Goofs

When Gene Wilder's character is backing into his parking space after standing up Gilda Radner's character, he appears to be looking into a rear view mirror in the car but when Gilda's character approaches to damage his car, there is no rear view mirror in the car. There was a rear view mirror in the previous scene involving the car, as well as the next scene involving the car. Also, later in the film the rear view mirror disappears once more when Teddy is driving with Buddy. See more »

Great stuff
23 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

I literally laughed till i cried at this super piece of work. I am a big fan of Gene Wilder, he seems to have a natural ability to make me laugh, so i knew i was in for a good laugh here. I must have seen The Woman in Red about 12 times now over the years and it just keeps getting better. What a shame Gene Wilder doesn't make movies any more, i feel there is no good talent around for comedy these days. It seems to be just young guys who are good looking so people would like them whatever they do. Gene Wilder on the other hand is a comedy legend, not just an actor but a director and writer, he is a man of many talents and i really miss him. Also worth noting about The Woman in Red is the soundtrack by Stevie Wonder, it's so 80's and it just brings me back to those days again. Gene Wilder plays a man seeking adventure in his life and becomes obsessed with the woman in red played by Kelly LeBrock. That's your basic storyline, simple and straight to the point so the laughs begin immediately as Teddy (Wilder) pursues Charlotte (LeBrock) and gets into all kinds of trouble as he chases after the woman in red. Hilarious.
