Trivia

At one point, Steve Martin, who plays Freddy, was to play the role of Lawrence (which is played by Sir Michael Caine), with Kevin Kline potentially to be playing Freddy. Kline was not cast but would later go on to star in French Kiss (1995) instead.


Quotes

Freddy Benson: Hello Boys. It was fun. I'll miss you. Love, Janet. The Jackal. P.S. I'm keeping the money. Is that wrong?


Goofs

There is no train station in Portofino.


Crazy Credits

While the names of Stanley Shapiro and Paul Henning appear in the credits as two of this film's three writers, they are actually there just to credit their script for Bedtime Story (1964), of which this is a remake.
