Did You Know?


The "Looking for Mr. Goodbody" title of the Rolling Stone article in the film's story referenced the earlier 1977 Looking for Mr. Goodbar (1977), based on the Judith Rossner novel which was about the singles bar scene, whereas this film is about the singles health club scene.


Adam Lawrence: Always treat a famous person as if they're not. And a person who's not as if they were.


Carly Simon throws her drink in Adam's face over a piece he wrote about her. He later tells his boss at Rolling Stone he has a deal with Simon & Schuster. Simon & Schuster was co-founded by Carly's father. Given Carly's obvious disdain for Adam, it's highly unlikely Simon & Schuster would publish him.
