Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

An original Neil Simon screenplay makes Seems Like Old Times rise above what would otherwise be a forgettable comedy love triangle. Goldie Hawn (Private Benjamin) plays a good-hearted defense lawyer married to Ira, a politically ambitious district attorney played by Charles Grodin (Midnight Run). The craziness of their everyday lives becomes even more ridiculous when ex-husband Chevy Chase is framed for a bank robbery and seeks refuge with the woman he could never get over. Hawn hides the love of her life under her husband's nose as Chase tries to clear his name. Hawn tries to protect him and Grodin just tries to keep from going insane. A slapstick romance that's very often hit-and-miss, the dialogue saves this comic farce and provides wonderful moments between the three stars. Seems Like Old Times also has going for it winning supporting players and some half a dozen drooling, unruly dogs. --Robert Lane

Seems Like Old Time is still one of my all time favorite films. This film is almost too funny for its own good. A terrific throwback to the sophisticated comedies of the 30's and 40's updated for the 80's. It's too bad that they just don't make these kinds of comedies anymore. Goldie is in top form, Charles Grodin is so dry and wonderful and Chevy Chase should've never moved beyond this type of film. He and Hawn made magic before in Foul Play and it was great to see them together again. Buy it! Oh and keep any eye out for Aurora, the Parks' housekeeper and her infamous Chicken Pepperoni, no one can get enough of it.

If you appreciate the humor and ease of Chevy Chase and Goldie Hawn, you will love this movie. Charles Grodin does a fantastic job of playing the upstanding yet jealous husband in this entertaining romance. This movie has lifted my spirits, as well as my mothers and sisters, since it's release in the 80's.

Neil Simon's 1980 comedy starring Chevy Chase, Goldie Hawn, Robert Guillame, and Charles Grodin is a very, very funny movie, from start to finish. Nick Gardenia (Chase), is a divorced novelist who is living a simple, quiet life. He just wants to work on his book. But things start to go bad right away, as he is visited by two low-life crooks who want to use him as a decoy of sorts. Under the threat of death, or at least, serious bodily harm, he is forced to rob a bank, and as they all make their getaway, he is thrown from the car and left by the side of the road to fend for himself, as he is the one caught on the bank's surveillence camera. He is now a fugitive with all of the state's police force searching for him.

Desperate, he shows up at the home of his ex-wife, Glenda Parks (Hawn), a defense attorney, and his only hope. She is a very kind-hearted woman with a beautiful soul and a soft spot for the downtrodden, maybe she'll help? The problem is, her current husband, Ira Parks (Charles Grodin), is about to be appointed Attorney General, and if he finds Nick hiding in his house, he'll turn him in to the police, probably after a quick roughing up. And if anyone finds him there, Ira could easily lose all chances at his beloved Attorney General position, because his wife is harboring a fugitive. So Glenda has to hide Nick from Ira and everyone else as she tries to convince him to turn himself in, all the while they are about to throw an elegant dinner party celebrating Ira's good fortune, and Glenda has to play dumb, as if all is well.

As the plot unfolds, we see that Glenda still has some strong feelings for Nick, and she is very conflicted; ethically, she must defend Nick in court, but personally she must turn off her long dormant feelings for him.

I have seen this movie dozens of times over the years. When I was a kid they used to play it on HBO like every ten minutes. Neil Siomon was at the peak of his comedic perfection. Chevy Chase & Goldie Hawn rekindle their chemistry from Foul Play and take it to the next level. Charles Grodin's deadpan and Robert Guillame's presence just add to the mix to make it perfect. T.K. Carter and a list of other cameo-esque bit parts bring it home. Hysterical. I watched it with my 13 year old daughter and I gotta tell you it was a real treat to see a movie that relied on dialogue and acting and was funny at every turn. Sloppy by today's standards as far as suspending our disbelief in a few places, with a bit of hurried ending, still this movie is what comedy was in the late 70s and early 80s. Genuine. Perfect. I don't want to get into the old cliche of "they don't make them like this anymore," but being a cliche doesn't make it any less true: they don't. This is lost Hollywood. Chevy, like Bill Murray, like Belushi, like so many of his Saturday Night Live brethren, was the ultimate cynical smartass and it worked so well (Any chance of slowing down to 55?). Goldie was the ultimate ditzy blonde. Seems Like Old Times is just that, a fond look back at what a simple, pleasing comedy was like. Excellent!

Dig it!

Format: DVD
This movie is highly contrived; essentially a cast of characters acting in no recognizably human manner such that they end up in several comic set pieces over the course of the film. Some of these scenarios work pretty well (the trial in which Charles Grodin attempts to prosecute Chevy Chase for breaking into his house, stealing his car, and robbing a bank, while his wife, Goldie Hawn, defends Chase, who further happens to be her ex-husband). Others don't work nearly as well, including the dinner party in which various of the same parties do spit takes and get into a fist fight.

The cast is not to blame for this. Hawn and Chase give perfectly decent performances (Chase's in particular evokes his "Fletch" of a few years in the future). Charles Grodin is great.

Some of the racial portrayals are a bit dated and may give offense, but the film's greatest crime is that it just isn't very funny.
