Overview

Blake Edwards' 10 stars Dudley Moore as George, a Mancini-type songwriter. Approaching middle age, George feels as if life is passing him by, especially his sex life. Despite the presence of longtime lady friend Sam (Julie Andrews) in his life, he becomes obsessed from afar with Jenny (Bo Derek), who is engaged to be married. Following her to Mexico without her knowledge, George arranges a meeting with Jenny by saving the life of her fiancé, David (Sam Jones). Once he has made her acquaintance, George suddenly finds himself faced with the realities of embarking on such an affair. Beyond renewing the popularity of Maurice Ravel's "Bolero" and turning Bo Derek into a star, upon its release, 10 was one of the most financially successful Blake Edwards films in years.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Robert Firsching
Although best-known today as the film which made Bo Derek a star, this bittersweet sex-comedy rises and falls on the performance of Dudley Moore as a songwriter experiencing a mid-life crisis. Much of the film's humor is of the slapstick variety, as Moore is stung on the nose by a bee during a wedding, repeatedly falls down a hill while trying to answer a phone, and so forth. But the film's real center is Moore's quiet desperation, which is handled with a surprisingly warm and natural touch. The amiable supporting cast includes Julie Andrews, Robert Webber, and Don Calfa, and there's a memorable and funny seduction set to Ravel's Bolero. For all its sex and slapstick, this is a very perceptive film which leaves a wistful trace of sadness behind.
