Not as good as I rememberBy Karl Fusaris from London, England , 31 Oct 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]I saw this film at the cinema in 1984 on a date with my then girlfriend. I remember we both found it funny and charming, particularly enjoying the soundtrack and Gilda Radner, and was looking forward to seeing it again with my current (and much more wonderful) girlfriend. Suffice it to say that it went over like a lead balloon; this isn't the ideal date movie and I'm surprised it went over as well as it did back then. It seems dated and the humour now seems a bit forced. The film's attitude toward infidelity is ambiguous and even a bit disturbing: we see ample evidence of its destructive effect all around, yet the protagonist continues to pursue an extramarital affair in spite of this, at the encouragement of his friends who have also duly suffered. Even the bits with Gilda Radner aren't as funny as I remembered, and the soundtrack is a bit awkwardly integrated. I guess either the movies or my taste have grown up a bit since 1984; probably a bit of both.

Gene JeanieBy a customer , 29 Oct 2011Gene is good in this. Slow film by todays standards, and no exploding kidneys either. Good to sit quietly and hear, and see, what is going on.
Living on the Wilder sideBy a customer from Hull , 06 Feb 2009If you like Gene Wilder you will like this film, granted it's not one of his best but it's still a good comedy, best bit of all is it stars Kelly Le Brock who is stunning in it.
goodBy onion (314 reviews) from leeds , 25 Jan 2009I'll be honest.
I just spent a good half hour writing a bloody good review for this film (it had twists and turn's and everything!) Only for my computer to crash!
So all i'll say is that this is up there with 'The Jerk', 'Police Academy', 'Caddy Shack' and, even more so, 'American Beauty'!
If you haven't seen it, then do!
