Peter Bogdanovich directed Ryan O'Neal eight years earlier in the movie Nickelodeon, which has a very similar premise to this movie, where O'Neal is playing a fictional version of Bogdanovich, going from a film historian college professor to a writer and a filmmaker. In Nickelodeon, it's the same premise only O'Neal is a lawyer (with the same kind of awkward personality) who becomes a writer and filmmaker. Also, in each film there's an older mentor who hires them on the spot: Here it's Sam Wanamaker and then it's Brian Keith: both as film producers who are desperate for their film to be fixed, and O'Neal's characters fix it.

An alternate take on Sharon Stone's nude scene is used for the TV version. Ryan O'Neal whispers a suggestion in her ear and Sharon nonchalantly drops her robe; for television, her back is turned. Recent telecasts use the theatrical take, but with Stone's breasts blurred. See more »
Ryan O'Neal and Shelley Long are perfectly matched in this movie about a couple in a marriage that falls apart due to family vs. career. An eight year old Drew Barrymore is very impressive as a child who attempts to divorce her parents because they neglect her. Thrown in for good measure is an intrepid look at the movie business and an early vixen like performance from Sharon Stone as the home wrecker.
This film is very balanced in its look at all the subjects involved. A very under rated movie that contains some acute observations about life's priorities (or lack of them).
