Storyline

Forty-two year old famed composer/playwright George Webber is going through a midlife crisis. He is seriously dating thirty-eight year old actress/singer Samantha Taylor, who he loves, although he admits their connection is more intellectual than it is emotional. She, in turn, loves him, despite barely tolerating his often infantile behavior. This behavior includes spying on a neighbor's sexual encounters with a wide array of women, this spying about which the neighbor knows, as he does it himself. Driving one day, George spots a young woman who he believes is the most beautiful creature he's ever seen - an "eleven" on a scale of ten, tens which he didn't believe existed before her. Beyond the fact that she is probably half his age, a problem with George's infatuation is that she is just off to her own wedding. George and Sam's relationship takes a hit with an argument which is further exacerbated by a series of misunderstandings. As such, George decides to pursue the woman of his ... Written by Huggo

Trivia

Sam J. Jones played David Hanley, husband of Jenny Hanley. Ironically, Jones's next role was Bo Carlson in the tele-movie Stunts Unlimited (1980). Jones played a character in his next film who had the same first name as his co-star in this movie. See more »

Crazy Credits

When the credits of the cast begins to scroll up and out of the iris of the telescope's view to George and Samantha's inside penthouse, only the members of the cast are seen and not their characters they played. See more »

Alternate Versions

The TV print substitutes tamer versions of some of 10's racier moments. In particular, scenes featuring porn star Annette Haven as Dudley Moore's exhibitionist neighbor have been removed, replaced with scenes involving another actress. On scene features Moore's character using a telescope to watch a naked A. Haven making love (in the TV version, we see the substitute actress kissing a man while wearing a robe). A later scene, originally shown as a nude orgy, is replaced by a similar scene, but with everyone wearing bathing suits. In addition, the comedic lovemaking scene between Derek and Moore is played in the dark in the TV version. See more »

Really its 6 out of 10 !
13 November 2005 | by johnmbaleSee all my reviews

This film was really a vehicle for Dudley Moore (Cuddly Dudley) when he was at the peak of his career, along with the opportunity to display the obvious charms of Bo Derrick, who spends much of her time on the screen smoldering or preening. As a rather not so obscure object of desire, Bo is more model than actress. A laborious comedy at best, certainly below Blake Edwards best standards, a few funny moments, (as with the old girl and the tray) but a great deal of boring stuff in between. No doubt Moore's fans in the 70's were impressed, and he is a lovable character, especially when he plays being tipsy, but there is not enough meat in the sandwich this time.
