The scene showing Michael Caine stealing and flying the Aerospatiale (now Eurocopter) AS355 helicopter, to take a lady for a spontaneous ride, was done by dressing up veteran film pilot Al Cerullo as the woman, who then flew the helicopter on camera. See more »
[Meeting the director for the first time]
Yeah, the script is, uh... very interesting. There are only a couple of things I have a problem with.
Oh, yeah? What are they?
The story, and the dialogue.

I like this very silly movie about the making of a movie set during the Revolutionary War. History takes a back seat to the backstage madness as film crew invades a small town in the American South... ...except that this film was filmed on Long Island. Living on the Island I get great joy watching all the technical gaffes in the film, only the lead characters cars have non-New York license plates, a Long Island Railway Train goes by in the background and on it goes. You don't have to have sharp eyes to see the errors, they are glaring if you know that they are there. They don't take away from the fun, they add to it since as Alan Alda's character quickly finds out, there is nothing real about making movies.
The cast is great across the board, with everyone seeming to have such a good time its infectious.
See this movie, its just a lot of fun.
