Storyline

Walter Davis is a workaholic. His attention is all to his work and very little to his personal life or appearance. Now he needs a date to take to his company's business dinner with a new important Japanese client. His brother sets him up with his wife's cousin Nadia, who is new in town and wants to socialize, but he was warned that if she gets drunk, she loses control and becomes wild. How will the date turn out - especially when they encounter Nadia's ex-boyfriend David? Written by Sami Al-Taher <staher2000@yahoo.com>

Trivia

Several key interiors were filmed at Blake Edwards Entertainment corporate headquarters, Laird Studios in Culver City. Although Edwards had at the time been housed there since 1983 for around four years, Laird, had been renamed the Culver Studios, and was actually one of the oldest and most famous of Hollywood's studios. It was originally built back in the silent screen era by director Thomas H. Ince, the man who introduced William S. Hart, the famous cowboy star, to films. Ince himself shot a number of silent screen classics there. A southerner by birth, he designed his administration building as a replica of an ante-bellum southern mansion. Later, when the Ince studios were acquired by producer David O. Selznick, the building became familiar to millions of moviegoers as the logo on Selznick films. These include the immortal Gone with the Wind (1939) as well as Rebecca (1940), Intermezzo: A Love Story (1939), and "David Copperfield" [David Copperfield (1935)]. After Blind Date (1987), Edwards made a picture called Sunset (1988), a comedy about the fictional adventures of Wyatt Earp and silent screen cowboy actor Tom Mix in Hollywood, which also starred Bruce Willis from Blind Date (1987).

One of those movies that makes you laugh
8 December 2004 | by See all my reviews

I love this film. This was Bruce Willis' first box office film in a leading role. It's a nice little film that has its funny moments. Blind Date is not Citizen Kane, but it's sure a good film to watch on a day off. When Kim Basinger gets drunk, that's where the funny moments start. She goes from being a sweet southern belle to the date from hell. She embarrasses him at a business dinner, goes ga-ga at a club, gets his car lifted, and drives him to the point of insanity. Meanwhile, ex-boyfriend Larroquette is stalking them around the town driving them nuts. His character isn't given much depth, but he works with it. All in all, it's a funny, innocent film that will make you laugh.
