Trivia

'Neil Simon' said of his experience working on 'The Marrying Man': "With a play, I have only two people to please - myself and the director. With this movie, it was 19 executives, a director who'd never done anything but animation before, and two stars who would tell you what lines they'd say and what lines they wouldn't say." See more »

Great Hollywood tale! Funny and erotic!
1 May 2005 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

'The Marrying Man' is one of the most underrated Kim Basinger-movie of them all. I have to admit that it's one of my favorite ones. I'm not a person of romantic comedies, but if there's a real beauty goddess in it (like Kim) who makes the whole plot sexier it's really worth to see it. The film is a typical classic-type Hollywood-movie with the sweaty plot of an operetta. The acting is great, the pictures are so colorful and Kim shines like Rita Hayworth in 'Gilda' when she sings the hit songs of Cole Porter and co. Those people who thinks that these kinds of movies are silly have to understand that people of this world needs these nice tales. It's a very professional kind of entertaining with glamorous stars. Kim is a great singer! 'Let's Do It-Let's Fall in Love'...with her.
