Editorial Reviews

Neil Simon strikes again! This time, America's king of comedy has teamed two of the most popular performers around -- Goldie Hawn and Chevy Chase -- in an old-fashioned romantic farce. Nick Gardenia (Chevy) is a writer who while laboring over a novel in his oceanside retreat, is kidnapped by two crooks who force Nick to rob a bank for them. Deep in trouble, Nick has no one else to turn to for help but his ex-wife Glenda (Goldie). Because Glenda is a sucker for strays (her house is packed with stray dogs), she takes him in. The problem is keeping him out of sight of her uptight district attorney husband (Charles Grodin). But Nick keeps popping up in unexpected places. This is one of Neil Simon's funniest!

5.0 out of 5 stars If these are old times, more of them please! January 17, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is easily my family's favorite movie!! January 25, 1999

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Never a dull moment March 23, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hysterically funny May 19, 2006
Hysterically funny, Goldie plays one of her best roles ever. When I first saw this on television I only caught a glimpse. I immediately rushed to the DVD store and was sorely disappointed when I found out they didn't carry it. Now a few years later it's available and I've been able to watch with my friends the entire movie. This movie is so funny and even though I'm not a Chevy Chase fan I loved every moment of this movie. Goldie plays a lovable attorney married to the district attorney. Their lives are interrupted when Goldie ex-husband shows up on the scene. I must say one of my favorite moments is when Goldie's housekeeper yells out the door, "I always knew I'd catch a robber hanging out with his family." A must-see movie you don't wanna miss this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Seems Like Old Times February 16, 2007
This movie is a classic, and one of my all-time favorites. Goldie Hawn and Chevy Chase are in top form at the height of their careers. Charles Grodin and Robert Guilliame are also terrific in their roles. I highly recommend Seems Like Old Times!

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!
