Storyline

Forty-two year old famed composer/playwright George Webber is going through a midlife crisis. He is seriously dating thirty-eight year old actress/singer Samantha Taylor, who he loves, although he admits their connection is more intellectual than it is emotional. She, in turn, loves him, despite barely tolerating his often infantile behavior. This behavior includes spying on a neighbor's sexual encounters with a wide array of women, this spying about which the neighbor knows, as he does it himself. Driving one day, George spots a young woman who he believes is the most beautiful creature he's ever seen - an "eleven" on a scale of ten, tens which he didn't believe existed before her. Beyond the fact that she is probably half his age, a problem with George's infatuation is that she is just off to her own wedding. George and Sam's relationship takes a hit with an argument which is further exacerbated by a series of misunderstandings. As such, George decides to pursue the woman of his ... Written by Huggo

Trivia

The film's DVD sleeve notes declare that the movie "launched her [Bo Derek] as the first big sex star of the 80's". See more »

Goofs

George drives a 1976 Rolls-Royce Corniche Series I convertible. Yet the "loaner" car issued to him after the wreck is a 1978 Ford Maverick 4-door. It seems unlikely someone that drives a RR would accept a Maverick 4-door as a suitable "loaner" car. It also seems unlikely that a car dealership doing repairs on a RR would have a Maverick as a "loaner" car, or that they would even offer a Maverick 4-door to their clientele that drive a Rolls-Royce.

Quotes

George Webber: Doesn't he do anything except swim and jog on the beach?
Hugh: Oh yes! He makes me happy. So I let him swim and jog on the beach.

Crazy Credits

When the credits of the cast begins to scroll up and out of the iris of the telescope's view to George and Samantha's inside penthouse, only the members of the cast are seen and not their characters they played. See more »

Alternate Versions

The TV print substitutes tamer versions of some of 10's racier moments. In particular, scenes featuring porn star Annette Haven as Dudley Moore's exhibitionist neighbor have been removed, replaced with scenes involving another actress. On scene features Moore's character using a telescope to watch a naked A. Haven making love (in the TV version, we see the substitute actress kissing a man while wearing a robe). A later scene, originally shown as a nude orgy, is replaced by a similar scene, but with everyone wearing bathing suits. In addition, the comedic lovemaking scene between Derek and Moore is played in the dark in the TV version. See more »

Dudley Moore is a natural comedic genius!
11 July 2006 | by jacquelineleigh1See all my reviews

In this film, Dudley plays an award-winning composer.

Another brilliant film that'll make you laugh your head off while watching him run around like a maniac in hot sand!

My mother recommended this film to me because I was born after it was released.

Even in today's society, this movie is hilarious! Dudley Moore is a brilliant comedian.

You'll have to add this movie to your "must list" if you're a Dudley Moore fan. Whenever I am in a depressed mood I know I can pop this movie in and Dudley is going to be able to make me laugh once again.

Get this movie if you want a care-free day of fun and light-hearted amusement.

Not as good as Arthur but if you're a Dudley fan like me, you'll love it!

Also, you'll hear some beautiful arrangements played by Dudley Moore himself.

A classic movie that you should not miss.
