Did You Know?


Joseph Maher's last film. See more »


When the main characters are driving out of Boston to supposedly head for New York City, they are seen passing over the Longfellow Bridge over the Charles River. This leads to Kendall Square in Cambridge and would be not be an acceptable route. In reality they would have taken I90 (Mass Turnpike) to get to New York and would not have crossed the Charles River until the I95 interchange in Newton. See more »


Henry Clark: You're throwing us out?
Mr. Mersault: Good heavens, no. Security will do that.

A nice, warm hearted, funny little comedy.
4 July 2000 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

I have always been a big fan of Steve Martin, and hilarious 80's comedies like 'Trains Planes and Automobiles', so thats why I decided to rent this film. And I can tell you, I was not disappointed! Its not an hilarious movie, but it is funny from beginning to end. The mishaps that Goldie and Steve go through are sometimes predictable, but are always good for a chuckle. And John Cleese just steals the show. I have not seen the 1970 version, but I found this one pleasant and light hearted. I love watching 'endless mishap' comedies like National Lampoon's Vacation and 'Trains Planes and Automobiles', and this is another one to add to my collection. Steve Martin, you are king! And I can;t understand everyones negative comments on this film - maybe they were expecting just too much.
