9.7/10.A nice funny comedy that showed Kurt Russell's comedic acting chops after his previous two great action movies The Thing and Escape From New York.He plays it well, often the straight man to Goldie Hawn's zany antics.True it does the cliche of happiness is more important than wealth or success but here it works because Hawn is a spoiled empty woman.Russell helps her change and for the better.Director Gary Marshall does an excellent job here.

Question: When Grant comes to find Annie/Joanna, how does he know exactly where to go to find her? He ends up at Dean's house without knowing where he lives.

Answer: This is just speculation, but since he knew what hospital she'd been in, he likely went there and asked who'd claimed her and where they lived. It wouldn't be too difficult.
