"It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time" (1975)
|Alternate Title:||Good Idea|
|Plot:||Sweeney (Anthony Newley) is a playwright on a career decline. He spends much of his time wheedling money and beer out of his artistic friend Moriarty (Isaac Hayes). One of his few highlights is weekly sex with his ex-wife Georgia (Stefanie Powers). She is in an unhappy marriage with a successful construction contractor (Henry Ramer).|
Georgia's husband inexplicably wants to tear down his mother-in-law's house. Georgia works to oppose this, she trades sexual favors for influence with mayoral candidate Burton (Lloyd Bochner).
Sweeney's escapades end with a fake kidnapping scam. This gets the attention of two inept police officers, played by John Candy and Lawrence Dane. These two end up dressed as garbage men in the chase scene finale; everything winds up with a happy ending.
