Trivia

Local Los Angeles locations used, were the exterior of a Tudor house in Brentwood, and nearby streets for a car chase, the steps of Los Angeles City Hall, where Mayor Bradley visited the set, and the backlot at the Burbank studios for a night scene in the rain. See more »

Goofs

Although Los Angeles County District Attorney Ira Parks was charged with prosecuting Nicholas Gardenia for the crime of bank robbery, the heist occurred in Carmel, California, which is in Monterey County, far out of D.A. Parks' jurisdiction. The trial before Judge Channing for the crime (also being in L.A. County) should not have occurred there for the same reason. See more »

nervecrackingly funny
8 August 1999 | by NefiSee all my reviews

This movie is absolutely hilarious! I first saw it a couple of years ago and had my belly aching from laughing by the time it was over. Yesterday it was shown again on TV and it had exactly the same effect on me throughout this second viewing. Playwright Neil Simon, who scripted this film had a real grasp on his prose all through the 70s and 80s, and this film is a delight for everyone familiar with his style of lining up one-liners in such a way that the viewer barely has time to breathe from laughter. All three leads are great. This is real evidence for all those who have doubts about Goldie Hawn's talents, since she is delightful from start to finish and once again proves that she was and still is one of the greatest comediennes Hollywood ever produced. A comedy classic of sorts.
