Gene Wilder's most successful film as a director at the box-office. Wilder performed three roles on this movie, being also the writer and lead actor. Despite its success at the box-office, the movie was Wilder's penultimate film as a director, Haunted Honeymoon (1986) being his last. See more »

You realise you might have shot me?
Oh, I would never do that... not without a reason. You're not like Joe. Do you know what he did to Theresa? Right in front of me? He had his secretary call at ten o'clock at night and say he had work to do at the office.
He did that?
You men that old trick still works?
Oh, not any more.
I'll get it.

"The Woman in Red" is Gene Wilder's somewhat sloppy comedy that's a remake of the 1977 French movie "Pardon Mon Affaire". Wilder did triple duty on this film. He not only stars but also wrote and directed the picture. As a writer and director, he does a so-so job. This movie has alot of silly moments that are totally preposterous. And it contains a few laughable lines of dialogue. But "The Woman in Red" for the most part is a pretty funny film. Wilder is good as Teddy Pierce, a married man who one day see's a beautiful woman wearing a red dress. After catching a glimpse of this woman, he becomes obsessed with her, and can't get her out of his mind. Wilder gets some good support from an exceptional cast which includes Charles Grodin, Joseph Bolonga, Judith Ivey, Kelly LeBrock (as The Woman in Red), and of course Wilder's late wife, Gilda Radner. "The Woman in Red" ain't a great comedy, but a good one. Only if Wilder had done a better directing job this would have been a great farce.
