Storyline

The soap-operatic story follows the fortunes of three ambitious youngish people: Billy, secretary and then wife to an older zillionaire, whose death frees Billy to start up a Beverly Hills boutique ("Scruples") and to pursue the pretentious and manly but commercially woebegone film director Vito Orsini. Meanwhile, Valentine, a French would-be fashion designer, and Spider, a parking lot attendant/photographer/stud, struggle up the ladder, become buddies and put off a romance that seems inevitable despite their difference in height. After Valentine and Spider become Billy's employees, they team up to navigate a number of speed bumps on the road to happiness. Written by Andrei Blok

More cheese than at a Kraft factory
4 June 2003 | by (Minneapolis, MN) – See all my reviews

This movie is truly, truly awful at times - but has flashes of brilliance.

On the plus side, Barry Bostwick's performance is, more often than not, fun to watch. There are scenes that are so well written, you'll swear the production team included a competent (and, sadly, part-time) script doctor. You can also laugh heartily at the incredibly earnest way in which the characters continually fall in love at the drop of a hat.

On the not-so-good side: The first African-American actor shows up after about an hour and a half, and he's a waiter serving drinks at a party. Ouch. Also, this film has the dubious distinction of containing the worst car chase I have ever seen.

When the writing is good, it's pretty good; when it's bad, it's amazingly bad. Scruples is amazingly bad about 90% of the time. The American Dairy Association would save a fortune if it could harness the power of this much cheese.
