Storyline

Two researchers have come to San Francisco to compete for a research grant in Music. One seems a bit distracted, and that was before he meets her. A strange woman seems to have devoted her life to confusing and embarassing him. At the same time a woman has her jewels stolen and a government whistle blower arrives with his stolen top secret papers. All, of course have the same style and color overnight bag.

Trivia

In the scene where the cars drive into the water, the stunt man who is standing up in the Cadillac convertible suffered a severe concussion when he hit the water. He could not recall doing the stunt for years afterwards. See more »

Goofs

Throughout the car chase (near the end of the movie), the "Just Married" VW is a post-1967 Beetle. However, it is a pre-1967 Beetle that is later seen floating in San Francisco Bay. This was due to the fact that the first car sank into the bay at the end of the chase scene, necessitating a second car "prop" for the "floating beetle" shot (Ref: Peter B in the DVD commentary).

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.
