Excellent "Sleeper" Screwball Comedy, 19 August 2001
Author: Kenn-15 from Marin County, CA

This film isn't very well known, and should be, especially for Kim Basinger fans. It proves once and for all that comedy is her forte, and that she has broad range between performances such as this and her role in "Fool for Love" as a character actress, and not just a pretty face or an adequate leading lady. The chemistry between her and Jeff Bridges is like TNT and drives the film forward, and the added comic bluster of Rip Torn as the villain (and the clever script and direction by veteran Robert Benton) makes this a comic gem in the true tradition of the 1930s screwball comedies, but updated for the 1980s. If you're a fan of such films as "His Girl Friday," and would like to see what that frenetic energy and great chemistry can be like updated into the 1980s, see this movie!
