Contrary to popular belief, VW beetles do not float on water. They may float for a few minutes due to their structure, but they soon sink as any other car would. The VW driven into the bay sank to the bottom, and a second had to be used for the scene where the car is floating. See more »

A Vibrant comedy that successfully captures the quality of those wonderful 1930's screwball classics. Director Bogdanovich makes the viewing and the homage worthwhile with an energetic performance from Streisand as a crazy coed who manages to disrupt the life styles of a square musicologist and his fiancee (O'Neal and Kahn, lovely in her film debut). There is great support from Mars, Murphy and a young Randy Quaid.
