Storyline

New Yorkers Paul Bratter and Corie Bratter née Banks have just gotten married. He is a stuffed shirt just starting his career as a lawyer. She is an independently minded free spirit who prides herself on doing the illogical purely out of a sense of adventure, such acts as walking through Washington Square Park barefoot when it's 17°F outside. Their six day honeymoon at the Plaza Hotel shows that they can get to know each other easily in the biblical sense. But they will see if they can get to know each other in their real life when they move into their first apartment, a cozy (in other words, small), slightly broken down top floor unit in a five story walk-up. While Corie joyfully bounds up and down the stairs, Paul, always winded after the fact, hates the fact of having to walk up the six flights of stairs, if one includes the stairs that comprise the outside front stoop. Beyond the issues with the apartment itself, Paul and Corie will have to deal with an odd assortment of neighbors... Written by Huggo

Trivia

When Jane Fonda is shown going up the stairs to her apartment, they used the same footage of her for every floor she climbs. As she nears the top of the stairs, every hallway flooring (right beside the spindles), has the exact same damage done to it, and a wrinkle or tear in the hallway carpet runner is in the exact same place on every level.

Goofs

During the opening credits, while the horse and carriage are making their way to the Plaza, an obvious double is standing (or should I say "sitting") in for Robert Redford. It's harder to see, but I think there was possibly a Jane Fonda double early on in the sequence. She is definitely the one who throws the bouquet to the mounted police officer, but Robert Redford doesn't show up in the carriage until the close up at the Plaza. See more »

Agreeable entertainment
22 August 2001 | by Boyo-2See all my reviews

You won't roll on the floor laughing but you won't be sorry you spent 90 minutes with the characters on-screen. Very light and easy to take, brought to a nice level of fun by some very talented actors. Mildred Natwick earned her Oscar nomination; I wonder why Charles Boyer didn't get one, too. Fonda & Redford are both so young its hard to remember they were ever that age.

I lived in a walk-up apartment in Manhattan (fifth floor!)and had to quit smoking so I wouldn't have to have an oxygen tank installed on each floor in order to just make it home every night. I enjoyed reading the 'trivia' section about this movie and find it very interesting that the French version had to change the running joke to the 9th floor; since they are also infamous for smoking, one wonders why elevators were not more popular.
