Trivia

During the two week rehearsal period before filming began, then-bachelors Tom Selleck and Steve Guttenberg took the long-married Ted Danson out on the town with them, visiting a few Toronto night clubs, bars, and restaurants, to rekindle the feeling of bachelorhood they had to project in the film. The three caused a lot of excitement among the public whenever they went out to party. See more »

Goofs

After Peter and Michael left the show early to check on Jack and Mary (after repeatedly not getting any answers by phone), Peter says to Jack, "I let the phone ring for five minutes..." However, the answering machine would have picked up after two or three rings. See more »

Quotes

Jack Holden: You're a good man, Peter.

great 80s humour
26 March 2003 | by trvwatsonSee all my reviews

Having only watched this movie once when it first came out, i decided to go into it with an open mind as its quite an old film, and i couldn't remember much about it, it was very funny but also at times a little daft, i didn't see the logic in bringing in the hole drug smuggling story line it did put a damper on things and ruined the story just a little, but all in all a really funny film with hilarious lines, and the 80s humour still sounds good today.
