If "What's Up Doc?" was The Beatles, "For Pete's Sake" is Herman's Hermits.
Audiences still had "What's Up Doc?" fresh in their minds by 1974, so on that alone--I think the movie did OK at the box office. But the differences are MANY; mainly the script which feels too much like a sit-com or a (bad) slapstick comedy. The cast of FPS is a mere shadow of the WUD cast, and Barbara - who looked pretty snazzy & sexy in WUP?, look horrible in that short wig in FPS (was it a wig or a bad haircut from Jon Peters?). FPS is not all that bad , and has some funny bits (the dog chasing her on the subway) but people expecting this to be "What's Up Doc, Part 2" were let down. The title sequence animation / song in the opening credits is cute enough.
