This is the first of two movies starring Goldie Hawn and Steve Martin. The other being "The out of Towners" See more »
About 37 mins in, when Steve Martin falls over the couch and hits his feet on the table, Goldie Hawn briefly grimaces and looks at the crew possibly expecting a 'cut' before the scene continues as scripted. See more »
all i can say is that, this is my all time favorite movie and i dont know what but there is something great about this film. goldie hawn stars as gwen, a conartist who happens to stumble along the newly built house of newton davis after a one night stand in boston. it truly brings out the great giggly goldie hawn's humor and steve martin is at his best, they work great together. i give this film an 11/10. dont rent it... buy it! trust me on this one.
