Overview

Blake Edwards, mining the same territory as in his 10, Micki and Maude, The Man Who Loved Women, and That's Life, not to mention Blind Date, once again deals with male mid-life menopausal angst. Zach John Ritter is a novelist suffering from writer's block, spiraling downward in a sea of women and booze. To illustrate the depths to which Zach's life has sunk, the film begins when his mistress catches him in bed with another woman. Then his wife walks in. As a result, his wife leaves him. Things keep getting worse --his agent is dying, his house burns down, and he gets picked up for drunk driving. But in spite of his despair, he can't help chasing women, engaging in a series of bedroom misadventures with a collection of women --including a female body builder; a woman who likes to set pianos on fire; and the girlfriend of a rock star who suggests that he wear one of her boyfriend's glow-in-the-dark condoms. Helping Zach regain control of his life is Barney the lawyer Vincent Gardenia and Dr. Westford Michael Kidd, a helpful psychiatrist.

    When the love chase gets old, melancholy rises up and explodes

    Slightly dirty, very funny and at times even sensitive, Skin Deep is a perfect film to curl up to on a Sunday evening and laugh well into the night. There's something charming about the late 80's and early 90's comedies that I like, perhaps since it was during my own childhood that they were made but there's something organic to them that many of today's movies lack like the grittiness and the look of the lenses it was shot with versus plastic and computer like movies of today.

    The humor here is constant; John Ritter portrays a writer who's not only full of himself but also completely addicted to women and alcohol. After his marriage fails (it might have something to do with his many girlfriends) he falls into a slump, he can't write, he cant hold a relationship ( or doesn't want to) and is still obsessed with his ex wife, claiming that she's the only one who can fix him. There's non stop action and jokes, my favorite part was when he followed a foxy looking chick into a spa like retreat only to be subjected to electric shock therapy by an ex, walking out in jitters and at one point tripping on the stairs and grabbing someone's papers spilling them all over the building and then when he ran into a blind man, and couldn't let go of his walking stick, I was laughing so hard that I couldn't breathe, and I cant remember last time that happened to me. I adored that there was a lot of heart in this, one really rooted for the poor deflated author who skimmed the surface of life with empty things that stopped exciting him after a while, and once the crazy things don't make you tick what is left to do? Trying his best to sober up he takes a new lease on life and wraps the story up with a great ending. I adored the whole movie and had a great time watching it.
