In the Bedroom
8 January 2005 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

Gene Wilder, Kelly LeBrock and Gilda Radner are the highlights of this great 80's comedy. One of Wilder better comedies of the 80's, it is also one of his funniest. Kelly LeBrock was at the peek of her career, for here, it was all down hill. LeBrock's beauty makes her the treasure of ever guy's desire. For Wilder, he is ready to destroy his life, in a funny way, in order to have her. Gilda Radner is just funny. Every time she is on the screen, she makes you laugh. Her addition to the cast makes everything else funny. A smaller role that what she was use to in previous films, her addition to the cast is beyond perfect. Much like the comedy team of Wilder and Pryor, Wilder and Radner had a great on screen chemistry, that was second to none when it came to comedy (couples) team.
