Forty-two year old famed composer/playwright George Webber is going through a midlife crisis. He is seriously dating thirty-eight year old actress/singer Samantha Taylor, who he loves, although he admits their connection is more intellectual than it is emotional. She, in turn, loves him, despite barely tolerating his often infantile behavior. This behavior includes spying on a neighbor's sexual encounters with a wide array of women, this spying about which the neighbor knows, as he does it himself. Driving one day, George spots a young woman who he believes is the most beautiful creature he's ever seen - an "eleven" on a scale of ten, tens which he didn't believe existed before her. Beyond the fact that she is probably half his age, a problem with George's infatuation is that she is just off to her own wedding. George and Sam's relationship takes a hit with an argument which is further exacerbated by a series of misunderstandings. As such, George decides to pursue the woman of his ... Written by Huggo

Did You Know?


George Segal's participation in early filming occurred when the Mexico location was photographed first. When the film company returned to Culver City, for filming at the MGM Studios, production was expected, and planned, to continue. Returning to MGM from Mexico, George Segal learned that Blake Edwards had inserted a 'television musical commercial' segment for Julie Andrews, to sing and dance! The feature's interior sets were under construction, being painted, finished, and dressed on the MGM lot's sound stages. Miriam Nelson was rehearsing the choreographed segment with Julie Andrews and male dancers. Declaring that Blake Edwards was using his film to revive Julie Andrews career by riding on his coat tails, George Segal walked off the film! Blake Edwards immediately hired Dudley Moore, shutting down the production until Moore could start, and filming continued. When viewing the Mexican location segments, George Segal is the actor filmed in those scenes. These segments were never re-shot but used in the final film. The 'television commercial musical' production scene was relocated, and re-staged on location at the Pasadena Civic Theater stage, utilized stage scenery rented from the Dallas Civic Light Opera Association's musical stock sets.

10 out of how many stars?
22 April 2006 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

"10" isn't really the sort of movie that I feel that I can just straightforward review, as it has its ups and downs. The plot of course has composer George Webber (Dudley Moore) going through his midlife crisis all obsessed with the hot young women, thereby messing up his relationship with girlfriend Samantha (Julie Andrews). I guess that if the movie has any problem, it's the casting of Moore. From everything that I've ever heard, it sounds like he was kind of worthless and undesirable to be around. Granted, in this movie he does a passable job as George, although it's hard to tell whether the movie is romanticizing or ripping at the LA lifestyle.

As for the movie's famous scene - Bo Derek in her swimsuit - I don't know what else to say. She later spoofed that scene in "Tommy Boy", but I don't know what else she's done recently except appear at the Republican National Conventions. And who on the set of "Mary Poppins" would have ever guessed that Julie Andrews would eventually star in this? Among the really funny scenes in my opinion are the wedding (and the events leading thereto), and what happens when George identifies himself as a Brit. In a way, Dudley Moore was expanding on his character from "Foul Play". Still, I think that we're probably doing Blake Edwards a favor if we remember him more for the "Pink Panther" movies. Also starring Dee Wallace (yep, ET's mom!), Brian Dennehy, and that guy at the end was character actor Don Calfa; you're sure to have seen him somewhere.
