Totally charmless comedy from Blake Edwards, a man who should definitely have known better.  Kim Basinger is hilarious (particularly in the first third of the film) as a beautiful woman who is ‘ blind date at an important business function. He doesn’t know that booze turns her into a nightmare of pratfalls, but after the hilarious opening the film descends into awkward slapstick routines, bumbling villains and other flimsy excuses to keep an already terrible film going to a worse end.

The two lead roles were originally meant for Madonna and Sean Penn, but when he changed his mind about the project so did she. If movies were people, this one would be a mannequin.
