Trivia

The film has been memorable due to its theme tune "I Just Called to Say I Love You" sung by Stevie Wonder which won the Academy Award for Best Song Oscar. The soundtrack was also composed by Wonder and also featured performances by Dionne Warwick. See more »

Goofs

Flustered after being invited on a date by an unwitting Teddy, Ms. Milner gets up and runs out of the office. In the process, she bumps into the water-cooler, knocking off the bottle. As it hits the floor, we hear the sound of glass breaking. However, the bottle remains intact, and it's made of plastic, meaning it's impossible for it to have made that sound. See more »

Quotes

[Didi takes a gun out of her dresser drawer. It goes off accidentally in the process, making for an understandably panicked Teddy]
Teddy Pierce: Do you realize you could have shot me?
Didi Pierce: I would never do that... not without good reason!

The Gene Wilder film I like the most.
17 March 2011 | by (Kenya) – See all my reviews

This is the film which is very dear to me. It stars my favorite actor: Gene Wilder.

The film deals with the topic of love-at-first-sigh and what a love and at what a time in his life!!! San Francisco ad man Teddy Pierce (Wilder) falls head over heals in love with Charlotte (Kelly LeBrock) as she walks over a grate and a rush of air from the grate causes her skirt to lift up in a revealing manner (a parody of Marilyn Monroe in The Seven-Year Itch).

Teddy is happily married to Didi, but he can't get this woman out of his mind. Encouraged by his friends Buddy, Joe and Michael, he tries to ask her for a date but mistakenly phones Ms. Milner, a plain ad-agency employee, instead. Teddy ultimately does become acquainted with Charlotte.

He begins using elaborate ruses to see her socially without his wife finding out. Meanwhile, he incurs the wrath of Ms. Milner, whom he stands up. Events come to a head in Charlotte's high-rise apartment, where she invites Teddy into her bed.

What happens next is for YOU to find out.

Buy this one without further delay.
