The ending for this film was a bone of contention during production. Three endings were filmed by director Don Siegel during this picture's principal photography. A fourth ending was shot during re-shoots, directed by Robert Ellis Miller. Ironically, star actor Burt Reynolds had recently starred in and directed a movie called The End (1978). See more »

Rough Cut is delicious froth, a shiny bauble of wonderfully made costume jewelry - not the real thing, but so much fun you don't care how silly and artificial it is. Burt Reynolds and the overpoweringly gorgeous Lesley-Anne Down are so perfect in the lead roles that you forgive this movie its many flaws.
This is, essentially, a fairy tale. You know everything will go right, it's just a question of how. It's like the great early 1990s British show Lovejoy
filmed in a beautiful England of pastels and greenery, of charming U
characters and not-all-that-menacing bad guys.
It's just a very enjoyable, very romantic caper movie with two terrific stars and a fine supporting cast, filmed in splendid colors. Everything doesn't have to be Some Like It Hot.
