Trivia

The fender bender Judy causes as she crosses the street to the Bristol Hotel was added on the spur of the moment. When no stunt cars were available, Peter Bogdanovich instructed a crew member to rent two cars and make sure he got collision insurance. Then he staged the wreck before returning the battered cars.

Goofs

When the cars chase the three wheeled bike, they drive from a hill with a STOP-sign. On the right, viewers will note some parked cars (Chevrolet Corvair, Ford, Pinto and a Rover). In the next shot, when the Cadillac limo passes, the three cars have disappeared and have changed into a 1971 Chevrolet Vega coupe, Chevrolet Caprice coupe, Triumph GT-6. See more »

Quotes

Howard: What am I gonna tell Eunice?
Judy: That's the easy part. You go up to her room. She answers the door; now she will have been crying so her eyes will be all bloodshot and her nose will be all red and runny, but you look past all that.

Funny and well worth repeated viewings
20 February 2000 | by jefuSee all my reviews

This film is very funny and stays so even after repeated viewings. The plot is silly, but it doesn't matter - the film is not about plot, so much as its about how this oddball bunch of characters interact - and the situations and dialog carry the film along effortlessly. Streisand and O'Neil are wonderful - surprisingly so. A much underseen and underappreciated film.
