A boyish Bruce Willis coming off his emergence in "Moonlighting" fights off insanely obsessed
ex-boyfriend John Laroquette while dealing with stunning Kim Basssinger's "alcohol allergy" with
hysterical results. The business meeting with the Japanese patron is classic Blake Edwards. I
found myself laughing out loud throughout this kooky farce. Very funny.
The DVD has both widescreen and standard, the transfer is pretty good, but the 2 channel dolby
is semi-hollow. Who cares, this movie is just pure fun! 5 Magnums
I would reccomend this movie to anyone regardless of age who want to watch a real comedy. There is no thinking required, just entertainment. If you do start thinking it only gets funnier....and funnier.
The whole cast does a great job and use their natural talents. There is not a weak link in the cast. A great comedy film that is really under rated. Why are movies like this always overlooked by critics and awards?
Walter Davis (Bruce Willis in his first movie) is a stressed workaholic who must bring a date to a business dinner to impress a Japanese client. In desperation his brings his sister-in-laws cousin Nadia (a brunette, and prettier Kim Basinger) who is very cute, but has a drink problem. Despite warnings not to get her drunk, Walter buys her champagne and, like some sort of human mogwai, she transforms into a crazed party animal. Things go very bad for Walter as Nadia proceeds to wreck his life. Not only that, but her totally mad ex-boyfriend David (John Larroquette) is stalking them at every turn. William Daniels (the voice of KITT from Knight Boat) even has a funny role as a disgruntled judge and the late (great) Phil Hartman plays Walter's brother.
Filmmaking legend Blake Edwards (The Pink Panther, Breakfast at Tiffany's) is the man behind the camera. He brings a lot of class and experience to what could have been a generic romantic comedy. His widescreen compositions and long, moving camera takes add a touch of sophistication, it's a shame it just had to end up being so 80's.
There are loads of hilarious moments and I suggest you pick it up whenever you see it. Just use 80's block factor 1000.
The DVD is in 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen with average Dolby 2.0 sound. A trailer is included.
