Peter Paul and David Paul do not have the beards they wore throughout the film in the finale. This is possibly due to the original concept of Irene Cara performing The Dream in person not going ahead as planned, and the parade scene being shot slightly later after principal photography was complete and the beards had been shaved off.

An enjoyable film for 80s buffs and fans of the not-for-everybody 80s screwball comedy. Often juvenile, often exploitative, never meant to be taken seriously, an uneven performance from its lead (particularly an inconsistent accent) and occasional sloppy sentimentality drag the movie down. There are some great turns from bit players, including a young Charlie Barnett and an old Whitman Mayo. Max Gail is solid and Marsha Warfield is thin! The film features some classic lines in addition to allegedly funny lines that will make you cringe. Mostly, the movie is a harmless goof with a touch of idiotic 80s energy. 6.5 out of 10
