As a famous composer turns forty-two he enters his mid-life crisis and chases a young woman he sees on her way to her wedding.
Genre: Feature Film-Comedy
Release Date: 2-NOV-2004
Media Type: DVD
One of the best comedies of the 1970s, Blake Edwards's ode to midlife crisis and the hazards of infidelity now plays like a valentine to that self-indulgent decade, and it's still as funny as it ever was. In the signature role of his career (along with "Arthur"), Dudley Moore plays a songwriter with a severe case of marital restlessness, and all it takes is a chance encounter with Bo Derek (in her screen debut) to jump-start his libido. Julie Andrews plays Moore's wife, who will only tolerate so much of her husband's desperate need to reaffirm his sexual vitality, while Moore pursues Derek to a tropical rendezvous. The action builds to the now-famous bedroom scene that sent everyone rushing to the music store for their own copy of Ravel's Boléro. Talk about a classical climax! --Jeff Shannon

He helps out her husband and I believe temptation got the better of them both.
The movie that made Ravel's composition Bolero famous as a song to do "it" to.
Who can forget the beach scene if memory serves me correct the beach run has been parodied more than once😉
All in all a good movie but do consider the movie audience as it does earn the R rating.
The film is funny, sexy, and just about perfectly cut by a skilled director: Blake Edwards. He used his wife, Julie Andrews, as the perfect dowdy wife for whom Bo would be the perfect counterpoint. Best of all, the plot follows a logical line and ends in a way that we want it to.

“10” arrives on blu-ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 2.40:1 encode. With no expensive restoration, the picture is soft and dated. Colours are murky at times.Read more
