Storyline

Executive George Dupler loses his temper and is demoted to the night manager at a 24 hour drugstore. After he suggests to his teenage son Freddie that he stop having an affair with suburban housewife Cheryl Gibbons, who is a distant cousin, Cheryl tries to seduce George. At home, in front of his mother, Freddie accuses his dad of stealing his girl, because he found Cheryl serving George a meal in the middle of the night, while her husband Bobby was on duty at the fire station. George then separates from his wife Helen, quits his job, moves into a warehouse, and asks Cheryl to move in with him. Written by Will Gilbert

Trivia

This film's stills photographer Greg Gorman once told Roald Rynning what it was like to work with Barbra Streisand: "Before photographing Barbra the first time, I was a little nervous. I'd heard she was demanding. I was hired only to take stills from [All Night Long (1981)], but I asked to do a special shoot with her. I remember her office called me, asking what other big female stars I had shot. I had to answer I had done none. Nevertheless, one day on the set, Barbra came over. 'I hear you want to take some pictures of me', she said. 'What did you have in mind? What colors do you want to use?' I answered her straight back. Asked her what colors she liked and the interrogation was over. From then on she was terrific. For a photographer it's easy to work with her. She knows her face very well, the angles, the lot. She loves to see my Polaroids and analyze the results. I think a great deal of her success has come from asking questions and being a terrific observer." See more »

Life's big adventure
17 June 2007 | by kate82186See all my reviews

Where to start......???? Do you want it fast or do you want it good?? This is a masterpiece......it changed my outlook on growing older! If you are a fan of brilliant one-liners than this is the film for you! This could possibly be the defining role of Barbara Streisand's career. The sheer thought of her singing country and playing the piano brings joy to my meaningless life. For anyone who is a fan of Dennis Quaid prepare yourself for his breakout role.....one that surely paved the way for stardom. Where to even begin with Gene Hackman.....he looks as handsome in this movie as he does today....which for anyone with taste....you know he looks good! Overall the impeccable acting combined with a truly imaginative plot makes for the film that defined 1981!
