The film, shot in 1980 by a small crew on the streets of Manhattan, reunited Audrey Hepburn and Ben Gazzara. According to director Bogdanovich, Hepburn and Gazzara had fallen in love while making Bloodline (1979), but Gazzara had subsequently fallen in love with Elke Krivat, who became his third wife. The tension between Hepburn and Gazzara, and Gazzara's depression over his imminent divorce from his second wife, made it "difficult at times" on the set. See more »

Most of the major actors here do their best with not much to work with. The plot is nonsensical and way over the top. The dialogue seemed to be written by an amateur even though Peter Bogdanovich actually wrote it. This is supposed to be a romantic comedy. If so it's a comedy without any comedy and not much romance. The saving grace here is the nostalgic factor. Watching Audrey Hepburn and Ben Gazarra is a pleasure and in a different movie they may have further contributed to their impressive careers. In this mess, their scenes are impressive to watch precisely for their skill but what their characters do defies logic and you simply just don't buy it. John Ritter is very good and Dorothy Stratton holds her own because all she really has to do is look gorgeous. Collen Camp is, at best, mediocre and the weakest link in this cast. This film is only for film buffs who want to relive an era and marvel at the grace and charm of Ms. Hepburn. They may have all laughed but they weren't watching this movie when they did!!!
