Trivia

According to film critic'Janet Maslin' in her review of the film published in the 24th October 1980 edition of 'The New York Times', the hotel in the movie was the same hotel "as played by the hotel that's the main location for 'The Stunt Man (1980)". This location is the Hotel del Coronado, which is situated at 1500 Orange Avenue in Coronado, California, USA. The venue also famously featured in the classic Billy Wilder film Some Like It Hot (1959). Both The Stunt Man (1980) and Loving Couples (1980) both debuted in cinemas in the same year of 1980. However, as interiors of the hotel scenes were shot in Los Angeles at the Ambassador Hotel on Wilshire Boulevard, only exteriors of the Hotel del Coronado were featured in Loving Couples (1980).

WOW!!!
1 November 2001 | by See all my reviews

I'm honestly surprised that this isn't one of Shirley's best loved movies. I gave this a ten because of how beautifully she aged and how HOT Stephen Collins was. He now plays the gushy Brady-bunch type dad on the show 7th Heaven but here he was gorgeous. Susan Sarandon and the guy who played Walter were also really good. :) This movie is average, but harmless. I agree with that. But it's good. You look at it and think "WHAT WERE THEY THINKING!" When Susan Sarandon ends up sleeping with Walter and Shirley MacLaine ends up sleeping with Stephan. I mean there's at least a 20 year difference between both of those couples. Still, it was cute to say in the least. I loved it. 9 or 10.
