Did You Know?

Trivia:
To find a "10" for the film, director Blake Edwards originally scouted a variety of locales such as coffee shops, talent agencies, little theaters and model agencies and went to a fashion show where a dozen top models screen-tested underwear of their own choosing. Edwards then decided that spectacular beauty is no substitute for acting talent and that the ability to market products is different to carrying a major acting role in a major motion picture.See more »
Goofs:
Revealing mistakes: When looking through the telescope the picture moves around as if being moved by George. But when it shows George looking through, his hands are behind his back as if he has made no attempt to move the telescope.See more »
Quotes:
Samantha Taylor:[examining George's bee sting] That looks bad, have you taken anything for it?
George:Ah, yes, I took 4 of your birth control pills, I hope that's okay.
Samantha Taylor:[kisses George on the cheek] Try an antihistimine.
George:I don't like those, they make me pregnant!

A Very Melancholy Comedy, 23 January 2005
Author: hokeybutt from Milwaukee, Wisconsin

"10" (4 outta 5 stars) Kind of weird seeing this movie again after 20 years. When I first saw it I was just a kid in my early 20s and now I am older than the character Dudley Moore plays in this movie... a cranky, disillusioned composer going through a mid-life crisis. Dang, I never had one of those at 40... does this mean I'm overdue? Anyway, flawed as this movie is, it is still a classic. It's generally considered a "comedy" but the most effective scenes are the quieter, more melancholy scenes. (The scene where Moore plays the piano in the bar for Dee Wallace gets me every time.) This is probably the best role of Moore's career... he's able to come across as sympathetic even while acting like a jerk for most of the movie. It's the supporting performances by Julie Andrews, Dee Wallace, Robert Webber and Brian Dennehy that really give the movie its depth. Thankfully, Bo Derek doesn't really have to do any acting, so she doesn't throw the movie too much out of whack. The movie seems a lot sadder to me these days... though I thought it was hysterically funny 25 years ago.
