Production Designer Gene Callahan used a closed employment office in New York as a studio sound stage for this film. The facility provided the picture with five sets, one of which was actually for an employment office. See more »
After Sonny and Candice arrive at Donald's cabin, Donald is serving scrambled eggs to his guests. While he is serving, he has four bullets on his vest on his right-hand side. After turning around to return the pan to the stove, he is missing one bullet. See more »
I gave it a 8 , and my wife thought it was a 6. Then this film must be a 7. If you have ever been hit by hard luck, one can relate with these characters. Robin Williams, when he was at his funniest, performs this rambling nonsense. Especially when he tells the events of the robbery to his fiancee, does a tv counterpoint (ie there would be no criminals if there were no victims, unless the criminals robbed other criminals, but I am diluting here) and acts out a gun battle. Walter Matthau plays the crabby straight guy who tries to fix events. Small role for Jerry Reed, watch the gas station scene; it's funny. Comedy is so hard to do, it's an art, much easier to make a horror film or action movie, but to get comedy right you have too hit a groove. This film does it!
