Tatum befriended Michael Jackson in 1976; the year this came out. The two hung out often and became close. Michael asked Tatum out to the Oscars that year; but then Tatum's Manager stepped in and said "Absolutely not! No client of mine is going to the Oscars with a n----!" Tatum detailed this incident in her autobiography , Paper Life. See more »

Big 70's flop is not nearly as bad as its reputation
This expensive 70's flop is not nearly as bad as its reputation indicates. Leonard Maltin's review is pretty accurate. And it's got some fine performances by a good cast which includes- Ryan O'neal, Burt Reynolds, Tatum O neal, John Ritter, Stella Stevens and (especially) Brian Keith. Two highlights- Tatum's negotiating and Brian Keith's speech at the end. It's got some dull stretches and the slapstick gets wearying,overall not bad.
