Richard Dawson, you never looked better!
15 November 2001 | by (midwest) – See all my reviews

What a movie this is! This love-starved geek from Nebraska decides one day to visit his (shall we say not love-starved) friend in New York. This friend (Desi Jr.) shows him around and after awhile, this guy decides to write a book on how to pick up bimbos (oh, I mean girls!) Well, this guy, being the geek he is, makes a few mistakes along the way, one of them being sleeping with the model girlfriend of his boss, Richard Dawson. I guess all I can say is that this is typical late 70s fluff not to be taken seriously.

What I'd like to know is why Richard, at the height of his popularity as host of "Family Feud," would bother to do this? Not that I'm complaining; he plays a typical fashion model photographer with that certain Richard Dawson flare that made him so popular in the first place.
