This movie was originally intended to be directed by Blake Edwards. Edwards left the project and the film's development was postponed. Ironically, Edwards was also the original director of City Heat (1984) which Burt Reynolds also starred in but bowed out of the film after creative differences with Clint Eastwood. Edwards and Reynolds eventually worked together on The Man Who Loved Women (1983). See more »

Rough Cut is delicious froth, a shiny bauble of wonderfully made costume jewelry - not the real thing, but so much fun you don't care how silly and artificial it is. Burt Reynolds and the overpoweringly gorgeous Lesley-Anne Down are so perfect in the lead roles that you forgive this movie its many flaws.
This is, essentially, a fairy tale. You know everything will go right, it's just a question of how. It's like the great early 1990s British show Lovejoy
filmed in a beautiful England of pastels and greenery, of charming U
characters and not-all-that-menacing bad guys.
It's just a very enjoyable, very romantic caper movie with two terrific stars and a fine supporting cast, filmed in splendid colors. Everything doesn't have to be Some Like It Hot.
