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

In this film, Dudley plays an award-winning composer.
Another brilliant film that'll make you laugh your head off while watching him run around like a maniac in hot sand!
My mother recommended this film to me because I was born after it was released.
Even in today's society, this movie is hilarious! Dudley Moore is a brilliant comedian.
You'll have to add this movie to your "must list" if you're a Dudley Moore fan. Whenever I am in a depressed mood I know I can pop this movie in and Dudley is going to be able to make me laugh once again.
Get this movie if you want a care-free day of fun and light-hearted amusement.
Not as good as Arthur but if you're a Dudley fan like me, you'll love it!
Also, you'll hear some beautiful arrangements played by Dudley Moore himself.
A classic movie that you should not miss.
