Trivia

Neil Simon said of his experience working on the film: "With a play, I have only two people to please - myself and the director. With this movie, it was 19 executives, a director who'd never done anything but animation before, and two stars who would tell you what lines they'd say and what lines they wouldn't say." See more »

Goofs

The film opens in San Francisco, 1956 and the on the wall of the nightclub (Dexter's) is an advertisement for KJAZ FM. That radio station did not sign on in San Francisco until August, 1959. See more »

I liked this movie
1 March 2001 | by maxwellshamSee all my reviews

Look I admit its not the greatest ever made but I enjoyed it alot. It does not really do much wrong except maybe take the idea a bit far to be believable but look it beats an action movie. I wish they had made better charactors who were more believeable but that would have risked making it less funny. I remember though most clearly on of the lines from the movie which really stood out and was hilarious and is still everytime I think about it. Alex Baldwin is getting beaten up and thrown round a room by this hotshot rich guy who he really does not like and he gets thrown into a cupboard totally destroying the room and he is busy of all things handing out insults to his aggressor. The best of which is: "that suit...it looks like the lining to a better suit"
