Until this film It seemed that Neil Simon was at his best, quite brilliant and at his worst, still entertaining.

Seems Like Old Times is another one of those near-misses that leaves a movie critic in a quandary. It's a funny movie, and it made me laugh out loud a lot, but in the final analysis it just didn't quite edge over the mystical line into success.

That film is helped by some wonderful performances. Chevy Chase is brilliant; Goldie Hawn is only a half-step behind. But most of all, it's a sign of Simon at his best.

The utterly inane tone and lackluster presentation of "Seems Like Old Times" conspire to diminish the personality resources and comis skills its costars do command.

TV Guide

A thin plot heavily laden with many of Neil Simon's best one-liners makes this a pleasant way to spend 102 minutes. Chevy Chase is forced to abet some bank robbers, and soon the cops are after him.

Not a sequel to "Foul Play"! There's little mystery here with Chevy Chase as a fugitive hiding at his ex-wife Goldie Hawn's house. Charles… More

A hilarious comedy about love and marriage. It's sort of a love adventure, and it's fun. I really liked this movie, and it has a good cast too.
