Trivia

According to the 12th October 1984 edition of show-business trade paper 'The Hollywood Reporter, director-actor-writer Gene Wilder bought the picture remake rights to Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM)'s classic comic-mystery movie "Haunted Honeymoon" aka "Busman's Honeymoon" (See: _Haunted Honeymoon (1940_). Wilder's wife, actress-comedian Gilda Radner, would play the part played in the original by Constance Cummings, with Wilder playing the part previously portrayed by Robert Montgomery in the earlier picture.

Goofs

When Aunt Kate slides down the banister of the grand stairs in the foyer, they creak as if wood, however the banisters are clearly marble. One may, however, assume this to be artistic licence for the benefit of humour. See more »

A bizarre late-night laugh
5 January 2002 | by (Lansing, MI) – See all my reviews

This is the sort of off-the-wall comedy that is perfect for the wee hours -- so long as you don't wake up the rest of the household, either screaming or laughing! DeLuise and Radner were especially good (as you might expect) -- it would be hard to beat their duet of "Balling the Jack." If you're looking for a logical plotline, you will have to go elsewhere. There are more twists and turns and unresolved moments than actual dialogue, I believe. However, if totally bizarre is what you're after, this is it! I found it thoroughly enjoyable.
