Seems Like Old Times Chevy Chase and Goldie Hawn, stars of the 1978 comedy thriller Foul Play, team up again for this caper. Hawn is her usual ditzy self, playing a liberal lawyer who finds her ex-husband (Chase) is shacked up in her garage, on the run after committing a bank robbery. How will her dull lawyer husband Charles Grodin cope with the news? Thanks to Neil Simon's witty script, it's good lightweight fun with a frantic pace and plenty of laughs
Chapter Two (US,1979.) Neil Simon's play turned movie about a widowed novelist who finds himself unexpectedly falling in love again.
