A Goofy Movie CD

Carter's Notes

I'm a fan of romantic comedies of the mid-20th century. I'm also a fan of the sexual revolution of the 60's. But somehow the latter has completely soured the former. Without some formal structure to romance, and some sophistication to courting, there's no room for the screwball or the zany. Today's romantic comedies often involve highly contrived premises to give them a structure against which to work.

When I was asked if I wanted to work on this late-20th century example of the genre I was not enthusiastic at first. My agent was determined to get me interested, however. Apparently another client of his had just exited the picture and he felt he had a fiduciary responsibility to provide a replacement. I'm an admirer of Andy Bergman's work, and this film was eminently "likeable", so in the end I agreed.

The film is based on a true story (its original and much better title was "Cop Tips Waitress Two Million Dollars"), and was very much in the tradition of films in which New York City is a major character. In the vaguest way I tried to suggest some of the musical diversity of New York's street life, but always the main goal was a warm, bouncy, romantic optimism.
