When frustrated movie studio mogul Adolph Zitz (Dom DeLuise) announces a talent search for a romantic leading man to rival the great Rudolph Valentino, thousands of hopefuls decend upon Hollywood - including Rudy Valentine (Wilder), a neurotic baker from Milwaukee who knows as little about romance as he does about acting. But when his wife, Annie (Carol Kane), leaves him for the real Valentino, Rudy goes to outrageous (and hilarious) lengths to win the role of a lifetime... and win back the love of his life.
- Commentary by Gene Wilder

Gene Wilder is at this best as Rudy Valentine. Carol Kane is adorable as Annie, his long-suffering wife. Dom DeLuise steals the movie as Adolph Zitz, troubled movie producer.
Lots of broad physical comedy and sight gags (ala Mel Brooks). Probably my favorite Gene Wilder portrayal (over Willy Wonka even!). If you are a Gene Wilder fan and have not seen this movie - get it. One of his best.
I just saw this flick for the first time in my life yesterday. I haven't laughed so hard at any flick in a very long time. Now, admittedly, I am a person who really appreciates silliness and things that happen completely out of left field.
This flick is loaded with little surprises and short gags and a few well-done comedy cliches from time to time. At no time was I ever bored, which happens in so many comedy flicks at some point.
I love Gene Wilder and I grabbed this flick and Sherlock Holmes' Smarter Brother at Fry's from an end-cap display a couple days ago. I am 40 and I've never seen either of these, and this flick is a scream!
And yes... Carol Kane is such a babe... a true babe for the ages.

Gene Wilder at his best. A wholly unexpected guilty pleasure. Lots of great cameos by well known actors and powerful performances by some relative unknowns (at that time). Read morePublished 18 months ago by Krylos
If you're a fan of Gene Wilder, this is an excellent example of his younger work. The director's cut is even more amusing to watch and it's so interesting to watch someone that... Read morePublished 18 months ago by Michelle S
