Yo, what's with the lousy ratings?
22 November 2000 | by (West Chester, Pa) – See all my reviews

There's a lot of things going for this movie: 1) Great, great Stevie Wonder musical score; 2) Gene Wilder in real romantic distress, and 3) first class ensemble work involving Gilda Radner, Joseph Bologna, Judith Ivey, Charles Grodin and others. Each of four very close friends encounters extra-relationship entanglement, film centers on Wilder's infatuation with much younger model LeBrock. The real fun is in the interaction between and among Wilder's friends, a truly enjoyable experience. Lots of negative comments here on IMDb related to "the original" movie (which I haven't seen) - I think it's only fair to judge this one on its own merits. I could watch this movie 20 times, in fact, I HAVE watched this movie 20 times. With apologies to all the bashers I give it 10 out of 10.
