Farce / Spoof Comedy President Nixon and V.P. Agnew , as if they were Laurel and Hardy . done in a black-out style, mainly just an excuse to present gags which allow Rich Little to do his Richard Nixon persona.

Bernie Cates requests the services of the most absent-minded waiter he's ever seen, who pours water before setting the glasses, endlessly repeats questions, brings wrong orders, and ruins everything- but the bill.
Joe Mulholland, Head of Production at a Hollywood studio, makes a rather fool-hardy promise to a dying friend. He undertakes to make a major movie using the title - if not the content - of a best-selling sex manual "Love in Sex". Enlisting the help of depressed screenwriter Herb Derman and rather off-centre director Sid Spokane to try and come up with an idea or two, Joe soon wishes he was not one of those people who always try to keep their promises.Written by

In the mid 1970s, Paramount Pictures paid a great amount of money to secure the rights to Alex Comfort's sex manual 'The Joy of Sex' just so they could use the title, which they found to be highly commercial. In 1978 they hired Charles Grodin to write a script, telling him the movie 'could be about anything'. Grodin decided to use this exact situation as the premise: a Hollywood writer struggles to write a script based on a sex manual after a big studio acquires the rights. When he finished his first draft, Paramount passed on the project. The title was still used by Paramount Pictures for a 1984 teenage sex comedy (Joy of Sex (1984)) See more »
The huge prop dinosaur that is mounted on the lawn of the movie studio lot changes position in respect to nearby buildings several times throughout the film. See more »
This is surely one of the worst movies ever made. A comedy without a single laugh. The stupidity of the script, blame Charles Grodin for the entire film, is amazing. Steve Martin's performance was low, even for him. In short, awful and without redeeming features.
