Plot Summary

Larry and Carol are fairly normal New Yorkers who have sent their son off to college. They meet an elderly couple down the hall and later in the week find that the wife has suddenly died. Carol becomes suspicious of Paul who seems to be too cheerful and too ready to move on. She begins her investigation. Larry insists she is becoming too fixated on their neighbor as all of the irregularities seem to have simple non-homicidal explanations. Ted, a recently divorced friend helps her investigation and Larry begins to become jealous of their relationship and agrees to help her. Written by John Vogel

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia Diane Keaton replaced Mia Farrow. Woody Allen had written the lead female role for Farrow, but Keaton got the part following the breakup of the pair's personal relationship. There is a rumor that, despite the very public feuding between her and Allen, Farrow showed up for a costume fitting, and needed to be informed that she was no longer in the movie. See more »
Goofs At their neighbors' house, Carol prepares coffee in the kitchen. She makes filter coffee and puts a can of water under the filter. You have to pour water in the machine to warm it up and then go through the filter. The can will be filled with coffee in the end. See more »
