Film debut of Thom Mathews. See more »


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 »


Didi Pierce: [referring to Teddy's friend, Joe, who has been cheating on his wife] Do you know what he did to Theresa, right in front of me?
Teddy Pierce: [Shakes his head]
Didi Pierce: He had his secretary call him and tell him he had work to do at the office.
Teddy Pierce: [laughing nervously, knowing he's about to pull the same trick] You mean that old trick still works?
Didi Pierce: [shaking her head in disbelief] Not anymore!

Wilder and Wilder...
5 March 1999 | by (Marietta, OH) – See all my reviews

Wilder's best loved comedy. It's nice to see him behind the camera also in this witty picture about a man enthralled by this model of beauty, played sumptuously by LeBrock, only to find that there's more to loving someone than just a great body. Wilder performs some of his finest screwball comedy and is given great support from Grodin, Ivey, Bologna and Gilda Radner. Stevie Wonder's song is also catchy and adds plenty of flavor to a fun romantic-comedy.
