Funnier Way Back When
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on September 10, 2014
Strange things about "10." It's one of those films that was hysterical when it came out, and watching it many years later it doesn't seem as funny. Oh it has very funny scenes, especially when he's trying to use the phone and talk to the police after having been numbed up by the dentist. The perv neighbor doesn't seem so funny nowadays, and the whole plot, composer in Beverly Hills has wealthy successful and decent girlfriend, so what does composer do? Falls for a young bride and follows her to Mexico on her honeymoon. Dudley is of course cute as heck in this film, but not that nice of a character. Film has a gay character as his friend, I remember that was new at the time. Film made worldwide gossip mag sensation out of Bo Derek, who became the subject of Whatever Happened To articles by the 1990s. SPOILER ALERT: Perhaps NOT surprisingly, she easily invites him to her room for sex while her new husband is in the hospital. Dudley realizes she's a floozy and an airhead and goes back to decent girlfriend.
