Blind Date

( 5 )

Overview

When speaking of Laurel and Hardy's first feature film Pardon Us, Stan Laurel described it as "a three-story building on a one-story base"-in other words, a 2-reeler stretched and bloated into 6 reels. Much the same could be said of Blake Edwards's Blind Date, though one wonders if Stan Laurel could have even gotten two reels out of its wafer-thin premise. At the outset, yuppie Bruce Willis is warned not to let his blind date, southern belle Kim Basinger, drink anything stronger than lemonade. So what does Willis...

Overview

When speaking of Laurel and Hardy's first feature film Pardon Us, Stan Laurel described it as "a three-story building on a one-story base"-in other words, a 2-reeler stretched and bloated into 6 reels. Much the same could be said of Blake Edwards's Blind Date, though one wonders if Stan Laurel could have even gotten two reels out of its wafer-thin premise. At the outset, yuppie Bruce Willis is warned not to let his blind date, southern belle Kim Basinger, drink anything stronger than lemonade. So what does Willis do the first chance he gets? That's right, kids; he plies poor Basinger with champagne. And then he wonders why his life rapidly goes to hell in a handbasket. In his first starring movie role, Bruce Willis manages to find all sorts of nuances in his one-note role, while Kim Basinger is very funny when she's blotto-at least, for the first five minutes or so. John Laroquette costars as a character straight out of a 1920s bedroom farce; he's also pretty good, even though his dialogue is numbingly unamusing. Blake Edwards is famous for his ability to make a lot out of a little...but there has to be a limit somewhere.

    She Goes Craaaazeee

    This is one of my all time favorite movies. Blake Edwards is a genius, and this is one of his very best films. It starts with a teesy tiny little allergic reaction. The events of the evening unfold with increasing absurdity and the acting is fantastic. The dinner scene - how does this champagne taste again? Mrs. Yamimoto, I have your hair...are you a resident of the state of California? Now that Walter has most certainly lost his job, let's proceed to Nadia's friends - what is Walter's occupation again? 106, 106 at the forum, magic shoots ------ anyway just get this one. It may possibly be a cure for cancer, if laughing as they say is the best medicine.

    Absolutely Hilarious!

    I know that not many people have seen or even heard of this movie before and that's really sad becuase it's one of the funniest movies I have ever seen! And I also try to show it to as many people as I can and everybody goes home laughing! Kim Basinger and Bruce Willis have such great chemistry together and John Laroquette is the funniest! I can't tell you too much so get up off your butt and go rent the movie now!
