The main set built for the picture was the home of upper-middle-class professionals Glenda Parks and Ira Parks (Goldie Hawn and Charles Grodin respectively). There are unusual touches which reflect Glenda's warm personality and her penchant for aiding the down and outs of the world, whether human or animal. The Tudor-style house consisted of a living room, dining room, study, kitchen, staircase, upstairs hallway, and pantry. The exterior of the house matched perfectly the location house in Brentwood, California, used for exterior scenes. The interior of the set house is larger than the real one. The Tudor style was chosen for its fine workmanship and paneling. Everything was specially constructed, including the oak hardwood floors, the custom-cast staircase, the real brick walkway, the real asphalt driveway, and the custom-made metal sash windows. The wallpaper was custom designed in New York. The house was painted in three values of grey taken from the wallpaper. The muted greys were used because the neutrality of the color allows blond star Goldie Hawn to stand out against this background. Even the oak hardwood floors were stained grey. The study is a contrast in style with its dark wood and red wallpaper. This is the Ira Parks (Charles Grodin) character's room. The house was decorated with collections of brass, patchwork, animal artwork, books, and antique-style furniture, all blending with the personalities and lifestyles of the home's occupants.

This movie just gave me a good feeling. The chemestry between Hawn, Grodin, and Chase was great. Chevy Chase like always has some very funny slapstick moments. The movie kind of got unfairly thrown into the Chevy Chase's pile of flops(Under The Rainbow, Modern Problems, Deal Of The Century, ect.), this is som much better than all of those, I even thought it was better than Foul Play. If you like
Chevy Chase or Goldie Hawn, watch this movie.
