Storyline

In these times of enlightened sexual politics, Ted Davis is a scoring machine. He's got the rap, the charm and his little black book weighs several pounds. Ted has become a guru to his buddies who can only aspire in awe to his greatness. This is a man's man, a ladies man, a super-hero: He's Ted Davis: "BachelorMan" When the woman of his dreams, "Heather" moves in next door, Ted's ordeal begins. She's beautiful, long-legged, athletic and LOUD. Her constant groans and howls of amorous pleasure turn Ted's domain of conquest and libidinous triumph into a nightmare world of BachelorMan-Interruptus. So the hunt begins as Ted delivers a first round of come-ons and invitations for his object of desire to become entangled, but nothing works. When all seems hopeless, Ted gets some guidance from his good friend Meg that turns the situation around: "Don't scam on her, listen to her, be SINCERE." Of course! Ted runs next door to attest his true feelings for the only woman he could ever love - and ... Written by Films On Tap

i like comedies. i like all types of comedies that are funny. i like comedies from 'w.c. fields in 'the dentist' (1920's) to 'kung pow' (2000's). that's 80 years of comedies that i like, give or take a few.

mclintock, catch 22, sabrina (both), topper, my man godfrey, freebie and the bean, hey, even planet 9 from outer space, i enjoy a good laugh.

but here i quote robert wuhl in 'good morning, vietnam', "what is the appeal of joey bishop? i mean, i know funny, and this guy is not funny!"

this movie is like the old 'joey bishop show'. it might be interesting, even entertaining, but it is not funny.

the people involved with the making of this movie tried to present it as a funny movie, and it's not very funny. it's like they were trying to present us with up-dated versions of lenny bruce (it's sh**, sh**, sh**), and richard pryor (hey, mother f**** n****, roflol that he said mother f***** n*****, right? ain't that a hoot???)

how this movie works at all is that the people involved with the making of it have some insights into the human condition, and they have some humorous ways of presenting these insights at times. the movie rings true on some of these levels, sometimes. but it should have been made as a drama, a musical without music, a documentary, an animated featurette, anything but a comedy, because it's just not funny.

the makers of this movie are not clueless, except when it comes to being funny.

to paraphrase mr. wuhl, 'i know funny, and these people are not it'. i just watched this movie. i had one really great spontaneous laugh from it. this is good, comedy is good. one laugh per movie is a little low on the laugh-o-meter scale.

i hope that everybody enjoys every movie that they see. it's just that this ain't likely to be one of them. it's not very good.
