantic fantasies about the lovely ... Written by
George Segal's participation in early filming occurred when the Mexico location was photographed first. When the film company returned to Culver City, for filming at the MGM Studios, production was expected, and planned, to continue. Returning to MGM from Mexico, George Segal learned that Blake Edwards had inserted a 'television musical commercial' segment for Julie Andrews, to sing and dance! The feature's interior sets were under construction, being painted, finished, and dressed on the MGM lot's sound stages. Miriam Nelson was rehearsing the choreographed segment with Julie Andrews and male dancers. Declaring that Blake Edwards was using his film to revive Julie Andrews career by riding on his coat tails, George Segal walked off the film! Blake Edwards immediately hired Dudley Moore, shutting down the production until Moore could start, and filming continued. When viewing the Mexican location segments, George Segal is the actor filmed in those scenes. These segments were never re-shot but used in the final film. The 'television commercial musical' production scene was relocated, and re-staged on location at the Pasadena Civic Theater stage, utilized stage scenery rented from the Dallas Civic Light Opera Association's musical stock sets.

When George and Samantha are looking at each other through telescopes, the scopes are seen at angles away from each other, which wouldn't be possible if they are looking directly at each other. See more »
Doesn't he do anything except swim and jog on the beach?
Oh yes! He makes me happy. So I let him swim and jog on the beach.

When the credits of the cast begins to scroll up and out of the iris of the telescope's view to George and Samantha's inside penthouse, only the members of the cast are seen and not their characters they played. See more »
I'll never forget seeing Bo Derek for the first time in this movie. I was shocked (hated the hair, but it made the character) This is a great movie about a man who is having a mid-life crisis. Dudley Moore, has just turned 42, and is single (dating Julie Andrews.) While driving around in his Rolls, he sees Bo Derek in a Mercedes on her way to her wedding. Hes totally wild over her, and she becomes a sort of obsession. So he finds out where they are honeymooning, and goes there. The movie is great, its funny, and keeps you laughing. This was also Bo's break-through. Shes a total 10, and even though she speaks very little, her character is a HUGE part of the film. Its great, everyone should see this film.
