Review

Hot gets you into trouble, cautions high-living 1940s-era playboy Alec Baldwin. He doesn't know the half of it. Days before his marriage to Hollywood studio heiress Elisabeth Shue, he falls madly in bed with shapely lounge singer Kim Basinger and ends up in an unlikely shotgun marriage. They divorce, they remarry, they divorce, they... you get the picture. Baldwin, all cool confidence in his sharp suits, and Basinger, who looks poured into her stylish, curve-hugging gowns, fell in love while shooting this 1991 film. Unfortunately their onscreen chemistry, apart from a couple of simmering bedroom scenes, is anything but combustible.
Neil Simon based his original screenplay on a real-life Hollywood story of l'amour fou, but even in his hands the ping-ponging romance feels contrived. Without that troublesome heat of uncontrollable passion, this amiable comic drama winds up lukewarm. --Sean Axmaker --Amazon.com

Based on a true story, The Marrying Man tells the story of Charlie Pearl (Baldwin) and Vicki Anderson (Basinger), he a rich playboy, she a Vegas lounge singer and girlfriend of gangster Bugsy Siegel. They love, fight, marry. Four times. Funny one-liners, great cast, fantastic songs and an authentic recreation of the glamorous late 1940's, early 1950's era are all propelled by real life husband and wife team Baldwin and Basinger's brilliant screen chemistry. The couple fell in love on the set- and it shows. Their portrayal of a couple whose sizzling heat fuels a love-hate relationship which takes over and nearly destroys their lives is backed up and given light relief by the perfectly chosen comedic supporting cast. Fisher Stevens and Paul Reiser feature as some of Charlie's struggling Hollywood friends, Reiser giving a wry narrative throughout which aids in the films continuity and light tone. Armand Assante, as Bugsy Siegel with an ironic sense of humor, delivers a refreshing and different slant on the usual movie gangsters. Robert Logia is fantastic and funny as the aggressive and egotistical movie studio owner and Elisabeth Shue is terrific as his neurotic and spoiled daughter, engaged to Charlie, but who is no match for sexy songstress Vicki. Basinger who did all of her own singing, gives a knock-out performance as the talented and ambitious singer. Her delivery- sexy, suggestive, vibrant- is perfect. In a sleazy Vegas casino, Charlie and his friends' first sight of her back-lit, curvy figure and the sound of her throbbing voice causes the stuttered and dazed reaction of: "she has great ....... phrasing" to which Reiser's character replies, "Oh yeah, the first thing I noticed when we walked in here was her phrasing".Read more ›

I had never heard of this movie & some how found it on Amazon & read some reviews & figured what the heck, for less than $5.00 I can get Kim Basinger in blu-ray. She is so nice to look at. It's a fun movie to watch, if you like Kim, or for you ladies, Alec. I can't compare it to the dvd quality as I have never seen it in this format, but the blu-ray is pretty nice & the price is right too. I say if you like Kim or Alec go ahead & get this. You will probably like it too. I can't believe how really good Kim sang either. Really unexpectedly nice. Did I mention how NICE Kim looked !!!!!!!

Let me start off by saying that my 5-star rating is for Kim Basinger's singing of these fantastic old songs. The DVD itself boasts no real extra features, so it deserves 3 stars at best. Toward the end of the film, I experience a few glitches, but that may simply be with my dvd player--you may not have the same problem with yours.
The film is charming. It is predictable, but still an enjoyable experience, thanks mainly to Kim Basinger. (By the way, I was not a fan of her at all until I saw her in this film.) Her performances of songs like "Let's Do It" and "Honeysuckle Rose" may be considered too sexy by purists, but considering modern sensibilities and the fact that she is supposed to be singing in a Las Vegas club in the fifties (the decade of Marilyn Monroe), I think her approach is perfectly fine. Her "stage presence" during these numbers is scintillating--I would love to see her perform music like this live in concert. The musical arrangements are fantastic also.

This movie is so hard to find because it wasn't a huge box office success. But to find it on Amazon for an amazing price on Bluray made this the perfect gift! It doesn't have any special features but the actual bluray disc was in great quality. And I really couldn't beat the price I bought this for!

I have bought 4 copies of this movie since it first came out. The first was on a laser disc. I loved Kim's singing and acting as a nightclub singer in the 50's. I wonder why she did not do more singing of "standards"? I would have bought every CD she recorded. I have added her album to my I-Tunes collection, although I-Tunes dies not sell it (Big Mistake).

Her nightclub performances in the movie, like Michelle Pfeiffer's siding off the black piano in "The Fabulous Baker Boys" are two scenes forever seared into my memory.

What a gal Kim Bassinger is. No wonder Alec Baldwin fell in love with her again and again. I don't blame him at all.

Charley Pearl (Alec Baldwin) can't get enough of Vicki Anderson (Kim Bassinger). Or can he? Or will he? Or does he?
And no wonder, Kim Bassinger's Vicki is hot enough to set off all the sprinkler systems from Las Vegas to Hollywood.
Infatuation turning into a mill stone worn so eagerly by Alec Baldwin's Charley is done with wit and style.

I have loved this movie ever since I saw it for the first time many years ago. To me, it was the best of Kim and Alex when they were married. They have wonderful chemistry. The supporting cast is HILARIOUS and the music is great (Kim Basinger is a wonderful singer). Great love story, with the theme of never giving up on the one you love. When it's meant to be, it's meant to be!

i really enjoyed it. It was a funny movie and the cast was great. Both of my adult children did not think they would like it,however they thought it was just the kind of movie that takes your thoughts away from all the tragic events in life and you get swept into the comedy,leaving you laughing moments for a couple of days
