Trivia

The movie blatantly used the famous Marilyn Monroe dress flying above the street grate from The Seven Year Itch (1955) but exchanging the color from white to red. The image was the dominant one used in the film's press and marketing materials, particularly movie posters. The picture was not the first to do this in recent times as the Barbra Streisand comedy All Night Long (1981) had used it about three years earlier where Streisand is seen climbing up a pole wearing a violet dress with three male characters beneath her.

Goofs

In the opening scene, Theodore Pierce is shown on a ledge with his back up against the building. The ledge is reasonably wide, and his feet are clearly at least a couple of feet from the edge. When the camera goes in for a closeup, however, his feet are right at the edge, implying a much narrower ledge. In addition to the above, in the long shot, he is standing in front of the window . . . the seagull lands . . . and cut to the closeup, he is now on the ledge between two windows. There was not enough "real time" for him to move sideways on the ledge. See more »

Yo, what's with the lousy ratings?
22 November 2000 | by (West Chester, Pa) – See all my reviews

There's a lot of things going for this movie: 1) Great, great Stevie Wonder musical score; 2) Gene Wilder in real romantic distress, and 3) first class ensemble work involving Gilda Radner, Joseph Bologna, Judith Ivey, Charles Grodin and others. Each of four very close friends encounters extra-relationship entanglement, film centers on Wilder's infatuation with much younger model LeBrock. The real fun is in the interaction between and among Wilder's friends, a truly enjoyable experience. Lots of negative comments here on IMDb related to "the original" movie (which I haven't seen) - I think it's only fair to judge this one on its own merits. I could watch this movie 20 times, in fact, I HAVE watched this movie 20 times. With apologies to all the bashers I give it 10 out of 10.
