| Good old fashioned screwball comedy
This movie just gave me a good feeling. The chemestry between Hawn, Grodin, and Chase was great. Chevy Chase like always has some very funny slapstick moments. The movie kind of got unfairly thrown into the Chevy Chase's pile of flops(Under The Rainbow, Modern Problems, Deal Of The Century, ect.), this is som much better than all of those, I even thought it was better than Foul Play. If you like

Chevy Chase or Goldie Hawn, watch this movie.

Did You Know?


The filming began with some spectacular aerial photography to highlight the view of the romantic coastline. A cabin was constructed on the edge of a bluff three hundred feet above a rocky Pacific Ocean beach, where Nicholas Gardenia (Chevy Chase) is living when he is unceremoniously abducted. The bank robbery location was a small bank in the center of Carmel, California, a quaint little village, which attracts visitors from all over the world. They all seemed to be there when the Seems Like Old Times (1980) film company shot for two days on a warm April weekend. Spectators watched for hours to catch a glimpse of Chevy Chase, who was the only principal cast member working on-location. Chase obliged his fans by graciously signing autographs, and posing for pictures with them.


Dist. Atty. Ira J. Parks: The man sleeps under my bed, drives my car, and wears my tuxedo... I just want to meet him. Hold it right there. You're under arrest.
Fred: The police are on their way
Nick Gardenia: Didn't like the chicken, huh?


When Nick is sitting in the backseat of the station wagon waiting for Glenda to bring him food, the light inside the car is on and the car doors are closed. When the young couple come into the garage Nick opens the car door and exits, leaving the door open . The couple get into the car and close both doors and the light goes off. Since the light was on with both doors closed, closing the doors should not have turned off the light.
