Goofs

When the film starts and Morroe is shown in bed answering his phone after being awakened from a deep sleep, it's clear that actors George Segal and Zohra Lamphert have not been in bed very long as the soles of their feet are obviously dirty. See more »

lovely, quirky, human, and a lasting pleasure
24 February 2003 | by clint9laingSee all my reviews

Segal, Wiseman, Booke and Warden: each actor's performance makes for a superb piece of a patchwork quilt. These old friends may rub roughly against each other, in a NY/ethnic kind of way, but we recognize the deep understanding they share from long familiarity. The story offers us a superb ensemble cast, with a wonderful cameo from King. It will never knock "Citizen Kane" off anyone's shelf, but makes a great candidate for the second tier of movie treasures.
